Diyan Strisko Wiseman

Diyan Strisko Wiseman passed away peacefully at home on Friday, September 28, 2012. She was born in Hammond, Indiana and had lived on Merritt Island since 1963.

Diyan lost her beloved husband, Ronald H. Wiseman, in 2003 and more recently her parents, Robert Strisko and Duwaine Penny Warzynski. She is survived by her dear son, Blake Wiseman of Merritt Island; brothers, Robert (Bobby) Strisko, Randy Strisko (Debbie); sister, Leah Arieux (Jon); stepfather, William Warzynski; nieces and nephews, Heather, Laura, Ryan, Cassie and Dustin; great-nieces and nephews, Dylan, Kayden, Jocelyn and Hayden; and cousins who were like siblings to her.

Her circle of friends is enormous. Diyan was an active member of the Kiwi Club, playing tennis almost daily with her "tennis buds" who will no doubt miss her energy and game. Her passing has left a hole in the hearts of her Island Girls that will never be filled. She was the piece of the puzzle who kept everyone together. Diyan had friendships from every phase of her life and she treasured each and every one of them. She was the kind of friend a friend would like to have.

Diyan had a huge place in her heart for animals, and canine friends especially. She recently lost her beloved companions, Bentley and Matilda, her Boston Terriers. Diyan supported animal causes and we would like to ask that any donations in her name be made to the Boston Terrier Rescue.

Memorial services are to be private.

Please remember Diyan in your own personal way. She will be dearly missed and always loved by everyone who knew her.
