Diana Mary Frances

August 16, 1942 – April 17, 2013

Diana passed away, peacefully, in Nanaimo with family by her side. She was predeceased by her mother, Ann; father, Maurice; brother, John; and son, David. She is lovingly remembered by her son, Darrell (Michelle) Jones and her daughter, Caroline (Chris) Burnley. Diana’s grandchildren Megan, Rachel, Jacob and Erin were a great joy to her. She was also a wonderful sister to Roy (Freda) Chartrand, Gerry (Brenda) Chartrand, Jean (Barrie) Mill and Linda (Josh) Van Hoof. Many nieces, nephews and friends will also miss her. Diana was a caregiver in all that she did and was happiest when doing for others. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend.
