Tribute

Diane J. Tocco (nee Klatt) passed away May 30, 2022 at the age of 87. Daughter of the late Otto and Emily (nee Jaron) Klatt. Cherished mother of Toni Tocco-Stone and Domiano Tocco. Beloved grandmother of six and great-grandmother of seven. Adored sister to the late Donna Gamalski.

Diane was known for her independence and strength. As a mother she was kind and caring but nonetheless determined. She co-owned Pointe Bar-b-que in Detroit, a local restaurant for nearly twenty years. Later, she independently owned the Pointe Bar-b-que in Madison Heights. They were affectionately known as Mr. and Mrs. Rib. They opened their first location in 1960's and the second shortly after. Diane also owned Pointe Treat, an ice cream and deli that she ran solely on her own for many years. After retirement from the restaurant industry, Diane moved to Las Vegas and opened an antique shop in the 1980's. Later on in life, Diane was still making huge waves. She taught a class on how to play mahjong to local women in Michigan and even became a make up artist at Macy's and Crowley's. Diane's love for art also expanded into her becoming a portrait painter, she loved horse back riding, traveling and spending her time with her two Malteses Lily and Gus. She always gathered her family for holidays and cooked for them as a way of bringing them together.

Diane will be greatly missed by many family members and friends.
