Diane is survived by her husband of 41 years William Colish, her son Daniel (Faith), her daughter Stefanie (Harry) and three grandchildren.  Diane also leaves her brother Eric (Kirsten) and their family as well as many other loving cousins, extended family and dear friends.  

Diane grew up in Larchmont, NY and earned her B.A. with honors at the University of Pennsylvania.  She graduated in 1972 from New York University Law School and became an associate with the law firm of Willkie, Farr and Gallagher in New York City.  Diane became counsel with Playtex in 1977 and developed a specialty in national and international trademark law and followed Playtex through numerous corporate merges.  Diane retired from Hanes Brands in 2006 to join us at Ohlandt, Greeley, Ruggiero and Perle as “Of Counsel”.

Diane was an exemplar of the modern professional woman who seamlessly combined family, career, friends and community with great aplomb.  

Diane and her family lived in Harrison, New York where she was active in school, community, and religious organizations.  Struck down before her time, her passing will leave a deep void for her family, friends, her legal associates, and the community.  Diane will be greatly missed by all of us who loved and admired her.
