Marlborough – Dianne L. (Nix) Drummey, 61, of Marlborough, passed away at her home on Saturday, September 30, 2023. She was born in Framingham, MA, to the late Donald and Anne (Paige) Nix.
Dianne dedicated many years of her life to her career as a hairdresser, where she brought beauty to the lives of her clients. Her infectious laughter left a lasting impression on all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Dianne was a woman of empathy, determination, and incredible resourcefulness. She had a profound love for animals and often lent a helping hand to those in need. She fiercely advocated for her children and instilled in them the importance of self-worth, resilience, a strong work ethic, and community.
Dianne found joy in dancing—especially to the rhythms of live music—daisies, the beach, and camping with her family, and held a special fondness for Tinkerbell.
Dianne’s legacy lives on through her loving family. She is survived by her daughter, Jesseca A. Purdy, of Dedham, MA, her son, Jay T. Purdy Jr., of Haverhill, MA. She is also survived by her sister, Denise Stamm, and her nephews, Gregory Stamm and Alex Stamm.
She was predeceased by her brother, Donald Nix Jr.
In honoring Dianne’s wishes, her family will hold private services following her cremation.
We invite those who knew and loved Dianne to join in celebrating her life by sharing their memories and condolences on Friday Nov. 3, 2023, 6-9 pm in the Marlborough Moose Lodge, Fitchburg St., Marlborough, MA.
