Dianne L. Paytas, 56, of Freedom, passed away Thursday, April 20, 2023 at Heritage Valley Beaver Hospital after a brief illness.
Born in Pittsburgh PA, she was a waitress at Toula’s Hot Dog Shop in Pittsburgh for over 20 years but most recently a waitress at Eatn’ Park in Monaca PA. She enjoyed playing games on her iPad, going to Goodwill in search of Lenox glassware, fishing in ponds and watching her grandson grow up.
She was kind to everyone and could make friends with a stranger on the street. Everyone who met her was taken by her kindness, willingness to help, stubbornness and most importantly her love for others.
She is survived by her husband Tom Lancos; daughter, Kayla Paytas Murgenovich (Ryan); daughter, Isabella Paytas; grandson, Jasper Murgenovich; brother, Bob Sterbacky; sister, Janet Leahy (Patrick); nieces Allyson Elzey and Jessica Neurohr.
She is preceded in death by her son, Pvt. Dylan Ryan Paytas; stepson Thomas (TC) Lancos; stepson Michael Lancos.
Per Dianne’s request, there will be no public memorial service. Private family services were held.
