Licensed Real Estate Agent in:


Dianna Lynn Christinat – January 13, 1955 – March 20, 2020

Written by Tom McGowan- Team member with Elyse Harney Real Estate

Dianna Christinat will always be a part of Elyse Harney Real Estate.
She was an integral part of the company from its early days.
She was always a team player and treated everyone with kindness and respect.
She knew her business and was always available to those who had questions and interest in real estate
and most anything else for that matter.
Through her involvement with real estate, her church and the communities in which she worked in she
touched many lives, and those lives touched other lives and so on and so on until her presence was and
will always be felt throughout the Tri-State area.
She waged a strong battle and was a fine example of how strong the human spirit can be.
She had a love of fly fishing and had a strong passion for her volunteer work with CT Casting for
Recovery Program.
She was always there for those who needed a kind word or encouragement.
I remember a time when I was in a dark place after retiring from a previous career and Dianna said:
“have you ever thought about real estate”? I said no and she strongly said: “well you should think about
She was a no-nonsense lady and proceeded to tell me about the business. I will be forever grateful to
Dianna for giving me that strong nudge. She somehow knew more about me than I did.
Dianna has not left us, she is just transformed. We just have to be still and at peace and like Jesus she
will come and sit awhile beside us until the day we go and sit by her.

She leaves behind her loving husband Steve, her son Frank, his wife Meaghan and grandson Eli and her
son Edward and his wife Patricia and granddaughter Cora who were all the loves of her life.
A memorial service to celebrate Dianna will be planned at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, her family requests donations are made to Casting for Recovery CT Program 109 East
Oak Street, Ste.1G, Bozeman, Mt 59715 or online castingforrecovery.org/ct/.
