As a mother and grandmother, Diane modelled love, joy, and patience for all who knew her. In her long career in education, she touched so many lives in Riverview. The playschool she operated for years meant the house was always full of little voices in happy, busy tones. Diane’s laughter and energy made every family get-together brighter. She was an outgoing and talkative person who always seemed to run into someone she knew whenever she was out. Diane belonged to many wonderful organizations over the years, from the Lansdowne Ladies to the Ladies’ Society to the Kinettes to Meals on Wheels. Hers was a life well-lived, and we are all richer for having known her.
Our thanks to all the wonderful, caring staff at Lakeview Manor who gave superlative care to our mother for so many important years.
