Diane Kolleda, 53, entered into rest on November 20, 2012 in Hughson, CA, surrounded by her loving husband, son and brother, after a six year battle with early-onset Alzheimer’s. She was born on April 4, 1959, the youngest of four children born to the late Donald and Yvonne Gittings of Fremont, CA.
She is survived by her husband Les Scully of Modesto, son, Sean Kolleda of Manteca, brothers, Craig Gittings and wife, Jeanene of Astoria, OR, and Sean Gittings of Minnesota, her stepmother, Marilynn Gittings of Red Bluff, CA, Diane was the proud and loving grandmother of Briana and Sean of Manteca and Cora of Alaska.
She married her husband, Leslie Scully in November of 2000, just before accepting a three year transfer from the Tracy Defense Depot to the Defense Depot in Germersheim, Germany, during which time they were able to travel throughout Europe. After 18 years, illness forced her to leave her job with the Defense Depot in Tracy. She loved her job and the people with whom she worked.
Diane went to the waiting arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ, early in the afternoon Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at Alexander Cohen Hospice House in Hughson. Thanks to Alexander Cohen Hospice House, her final days were peaceful and she was supported by those that meant the most to her.
