Diana Alice Karelas Karampour

Of Framingham, MA and formerly of Waltham, MA, after a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer,
passed away peacefully on Friday March 26.

She is survived by her son, whom she adored, Alexander of Framingham. Also survived by her brother Arthur Karelas of Framingham, formerly of Waltham and her brother James Karelas of Woburn, formerly of Waltham.
Diana lived for her family.

She loved us and was always there for us. Her happiest moments were when she cooked holiday meals for family and friends. She was especially close to her cousin John Pergantis of Brookline and his wife Marylynn, and her sister-in-law Doreen Karelas of Framingham, formerly of Newton. Diana loved her many cousins: Tucky, Billy, Steven, Joey, Peggy, David, Richard, Ernie, Tony, George, Andrew, and nieces Angel, Nicole, Stacy,
Jessica, and her nephew Jimmy.

She loved her many friends and they loved her. If anyone said to her, I love you. She always responded, “I love you more.” But her best and most cherished friend of 47 years, Cynthia Priest Tamburro of Weston, formerly of Waltham, had a special place in her heart.

Diana fostered two young boys who were in dire need and gave them a safe loving home. She also rescued 4 dogs and gave them wonderful care.

Diana was very proud of her Greek heritage and she felt at home when she traveled to Greece years ago with her beloved mother Alice Karelas.

When we think of Diana, we Remember her beautiful singing, dancing and being the life of the party.
She will be very missed by all the people who had the blessing of knowing.

For the safety of those we love and care about during this difficult time; and for those who wish to pay their respects to Diana and her family can do so in accordance with CDC, Federal, State and Local guidelines during Visiting Hours in the Mary Catherine Chapel of Brasco & Sons Memorial, 773 Moody Street WALTHAM on Friday April 2nd from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. A Funeral Service in celebration of Diana's life will follow at 6:30 p.m. Due to the on-going pandemic, we ask that friends please be mindful and respectful of current limitations in regard to social gatherings.

For those who wish to pay their final respects, but are unable to attend, please be sure to sign the guestbook at

Those who cannot be present may view a livestream of the service starting on Friday, April 2nd at 6:00 pm by going to

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Diana at Jordan’s for many years. She made every day fun. I enjoyed her stories of all her family. She loved you dearly and the holidays were her favorite. Alexander, you were everything to her. I pray for the love and peace of God to be your comfort and for her memory to bring you joy.
In deepest sympathy,
Sandy Burke
