In Memory of Diana Nagy

Diana NagyIt is with tremendous sadness that we share the loss of Diana Nagy, who passed away recently after a brave battle against glioblastoma. Diana was with Promega for more than 21 years, and made significant contributions in her role as Contracts Manager for the Genetic Identity business at Promega. One of her favorite parts of her job was being the curator of Forensic Connect. She loved finding fascinating stories of real world cases to post on Forensic Connect, and took great pride in sharing news of the latest advances in forensic science on the site.

Away from work, she loved to cook for her husband Randy—they celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary in 2020. She was a voracious reader, a highly talented seamstress, and a loving dog mom to her Chihuahua’s, Bella and Buster. Her daughter, Lindsay and she were quite close, and they loved their annual Ferris Bueller day away from their jobs together. They spent the past few months of Diana’s life making memories together, sharing laughs while they enjoyed doing the things Diana most loved.

Diana will be missed by everyone on the Genetic Identity team. She always had a smile for whomever needed one. Her kindness, sense of humor, and friendship were true gifts to all who had the good fortune to know her.

Because Forensic Connect was inimitably Diana’s endeavor, we have decided to close the site down. If you wish to keep up with the latest in DNA forensics, you may wish to subscribe to ISHInews blog or the ISHI report. You can learn more at
