Diana Perez passed on 6/18/21 at the age of 55 of natural causes in Portland Oregon.
She was born 8/25/65 in New York City to Marta Vivaldi Perez (deceased) and Andres Perez. She remained single and lived with her family in New York City before following family members as they moved to Buffalo, New York and Portland, Oregon.
She received her high school diploma in NYC and completed an associates degree at Erie Community College in Buffalo, New York. She continued studying at several other community colleges and was always looking for another course to take. She enjoyed volunteering at community centers and programs that focused on providing services for persons with mental illness.
She is survived by her father Andres Perez of Muskegon, MI and all her siblings: Andres Perez (Sheena) of Georgia, Nancy Perez-Senn (Kevin) of Portland, Erik Perez (Mariel) of Arizona and Erika Perez-Ellis ( Johnnie) of Michigan. She will be missed by her nephews Emanuel and Tomás Senn and her niece Anastasia Senn and by her many cousins, aunts and uncles and by her friends. She was preceded in death by her mother and grandmother. A memorial and interment will occur at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo later this year.
