- At 24, Dianne Gladstone, the meticulous young tax official, followed her romantic instincts. She would marry this fellow who had offered \emdash on a blind date no less \emdash a pricey dinner at Maxwell's Plum, in Manhattan's archetypal 1970's singles spot. A year later, she was a Mrs.
And as in her public life \emdash 37 years at the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance \emdash her instincts were right on the money. She and Herb Gladstone, a crane operator, skied, hit the Broadway shows, traveled. Each year they celebrated the holidays at the Queensboro Hill Jewish Center, where they were married, and then it was off to the Caribbean.
Even at home, she was, "organized, maybe too organized," Mr. Gladstone recalled. In their Forest Hills home she had tax files going back to when they had met, he said, recalling her fondness for her tax work as section chief in Tower Two, 86th floor.
Yet in her favorite photo, on the beach at Provincetown at sunset last Labor Day, Dianne Gladstone, at 55, looked as happy as Mr. Gladstone could ever remember, perhaps because her thoughts were far away from tax codes, the paper shredder and the job she treasured. She had decided to retire \emdash to their new house, near the water, on the north fork of Long Island. The moving date was next April.
