Diane Abbott (nee Cronmiller), 75, of Audubon, NJ passed away on Feb. 7, 2014.

Daine was always a "people person" and spent over twenty years tending bar at Johnny Banana's Tavern. She was always willing to lend a helping hand. She would give to others, even when she did not have much for herself. She led a simple, but rich life filled with family and love. She was the glue that held everyone around her together. Daine loved with her whole heart and she was cherished by her family and friends.
"She Will Always Be Our Sunshine"

"You can shed tears that I am gone,
Or you can smile because I have lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that I will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that I have left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see me,
Or you can be full of the love that we shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember me and only that I am gone,
Or you can cherish my memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what I would want: smile, open your eyes, love, and go on."
     Adapted from quote by David Harkins

Diane was the devoted mother of Michael (Linda) Abbott of Somerdale, Dennis (Joyce) Abbott of Willingboro, Terri L. Wade of Runnemede and Brian (Melody) of N. Ft. Meyers, FL. She loved her many grand and great grandchildren and was the dear sister of Charles Cronmiller, Mary Lord and Kathy Hemphill.

Dear Mom, They say time softens the pain of losing someone but in reality the pain grows stronger. I miss you so much. I want to hear your voice and smell your smell. You would make me feel better when no one else even knew I was in pain. I love you my dear friend, my Mother.
