Diana Winson Lott


September 26, 1925  -  May 10, 2023

Diana W. Lott passed peacefully away on the morning of May 10, 2023, at Homewood of Frederick.  

Born in Kenora, Ontario on September 26, 1925, to Howard and Honore Wheeler.

She grew up in International Falls Minn., the coldest place in the US as she would regularly remind us.

Diane came to Washington, DC during WWII to work for the Navy Yard as a secretary. While in DC she met her future husband Don, a Navy boy from DC whom she married in 1946.

They settled in Clinton, Maryland where they raised their family and enjoyed a wonderful life.

The family enjoyed time at their cottage at White Point Beach in St. Mary’s County swimming and fishing.  Traveling to new destinations in their trailer with their Lions Club family and close friends kept them busy.  When Don retired, they moved to their winter home in Surf Side Beach, SC enjoying many years of new and old friendships.

In 2000 they became one of the first residents to move into the new apartments at Homewood at Crumland Farms. After Don passed, Diane spent many happy years volunteering and enjoying many new friendships.

Diane was predeceased by her husband L. Donald Lott in 2000. Her parents and her brother William Wheeler.

She is survived by daughter Kristine Wade (Chuck) of Frederick, son Jeffrey Lott (Jacqueline) of Charles Town, WV. Grandsons Jacob T. Moxon of Frederick and Dustin Lott (Amber) of Florida. Along with several nieces and nephews.

Services will be private and handled by Hilton Funeral Home.  Interment will be at Trinity Memorial Gardens later.

The family is grateful for the care and community that Homewood provided our mother for the past twenty-three years. Special thanks to her caregivers  during the time that she was in Assisted Living.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the Benevolent Fund of Homewood.7407 Willow Rd. Frederick, MD  21701.
