March 23, 1948 - August 28, 2021
Flanagan, Diane Violet 73, of Clearwater, Florida, passed away the morning of August 28, 2021, in Clearwater, Florida. She was the wife of Charles Flanagan. Born in Clearwater, Florida and raised in Dunedin, Florida, Diane resided in Dunedin, Florida, for many years before moving to her residence in Clearwater, Florida. Diane found her career passion early in life when she started cooking. She worked throughout the years at various restaurants, the Clearwater Yacht Club and Assisted Living Facilities. Personally, she also shared her love of cooking with friends, family and local church ministries. Diane grew up with 7 siblings, 6 brothers and 1 sister. She was raised Christian in a Pentecostal church in Dunedin (previously Dunedin Church of God). Diane’s love of cooking was only surpassed by the love she had for her family, friends and neighbors. Outside of spending time with family she enjoyed throwing parties, going out to eat, making crafts, beautifying her home, and celebrating with people. She was presented a trophy while living at On Top of the World for “the most loving, kindest and best neighbor”. She had a servant’s heart and never shied away from an opportunity to extend an act of kindness. Diane is reunited in heaven with her brother James Raymond Hammond; her mother Violet Zipancich Hammond; her father Oscar “Lucky” Leon Hammond; her brother Robert “Bobby” Hammond; and her fur-baby Pepper. Diane is survived by her husband Charles Flanagan; 5 siblings, Nada Hunt, Leon Hammond, Dale Hammond, Oscar Hammond and Charlie Hammond; 2 children, Diane Holmes and Stephanie Pleasant; 1 granddaughter, Amber Pleasant; and 3 great-grandchildren, Arianna Emery, Emmett Emery and Amora Emery. Flowers may be sent to Harbor Life Church, 2701 Rigsby Lane, Safety Harbor, FL 34695 or Curlew Hills Memory Gardens, 1750 Curlew Rd. Palm Harbor, FL 34683, on September 24, 2021.

He maketh me lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
