    Diane Flynn was born in New York and grew up in Connecticut and New Jersey. She came to Massachusetts to attend Boston College where she majored in Psychology. After graduation, she worked as an advertising salesperson for TeleRep, a national television rep firm, and later locally for WFXT-TV. Diane married Ned Flynn in 1988 and moved to Weston, Mass., where they have resided ever since.

    They have three children and a cat. Catherine is a junior in high school; Andrew is a freshman in high school; and Elizabeth is in seventh grade.

    Diane keeps busy volunteering in the schools and in her spare time loves to practice yoga. Ned is an entrepreneur. He is currently the owner of New England Flag & Banner, the oldest and largest maker of custom hand-sewn applique flags and banners. Although most well known for their championship banners for the Celtics and Bruins, they also make championship banners for other professional teams as well as colleges and universities across the country.

    Diane has been a member of the Board for eight years. She joined the Board because "it is such important work within an environment of very dedicated, interesting and caring people. The Friends is an impressive group with which I feel proud to be associated." Diane has held many positions over the years, including chairing the Great Chefs, Gala, Nominating and Holiday Hospitality Committees, working on the Tribute Book and is currently the executive vice-president. Diane and her two daughters also very much enjoy participating in the annual Friends' Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk team.
