Diane McChesney Kondak (1938-2014) Warren High School Class of 1956

Super sales girl.   Friends galore.  Apparently, going into the beer distribution business made more sense to be than becoming a nurse.

1956 Dragon yearbook

As you can see from this section of the 1983 Warren City Directory, Diane was married to Michael Kondak.  City Ice & Beverage, still in business, used to be located at 12 Market Street.  Kondak Distributors, no longer in business, was located at 918 4th Avenue, formerly the location of the Soda & Mineral Water Company.  Outside of marriage, I have no idea what other connections these two businesses had.

In the 1967 Warren City Directory, Michael and Diane Kondak are listed as living at 118 North Irvine Street.  Diane's parents, Richard D. and Blanche McChesney, lived on the 2nd floor.

In the 1983 Warren City Directory, Michale and Diane are listed at 1464 Conewango Avenue Extension.

Helen Barlow is listed at 118 North Irvine.

Richard D. and Carolyn E. McChesney reside at 110 Willoughby Avenue.

Elvis had the #1 song when the class of '56 graduated.
