Diane Stott Briggs, 87 of Providence passed away peacefully August 5, 2016 surrounded by her loved ones. She was the wife of the late Charles W. Briggs Jr.

Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Charles H. and Vera (Wallace) Stott. She was a graduate of The Lincoln School in Providence, and Bucknell University in PA. Prior to her marriage to Charles, she worked as a stewardess for American Airlines.

She was also a member of Central Congregational Church for over 50 years, and a long time soprano in the church choir.
