Diane was a very special gift to everyone that met her.

She walked her days with Jesus at her side and would often say we are here to serve not be served.

She devoted all her days to her family, friends and neighbours She worked hard her whole life and always did so with a joyful heart. She has a grade six education and after that was hired out to work on farms.

She would aid in raising children, house chores, field work, anything that needed to be done- she was there and ready with a smile.

Diane and John lived a beautiful marriage of 57 years. They were so devoted to each other and their combined unconditional love enriched our lives all so very much. We are so grateful for all that they taught us with Faith, Hope and Love. She was a gift to anyone who met her. We Love You.

Arrangements with Low and Low Funeral Home, Uxbridge. A Catholic Mass will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 70 Toronto Street North, Uxbridge at 11a.m. Immediately following the service, Diane will be laid to rest at the Sacred Heart Cemetery. The family invites you to join them at the legion following the burial for refreshments and fellowship.
