Diane passed away peacefully on April 18th, 2023 at the age of 69, surrounded by family at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence. She will be sadly missed by her children, Philippe, Emilie (Jeff) and Daniel (Laurie), her grandson, Theo, as well as her partner, Jean-Guy, and her many other relatives and friends.
She will be fondly remembered by her affectionate and generous nature, as well as her love to dance, to cook, and host elaborate family dinners.
The family is very grateful for the genuine care, kindness and support provided by the staff and volunteers at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence. Many sincere thanks to all who provided assistance and support in times when it was most needed.
We will gather to celebrate her life on Sunday, April 23, 2023 from 1-5 p.m. at Voluntas Funeral Home, 4695 St-Jean Blvd., Dollard-des-Ormeaux, H9H 2A7.
For those willing, donations in her memory to the Douglas Foundation for Mental Health Research and Care would be greatly appreciated.

Dearest Emilie, John and I wanted to let you know how sad we are to hear about your mom’s passing. She was much too young and our hearts go out to you because you are also too young to lose your mother. We hope you can take solace in the fact that she witnessed seeing you becoming a wonderful young woman, your beautiful wedding, and that she’s experienced the love and magic of grandmotherhood. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts as you grieve the loss of a most beloved mom.

We remember meeting Diane on the sidelines of the soccer pitch when Phil and our son were youngsters. She was very warm,quick to smile. Over the years we would occasionally see each other and catch up on each other’s news. She always spoke of her children with such love. We wish to offer our heartfelt sympathy to you on the loss of Diane and wish you comfort and peace in your memories of your beloved Mother.
