Dr. Diane I. Dubois-Hall, D.O.

Dr. Diane I. Dubois-Hall, D.O., a resident of Burrillville, R.I., passed away on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at Miriam Hospital.

Surrounded by loved ones, she peacefully departed after a lifelong struggle with complications from Crohn’s Disease. She fought strongly for many years and remained strong until the end.

Born on July 14, 1958, Diane was the life companion of husband, Dr. Eric Hall, Ph.D. She is survived by her loving and supportive parents, Raymond and Helen Dubois; children, Janis Roy, M.A. and Dr. Matthew Hall, D.O.; and siblings, Dr. David Dubois D.O. and Janice Dubois, M.A., and chosen sister, Mimi Platek.

In addition to her dedication to her family, Diane selflessly served others through her profession as a family practice physician for 28 years. She not only was a doctor but a friend to her patients. Diane enjoyed life by sitting in the sun, going to the beach, fishing with her husband, and spending time with her kids and beloved cats and golden retrievers. Despite her chronic illness, Diane remained full of hope, humor, and compassion. Her true joys were found in supporting her children in their love of hockey, performing arts, science, and medicine.

Her funeral will be held on Wednesday, August 28, with a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Agatha’s Church, 34 Joffre Ave., Woonsocket. Visitation hours are Tuesday, August 27, at the Kubaska Funeral Home, 33 Harris Ave. Woonsocket, from 5 to 8 p.m. Burial will be private.
