Dianne E. Braden

August 15, 1953 — March 3, 2009

Dianne E. (Fabio) Braden age 55 of Lincoln passed away suddenly on Tuesday, March 3, 3009 at Emerson Hospital. She was the husband of John L. Braden of Lincoln.

Born in Boston on August 15, 1953 Dianne was the daughter of Margaret A. (Simeone) of Franklin and the late Faliero A. Fabio. Raised and educated in Dedham and a 1971 graduate of Dedham High School, Mrs. Braden then attended and graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in Marketing. She spent several years working in marketing for publishers including Encyclopedia Britannica and the Thomson Publishing Group.

In October of 1982 Dianne Fabio and John Braden were married at St. Susanna's Church in Dedham, and one year later they purchased the land in Lincoln on which they would build their dream home. Construction took place in 1986, and Dianne acted as the general contractor for the project, which shows the kind of drive and leadership ability she had. The Bradens moved into their Lincoln home on Valentine's Day 1987, five years to the day after John proposed to Dianne.

In 1992 the Braden family was blessed with their greatest gift, a lovely daughter who they named Julianne.. Mrs. Braden was a devoted wife and mother and Julie was her pride and joy. Dianne always loved to travel and did so frequently, including trips to Western Europe and much of Eastern Europe, as well as the Carribean, Central & South America, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, etc. One exciting trip with a 3-year-old Julianne began in Greece, where the Bradens rented a car, and drove through Turkey, finally taking ferries back through the Greek islands to the mainland.

Besides her husband and mother she is survived by her daughter Julianne, a junior at Lincoln-Sudbury High School and a brother Philip Fabio of Franklin.
