    Dear Bill, Kyle and Kelly, so very sorry for your loss. i think it must be over 40 years since Dianne came into our lives back in North York. Such a kind and generous lady and on behalf of my sisters i know we’re all especially grateful for the many years Dianne visited our mother when she was in care homes with dementia. Dianne was a very special lady. Rowan, Hilary, and Elizabeth Bartlett

    I had the opportunity of working with Dianne. She was a pleasant and positive person and I was fortunate to have known her.

    I pray that God will give her family

    I got to know Dianne about 8 years ago when I sold fundraising tickets for Tecumseth Pines. She made this “job” a joy as I was always invited into her home for a little chat. Here I found a wonderful, happy, empathetic lady who I can call a true friend. Along with others who know Dianne, I too will miss her. Bill, and family, remember her with fond memories, she would want that.
