My condolences to Jack and the family.
I had the pleasure of curling with Diane in the Wednesday Night Ladies league, Diane was our Skip. Loved curling with Diane she was always positive and encouraging. Diane always looked great, no matter what she wore she looked fantastic.
Loved Diane’s stories of when she worked at Sweet 16 and the Bay, she loved fashion.
I cherish the memories of all the fun we had at bonspiels on and off the ice. Diane had all these ideas of what we could dress up as, she loved to dress up and participate in all the fun activities.
Forever in my thoughts

Janet and I were blessed to share a faith journey with Diane where we witnessed her generous and giving spirit, her willingness to help out and her joyful service in the choir, altar guild, and wherever else someone needed a hand. We shared some time curling with Diane and Jack where we saw her patience, her positivity and her volunteering spirit. Diane was a loving, generous, faithful woman who was a blessing to many along the way. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her but especially by her loving family that was the center of her world. Diane passed as she lived, with grace and dignity and we are all richer and better for having known her. May God's gracious love surround all who are mourning today but please know that she is at peace and in the arms of the God who loved her since birth. Our prayers are for Jack and the family at this time! The Lord is her shepherd - and Diane is now at peace. Pastor Bob, Janet and Laura Goos
