April 23, 1944 – September 16, 2012
It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the great loss of our cherished mom, nana, sister and friend. As mom always wanted, she was lovingly surrounded and embraced by her family as she passed.
As mom repeatedly did throughout her life, she stubbornly refused to allow the challenges that came with her diagnosis to determine the quality of her life.
Diane is survived and will be dearly missed by children Liane, Laurie, Donnie and Viviana. Grandchildren; Patrick, Dane, Bradley, Melissa and Braydon. Great-granddaugter Dylan. Sisters, Jeanette(Bobby and Deborah) and Jill/Paul(Johnnie and Clayton).
Diane loyally served as the secretary at North Island Glass for over 25 years.
A big thank you to everyone who was a part of the great care that mom received; Dr. Carswell, all the doctors and nurses at Campbell River Hospital, Home Care and her amazing friends! A gathering of family and friends in celebration of her life will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 11:00a.m. at the Elk Falls Crematorium and Memorial Cemetary, located on Highway 28 on General Hill. Following will be a reception at Donnie’s home, 2480 Spring Road, Campbell River. For those wishing, flowers gratefully accepted or donations may be made in Diane’s memory to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.
