Diana L. Prowell

April 8, 1973 — May 9, 2023

Diana L. Prowell, 50, of Shermans Dale, PA passed away the morning of Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at home, surrounded by her loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born April 8, 1973, in Saint Marys, PA to Suzann and Joseph Meyer, who survive. She is also survived by two brothers, Brian Meyer of Erie, PA (Margie) and Wesley Meyer of Saint Marys, PA (Shelli).

On September 30, 2000, she married the love of her life, Michael S. Prowell. Together, they had two children, Kylee Prowell and Haley Prowell, both at home. She was blessed with two additional stepdaughters, Danielle Prowell and Taylor Prowell, both of Shermans Dale, PA.

Diana, or DeeDee, as many knew her, was a member of St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in New Bloomfield, PA, loved the outdoors, hiking, boating, and swimming, all these done with her girls and husband by her side. She was a graduate of Elk County Catholic High School, Saint Marys, PA, class of 1991, and received her BS in Respiratory Therapy from Gannon University in Erie, PA. DeeDee held many certifications in the respiratory / pulmonary medical field. She had been the Respiratory / Pulmonary Diagnostics Supervisor at Penn State Health Hampden Medical Center, and was the Cardio-Pulmonary director at Penn State Holy Spirit, before stepping away from her work duties.

She is survived by 4 grandchildren, Grayson, and Braelyn (Danielle) and Tristin and Haven (Taylor); nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and friends. Diana was blessed beyond measure with a beautiful, devoted, and loving family who supported her throughout her fight. Her nephew, Shea, will continue to fight to find a cure through his cancer research. DeeDee is preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents, Arnold and Laura Wolfe, and Albert and Helen Meyer, all of Saint Marys.
