Born in Grosse Pointe Michigan, Diane was the second daughter of Helen and Marvin Beaupre.
Much of her youth was spent in sight of Lake Saint Clair, as she loved being on or near the water. As a family, the Beaupre’s spent summers at their cottage in Stoney Point, Ontario and many days at the Farms Pier in Grosse Pointe.
After graduating from St. Paul High School, Diane went on to have an exciting career in aviation. From Delta, to a corporate flight attendant with GM, Chrysler, Guardian Industries, and Michigan sports teams. Diane loved her job working with the Pistons, Tigers, and Red Wings.
She was an avid fan and enjoyed supporting these athletes. Her work with these clubs spanned over 30 years and she was a part of several championship seasons. She was also an active member of the Nomads Travel Club for many years which took her around the world.
Since 1987, Diane resided in Plymouth where she was involved with many areas in the community. Diane was considerate and reached out to many people among the years to support them in times of need. Diane was a volunteer driver for the “Meals on Wheel’s’ program, and a fixture as a Salvation Army holiday bell ringer. Diane also volunteered at the Plymouth Village Theatre, enjoyed any boating excursion, especially Detroit’s river cruise options, the library film club, The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians Irish Ladies group, and donating her time at the Freedom Center (USO) at the Detroit airport.
Loving Mother of her three children, Tracy Tutag, Tim Tutag, and Elizabeth (Phil) Tremarco and her four grandchildren, Justin Tutag, Makenna Tutag, Nicholas Tremarco, and Mason Tremarco. She is survived by her siblings Marilyn (the late Neil) Severn, Bonnie (Mike) Roy, Marvin (Lynne) Beaupre, John Beaupre and Mary (the late Chet) Yavor.
Diane took great pride in her grandchildren and loved spending time with them whenever possible.
