She was an avid gardener and could often be seen admiring her flowers from the front step of her house on Topsail Road. She had a true passion for sewing and crafts to the delight of many and truly enjoyed the children's crafts she prepared once the grandchildren came along. While Diane volunteered with many organizations over the years, her greatest accomplishment in her final years were her six grandchildren. She was an amazing "Nanny" who will be sadly missed by them. She left them with incredible memories of baking cookies, pancake nights, Christmas Eve stories, and Easter egg hunts. Never to be forgotten by them are the many times she would tell their parents that it was a "Nanny's"prerogative to spoil her grandchildren. Diane will be missed by a large circle of friends who shared many laughs, joys and tears with her. Her many card groups will remember how she loved the game of bridge and 120s. Her grandchildren often passed many an afternoon playing a game of crib or scat with Nanny.
One thing that was evident in Diane's life was not only her commitment to her long-time friends but their commitment to her. Words cannot express our sincere thanks for the countless number of hospital and home visits, meals, phone calls, and true acts of support for the family throughout Diane's illness. A special thanks to her cousin and friend, Kay Connors and to the many other close friends of Diane and Bob's that have been with them throughout this journey. The family would also like to thank her caregivers, Darlene and Stacey and the many other doctors and nurses who cared for her these past few years.

When I reach that last big shoal
Where the ground
swells break asunder,
Where the wild sands
roll to the surge's toll
Let me be a man and take it
When my dory fails to make it.
Take me back to
that snug green cove
Where the seas roll up
their thunder
There let me rest in
the Earth's cool breast
Where the stars shine
out their wonder
And the seas roll up their thunder.
-Otto P. Kelland

MERCER, Gordon Wayne
Born in Bell Island, Newfoundland in 1949, Wayne moved to Ontario in 1966 and then returned to Newfoundland in 2017 to spend his last months enjoying family and a little piece of the rock. To add a little bit of history to Wayne's path in life, he was told by his cousin, Bruce, that the house originally purchased by Wayne's father in the early 60's, was now up for sale in Spaniard's Bay. The renovated house, which was a small cabin, became home for Wayne.
While living in Sudbury, Wayne met the love of his life, Linda Bradley, and they were married for 40 years and spent most of their married lives in Levack. She passed away on December 5th, 2015 and left a void in many hearts. Wayne worked his entire life career at Falconbridge Inc. When he wasn't working, he could be found on Manitoulin Island on his boat or fishing on one of Sudbury's beautiful lakes with his friends, family and specially his Dad.
Wayne is survived by his three sisters; Marilyn of Hornepayne, Brenda from Ottawa and Judy from Carleton Place, as well as his special brother-in-law Maurice Chenier as well as good friend Wally Mercer. He is a loving uncle to many nieces and nephews. He will be sadly missed by his 2 little fur-babies, Phoebe and Bella.

There will be no funeral arrangements, however, an intimate family service is planned on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at his residence.

Your Mother is always with you, She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, She's the smell of certain foods you remember, Flowers you pick and perfume that she wore. She's the cool hand on your brow when you're not feeling well, She's your breath in the air on a cold winter's day, She's the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, The colors of a rainbow, She is Christmas morning. She's the place you came from, your first home, And she's the map you follow with every step you take, She's your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, But nothing on earth can seperate you, Not time, not space ... not even death!

"When I come to the end of the day,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared -
Miss me, but let me go."
