Death Notice

On 19 March 2020 at home surrounded by her loving family, Diane passed away after a courageous battle. Diane was the most dearly loved wife and best friend of Ian; treasured and cherished mother and mother-in-law of Sarah & Nigel, Victoria & Nalaka, Juliet & Logan and Emma & Matt. Much loved Nana, Gran, Grandma and Granny of Hayley, Kayla, Roshan, Pravin, Amelia, Elliot, Zachary and Fletcher. Diane's kindness and care for others touched so many people. She was a very special person who opened her heart easily to others. As we enter more challenging times, may we honour her legacy by taking care of each other and our community. Diane's family wish to express their sincere thanks to all who have loved and cared for her. While a celebration of her life is not possible at this time, we encourage you to leave your special reflections of Diane on her tribute page at www.tributes.co.nz. Messages can also be sent c/- PO Box 723, Paraparaumu. You are very welcome to donate to the Mary Potter Community Hospice – Kâpiti at https://marypotter.org.nz/support-us/donations/, rather than sending flowers. A celebration of Diane's life will be planned for a later date. For now, as a way of remembering together, Diane's family would love if you would join us, from far and wide, in a universal toast to our dear Diane at 6.00pm on Thursday 26 March.
