Diane M. Daley

Diane M. Daley was born on November 6, 1954, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Leonard and Helen Swanson.  She passed away on May 27, 2021, at Suncoast Hospice Care.


She was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard Swanson (2009) and Helen Swanson (2010).  She is survived by husband Mark Daley of Dunedin, sister Lynne Jacques (Gary) of Hemlock, Michigan, brother Leonard Swanson (Ruby) of Edmonton, Alberta, niece Cheryl, and nephews Adam, Carl, and Paul.  She is also survived by stepchildren Marshall Daley (Andrea), Alan Daley (Ashley), and John Donlin (Kelly) as well as sisters-in-law Roxanne Ciarletta, Rhonda Rottman (Matt), and Rebecca Daley.


Diane was employed by the Florida State Attorney 6th District as a systems analyst.  She was an avid animal lover, volunteering at the SPCA Tampa Bay for many years.  She was an accomplished musician and sang with the Tampa Bay Master Chorale.  She loved to travel with husband Mark and enjoyed European river cruises with her sister Lynne.  She was a kind and generous person loved by all that knew her.

Donations in her memory can be made to the SPCA of Tampa Bay.


There will be an open house at the Daley residence on Monday, May 31, 2021 from 2 to 4 pm. A celebration of Diane’s life is being planned for later this year.

    Diane and I met in college – singing together and sharing an apartment for a while. She was such a kind and lovely person, always willing to help and always had a kind word. My condolences Mark, such a loss.

  • Candy Rodgers says:

    Diane and I worked together at Pinellas County Government in Clearwater for over 11 years. We were great friends also. She was a sweet, kind, generous, caring and thoughtful person and a great friend. Very sad loss, she will be missed so much. My condolences to Mark and family.

  • Kurt Kuhlman says:

    I’ve known Diane virtually the entire time I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay area, about 30 years, having been hired onto her team at Tampa General Hospital in 1992. She became a very close friend and confidant. We consoled each other during life’s challenges, we celebrated with each other during life’s highlights. As everyone knows, she was friendly, sweet, bright, funny. To say she’ll be missed is a severe understatement. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family – I hope you soon find peace.
