After 20 years of being partners, Diane and Clive were finally married in 2011. They enjoyed traveling to Ontario where Diane enjoyed visits with Clive’s large family of brothers, sisters, their spouses, many nieces and nephews, the grandkids and of course her stepsons, Steven (Sonia), James (Debbie).

Due to the COVID-19 isolation and the uncertainty of when it will be over, a Celebration of Life is tentatively scheduled for August 2020. Attempts will be made to confirm a date with as much notice as we can, so those traveling distances can make plans. Diane will be interred at the Legion Cemetery after the Celebration of her wonderful life.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #24, 803 Cranbrook St N. Cranbrook, B.C. V1C 3S2 in Diane’s honour.
