In addition, she worked tirelessly at the Holocaust Memorial Center as a docent and assisted in the redesign and organization of the exhbit as it related to her birth country of Lithuania. Diana was involved in many other charites and quietly supported many in need. She was a member of Congregation B'nai Torah in Boca Raton and was a past member of Congregation Shaarey Zedek.
