Freeland, MD - Dianne J. Stewart, 59, passed away Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. She was the wife of the late Michael Stewart. Born in Baltimore, MD, she is the daughter of Thomas and Florence (Marino) Griffin of New Freedom.

Dianne attended Stevenson University and Towson University and worked as a preschool teacher, treasured by hundreds of children and their parents, for 29 years. She was a natural cook, a skillful gardener, and a gifted decorator who had a flair for making any space beautiful. She was a beloved mother, friend, and neighbor with a remarkable ability to put others before herself; she will be remembered fondly as a deeply caring, nurturing, warm, and hospitable woman. Most of all, she loved spending time with family and her canine companion, Teddy.

In addition to her parents, Dianne leaves to cherish her memory two daughters, Kirsten McMahon and her husband Jeff, Jacqueline Stewart and her fiancé Bryan Levillain; her companion Richard Martin; and two siblings Donna Griffin and David Griffin.
