Diguette of Clinton; her niece Linda Valentine of Philadelphia, PA; sister-in-law Jean Kelleher & husband Paul of Ayer; cousins, extended family and many dear friends, notably, Mary Ellen Moore.

She graduated from the Clinton High School, Class of 1957, obtained her undergraduate degrees in English and Drama from Marymount College, and her Master of Education degree from Worcester State College. Mrs. Diguette enjoyed her twenty-five year career as a 5th grade teacher at the Clinton Middle School, where she, alongside Kevin Winn, served as co-chair of the Drama Department and directed countless plays and productions until retiring.
