HERMITAGE, Pennsylvania (MyValleyTributes) – Diane (Orr) Peters, 65, of Hermitage, passed away Friday morning, November 19, 2021, in Sharon Regional Medical Center, surrounded by her children.

Ms. Peters was born March 14, 1956, in Ellwood City, a daughter of the late William F. and Marion Eleanor (Jessop) Orr.

She was a 1974 graduate of Riverside High School, Ellwood City. Diane earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Nursing from Carlow University, Pittsburgh.

She was employed as a registered nurse for more than 40 years at UPMC Jameson Hospital, New Castle, retiring on March 27, 2021. During her career, she worked in the operating room for more than 30 years and prior to retirement was in the infusion center. Diane truly loved being a nurse and that was shown in the quality of care she gave her patients.

She was multi-talented, with skills in gardening, cooking, baking, photography, scrapbooking and bobbin lace. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her family and playing with her grandchildren.

She is survived by three daughters, Anne Sternart and her husband, Zach, of Mt. Jackson, Pennsylvania, Lauren Gravatte of Hermitage and Kathryn Peters of Sharon; three grandchildren, Lylah and Niko Gravatte and Rebecca Johnson and a brother, Douglas Orr and his wife, Melodee, of Alabama.
