She made her career in Human Resources and Development, re-locating for various opportunities throughout Canada. Dianne loved her girls and was delighted to spend time with her grandchildren. She was passionate about animal welfare, even volunteering as an investigator for the SPCA. She fostered and adopted over a dozen dogs and cats giving elderly and neglected animals the love and care they deserved. She was an excellent cook and baker, and published a cook book that she dedicated to her children and grandchildren.

Dearest Mr. Nice and family, I would like to express my condolences for the loss of Dianne. She was a wonderful lady. The news saddened me and I began to think of memories we had together in Ottawa at your old house and when I came for a visit out east. During that visit I got to get to know Dianne better in my adult years vs the teenager I was in Ottawa. I loved my time playing bingo and visiting thrift shops with Dianne. She was so warm and loving. I will always remember her. My heart was very heavy when I heard Dianne passed. My thoughts continue to be with each of you. Sending you lots of love at this difficult time.

Dear Bob and Family:

My sincere sympathy to you all on the loss of Dianne.

I had the pleasure of working with Dianne at Syncrude in Fort McMurray.

I was absolutely thrilled when she contacted me on Facebook.

My sister's and I read the book that she had written! She was simply, awesome, kind and wonderful! I am so very happy that I was in her journey here on earth!

I am so very sorry that she took ill and was unable to make another trip to Cape Breton.

Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

May all the very wonderful memories that you all have of Dianne help you all in the difficult days ahead.

God love and bless you all and keep you all always in His care.

Hugs & prayers
Valerie Ann xoxo
