Diane M.'s Story
Diane M. Rodden, of Groveton, N.H., passed away on Monday, June 26, 2017, in Lowell, Mass., surrounded by her family and friends.
Diane was born in Lawrence, daughter of the late Mathias V. and Dorothy I. Bridges, and the sister of the late Joan Jackson. Diane was raised in North Andover and graduated from Lawrence High School. She met and married her loving husband of 47 years, Vincent A. Rodden, who passed away in 2015. Diane eventually graduated from Capella's School of Hair Design in 1988 and opened her own salon in Fort Myers, Fla. called Just For Kids.
She is survived by her daughter, Kathleen Defreitas and husband, Jorge of Lowell; son, Vincent (Sean) Rodden and wife, Melissa of Groveton; son, Theodore Vynorius of Korea; and son, Steven Vynorius and wife, Anastasia of Pelham. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Vincent (Zachary) Rodden, Katelin Rodden, Nicholas Rodden, Caitlyn Vynorius, Mitchell Vynorius, and Alexandria Vynorius.
Diane was truly loved by everyone she met. She was kind, gentle, loving, and caring. Diane was the kind of person that would give you whatever she had, even if meant she would go without. Even after being diagnosed with stage four cancer, she stayed positive.
