Learning of Diana's untimely death brings me great sorrow. Her brother Vince and I were friends in college and I first met her when she visited him on a siblings weekend at the University of Dayton in 1987. The next year she enrolled at UD and I had the pleasure of sharing her company on many delightful occasions throughout that year. I recall her big smile, beautiful eyes, charming wit and deep love for her family. My family and I will keep Diana and all her loved ones in our prayers, especially her husband and children.

Dear Pyle and Staniskis Families,
Heartfelt condolences on the loss of Diana. Though I have not seen her for many years, I remember Diana from our Camp Dainava days. Will always remember her bright smile, her sincerity, her talents in the Lithuanian language, and how close she was to her late Mother. May your family find comfort in knowing Diana and her Mother will be reunited in God's kingdom as you grieve the loss of your beloved daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. With deepest sympathy, Imsre Sabaliunas-Bruzgiene

I was Diana's coworker, and looked forward to the shifts that we shared. She was fun and feisty, and always managed to make me laugh. More than anything, her love for her family and her children shined through in everything she did. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know her wonderful soul.

Our moms were best friends from their Germany days and Diana and I 'grew up' together during Chicago-Cleveland visits. This photo is at our house in Lemont 1972. We first went to Camp Dainava together in 1982 and I've recently had the pleasure of being at camp with her kids. In her short time on earth, she raised them well and will be missed. My deepest sympathy to your entire family. - Ramona (Povilaitis) Vaikutis

Matthew: I'm deeply sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you and your children.
You might not remember me; I'm a close friend of Paul's. I think I met you and Diana at Alex's graduation, or some other family gathering around that time.
A group of Paul's friends are coming Friday. If you don't remember me it's OK--you certainly have enough on your mind.
Again, my heartfelt condolences.
