Obituary Condolences

STINE, Diana Goodwin Guglielmi - Native San Franciscan, 62, passed away in Tiburon, on June 19, 2005. Diana expressed her life long love of classical music by singing in many Bay Area choral groups and small opera companies. She also branched out into choreography, dancing and stage directing. In her early years she filled roles on the San Francisco Opera stage as a child to various divas, as well as small creatures - angels, sprites and fairies. She loved working with young cast members, communicating her professionalism and enthusiasm for performing in productions. Diana's mother, the late Dora DiTano, was the accompanist to the San Francisco Opera Chorus, so Diana knew many operas by heart and spoke fluent Italian and French in addition to her native English. Her father, Charles Goodwin, was also a singer and participated in the North Beach Beat Era scene. Diana's uncle, Bay Area composer Jack Goodwin, included her in productions of some of his operas, most notably the humorous '60s era, "The Pizza Pusher." Diana is survived by her loving husband, Charles E. Stine of Tiburon, who prior to retirement, was the president of the Montgomery Street Foundation. She was also married to the late Delio Guglielmi. Her longtime friend Karen Hanning, along with many friends and participants in various opera and choral groups in the Bay Area, will miss her and long remember her vivacious enthusiasm, superior singing ability and joy in performance.
