Diana Lee Cirimele

Diana Lee Cirimele, a woman known not only for her love of everything Elvis, but also for her unwavering strength and practical, no-nonsense approach to life, has left the building for her final performance on March 28, 2024, in the comfort of her Roseville home. She was 78 years young.

Born in San Francisco on February 12, 1946, to John and Veneta Griffith, Diana came into this world with a rebellious twinkle in her eye and a whimsical, child-like wonder. She was fierce- armed with the sharpest wit and a no-nonsense attitude, she was never one to shy away from a challenge or from speaking her mind.

From childhood, Diana had a tight bond with her parents and brothers: Jim, Rocky, and Harry; which she would later carry on to her children and husband, Albert Cirimele. It was within this marriage that Diana proved her resilience and determination. Weathering life’s storms together, Al and Diane showcased what true love is and set an example for many generations to come.

As a mother, Diana was tough but compassionate, instilling the importance of hard-work and self-reliance. She leaves behind a legacy through her children and their spouses: Angela and Chris, Anna and Dennis, Craig and Malinda, Debra and John, and Ellen and Craig (No, that’s not a typo, there are two different Craigs. If you think that’s confusing, try attending one of our family gatherings), and through her grandchildren and great(s) grandchildren.

Waiting for her on her “Second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning” passage, are her son David, daughter Alberta, brothers Harry and Rocky, and those she loved who had gone before.

In celebration of her life, there will be a gathering at Graceland… Just kidding! Instead, a lively memorial will take place at St. Clare Catholic Church in Roseville, where everyone attending will share stories of her mischievous antics and love for life. A burial will be held the following week in Dixon.

While her physical presence is no longer here, Diana’s spirit lives on in the laughter and joy she brought to those who knew her. In every memory, phrase, and touch she left behind.

In the words of The King; “Thank you, thank you very much” Diana for the laughter, the memories, and the unforgettable love. Have a safe trip to Neverland and may you rest in peace.


You ask me if I see you

Since I have gone away

I try to help you understand

I watch over you each day

You wonder if I hear you

When you talk to me at night

I hear you say you love me

You will never leave my sight

You cry so many tears for me

They flow upon your face

Please feel me as I wipe your tears

I want a smile upon your face

Remember our sweet memories

The times we shared with love

Hold on to all your hopes and dreams

I support them from above

Let go of all your Guilt and Pain

Let go of all your Fears

God just had other plans for me

Why carry that all these years?

The day I passed is not the day I made you love me so

Please cherish all the memories made before I had to go

Just take the day I passed and put it in a box with care

Now hand the box to God please for it isn’t yours to bear

Please know I’ll always love you

As I watch you carry on

And know that I am here with you

For we are never really Gone…
