Diane J. (Cote) Auger, 72, longtime Auburn resident, passed away on Tuesday September 22, 2020, with her loving family by her side.

Born and raised in Woonsocket, RI, Diane was one of two children born to the late Leo and Jeannine (Durand) Cote. She received her B.S. in Psychology from Worcester State University, then achieved her M.S. degree in Education from Wheelock College. Diane had a lengthy career in early childhood education, most recently working as teacher and administrator at Worcester Head Start for over twenty years. She had previously worked at Pakachoag Acres Daycare Center of Auburn, My Friend’s Place Day Care Center and Elm Park Center for Early Childhood Education, both in Worcester. She will be remembered as a passionate and dedicated teacher.

She was a lifelong volunteer at several local organizations, including Auburn Senior Center’s Meals on Wheels Program and Auburn Public Schools PTO. She was a Troop Leader for Campfire Girls of Worcester, and Camp Counselor at Marion’s Camp in Sutton.

Diane married the love of her life, Roger N. Auger, on May 25, 1968 and the pair settled in Auburn to raise their family. In her free time, she enjoyed gardening, photography, scrapbooking, and travelling. Above all, Diane’s family was her world.

Along with her beloved husband, Roger, Diane is survived by her daughters: Laurie Hayes and her husband Brian, of Oxford; Lisa Buron and her husband Mark, of North Attleboro; Amy Miller and her husband David, of Montgomery, OH; and Holly Carpenter and her husband Luke, of Worcester. She is also survived by seven grandchildren: Erin and Elizabeth Buron, of North Attleboro, Audrey and Natalie Hayes, of Oxford, Colton and Liam Carpenter, of Worcester, and Alex Miller, of Montgomery, OH; her twin brother, Robert Cote, of Westerly, RI; as well as many nieces, nephews, and close friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with Diane’s family between 4:00 and 6:00 PM on Monday, October 5, 2020 at the BRITTON-WALLACE FUNERAL HOME, 91 Central Street, Auburn, MA.

I am so sad to hear of Diane's passing. She was the best boss one could ask for. I worked with her for 16 years and she was always so helpful and supportive. I wish I could have come to the visitation to share my condolences but we are quarantined. Rest in Peace Diane💜

I was so sad to read about Diane. I spent two years as a fellow classmate in our Wheelock College Early Childhood MS program, and I remember Diane's easy smile, friendly demeanor and helpful contributions to our classwork. I can still hear her voice, and the photograph included here is just the way I remember Diane. My deepest condolences and prayers to all of you.

So very sorry to read of Diane’s passing. She was such a special lady to us all at the Senior Center meals. Heartfelt condolences to Roger and the family.

We both have fond memories of diane. One Christmas comes to mind, she in lieu of Christmas cards, baked individual breads and put them in neighbors mailboxes, was a very thoughtful gesture. I have my own separate memory. When I used to babysit you girls, she was always so kind, always checking with me first to make sure the time she was coming home was alright with me. She was a very kind woman and wonderful neighbor. She will be missed.
