Diane could be found any day of the week at any hour in her kitchen baking. It was a life long passion of hers and she always made sure that her family and friends always had their favourite cookie, pie, cake or bread. She was a care free spirit who always made you laugh with a joke and her infectious smile which could light up any room. She was the life of the party and always put the needs of others before her own, their happiness made her happy and for anyone who knew her you knew that her family was everything to her and they came first. She spent 25 years working in the dietary department at Legrow Health Center, retiring in 2013 to enjoy her time with her family. We were so fortunate to have loved and been loved in return by such a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend and we will miss her forever.
