Dianna T. Zimmerman, 78, of formerly of Bear Creek Township, passed away Tuesday evening, September 14, 2021 at the inpatient unit of Residential Hospice, Geisinger South, Wilkes-Barre.

Born in Wilkes-Barre, she was the daughter of the late John and Anna (Hutz) Yatsko.

Dianna was a graduate of James M. Coughlin High School, Wilkes-Barre, Class of 1961, and was employed early on at WBRE channel 28 and Consolidated Freightways as an administrative assistant and later as a pharmacy technician for 35 years at the Wilkes-Barre General Hospital until her retirement.

She will be greatly missed.
