    My deepest sympathies on Diana's passing. I am a member of Holy Apostles Parish and met Diana through church. I also frequent the Tantallon Library so I would often see her there as well. Diana was one of those people who instantly brought a sense of calmness and centeredness wherever she went. Although I did not know her very well, I appreciated every conversation I had with her. My thoughts and prayers are with all of during this time of grief.

    Diana was such a spiritual inspiration to me. Although she stated she was out of her comfort zone when speaking publicly - she has been, and her work will continue to, a true leader in our Holy Apostles Parish community. Sincere condolences to the family - Valda Walsh

    Gordon, Daniel and David: We originally met years ago at the rink. Then as life happened we saw Diana in the community - the library and church. She was ALWAYS pleasant and made the world a better place by being in it. Her smile, laughter and person will be greatly missed but never forgotten. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    To Gordon, Daniel, and David. I will always smile when I think of Diana because that is how I always found her when I saw her...with that beautiful smile on her face. She had an infectious laugh that would always make you feel better no matter the circumstance. May she join in a choir of angels praising The Lord forever! Pam and Darrell Jessome

    Diana was a wonderful lady and very spiritual person. She quietly contributed a lot to the spiritual life of Holy Apostles Parish. She was also a person who was joyful, personable and easy to get to know. She showed us great fortitude in dealing with her recent illness. She will be greatly missed. May she rest in eternal peace now. Carey and Anne McFeters

    Jim and I really got to know Diana on our Church trip to Italy. During the pandemic she was always there at noon on Thursdays doing a inspirational reading. She was so easy to get to know and so kind. Our condolences go out to her husband Gordon, her sons and her extended family. She can talk with Father Roberto all the time now. Rest in Eternal Peace with our Saviour.
