Lori ParentThinking about her family at this sorrowful time. I worked with Diane at London Headquarter for a lot of years before she retired. She was such a wonderful, funny, kind-hearted friend. Lori Parent
Bev NotleyDiane, my heart goes out to your children and grandchildren. I know you had a close relationship with them and they will miss you desperately. I have warm memories of family gettogethers - back to Christmas Eve some 70+ years ago!, and to our most recent lunch with Allen, Marlis, you and me. I will miss you, Bev (Cousin)
Wayne IsbesterOn behalf of the London RCMP Veterans we extend our deepest sympathy to Diane's Family. Diane joined the Vets after her retirement from the RCMP and will be greatly missed by all. Wayne Isbester President London RCMP Veterans Association
Hap ArmstrongMy condolences to Diane's family. Diane was my Secretary, more executive assistant, during my time as Commanding Officer of "O" Division and I relied on her a great deal. I think my wife Donna summed up Diane best when asked at my retirement what she would miss the most and like to take with her. Without hesitation Donna replied, "Diane". That sums up what Donna and I thought of Diane. She was special.
