Posted

Diane Reigle, 69, of Middletown, passed away at her home on Wednesday, January 3, 2018 with her loving family by her side.

She was a devoted wife, mother and friend to all who knew her. Diane was a pillar in the community, volunteering her time for many years with the Ladies Auxiliary of the Rescue Fire Department, donating to local charities and the less fortunate. She loved to read, loved the outdoors, and was an avid hunter. Her two sons have spent a lifetime trying to harvest a buck as large as their mother’s. Diane spent most of her free time at her cabin on the Susquehanna River with her husband, and family and friends, her favorite place in the world. Diane was a lifelong hairdresser and was the owner/operator of Diane’s Hairclipper in Middletown. Clients came not just for a haircut, but the friendship and conversation.

Born August 2, 1948 in Harrisburg, she was the daughter of Robert Snyder Jr. and Joyce Cole Altemara. She was preceded in death by her brother, Duke Snyder Sr.

She is survived by her mother, Joyce Cole Altemara; her loving husband of 51 years Bill Reigle Sr.; two sons, Bill Reigle Jr. (Ellen) and Barry Reigle (Bobby Jo); three sisters, Peggy Snyder (Rick), Jan Aichner (Tim) and Patti Hummel (Jeff); and a brother, Robert Snyder lll, all of Middletown.

Diane has four grandchildren, Bill Reigle lll (Ashley), Shane Reigle (Amanda), Stephanie Reigle (Eric) and Jesse Reigle; three great-grandchildren, Mckenna, Jackson and Parker; and multiple nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.

Diane was resilient, dedicated and loving to all her friends and family and believed in the good of humanity, the strength of family and friends, and the power of prayer. Diane was loved by many and will be sorely missed.

Services will be private at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in her honor to Hospice of Central PA, 1320 Linglestown Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17110.
