Diana Hildebrandt

June 25, 1961 - July 30, 2014


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Diana on July 30, 2014 at
Aberdeen Hospital in Victoria, due to a Cardiac arrest. Diana was born on June 25, 1961
in Duncan BC to Noreen and Raymond Bujold. She graduated from Cowichan Secondary School
in 1979, and was married to James (Kelly) Hildebrandt in 1981. The Loving mother of Michael (Tannis) and Darren (Kim), and grandmother of Paisley and Kaylee. She is also survived by her mother Noreen,
brothers Glen (Debbie) and Mark (Louise), sister Yvonne, nephews Darryl and Kevin, nieces Sara, Christina, Chelsey, and Jessica. She was predeceased by her father Raymond. She grew up in Duncan, then moved to Lake Cowichan where she raised her 2 boys and worked various different jobs. She enjoyed socializing with her family and friends, spending time out in the boat on the lake waterskiing, and camping. She loved to travel and see new and exciting places. She was an amazing mother and loved spending time with her boys most of all.
She was diagnosed with myotonic dystrophy in her 30's, and it progressively made her mobility more difficult until she required a wheelchair and permanent hospitalization in 2012. Despite her difficulties with her disability, she always remained a very positive person and never complained about her circumstances. She was the type of person who would always brighten your day, and was loved and admired by all who knew her. She loved her family immensely, and made many good friends over the years that she treated as family. She will always be missed and remembered. The family would like to thank the amazing staff at Aberdeen who cared for her over the past 2.5 years. A graveside memorial will be held at Mountain View Cemetery in Duncan on Friday, August 8th at 2:00 pm. Celebration of life to follow. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Diana's honor can be made to Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

From: patti miller
Relation: i was one of her nurses and also a friend.

Diana was like a family member to many of us who worked with her. She was always friendly and funny and spoke frequently about her boys and their familys with love and affection. They where the light in her life! I miss her.

From: Vera Read
Relation: school,worked with her sister

I was so sad & shocked to her the news. I remember Diana in school as always laughing, smiling & being a bit goofy. I know she had major health issues over the years & now she is at peace and not in pain. Condolences to all of her family.

From: Dianne Martin
Relation: Long time family friend.

It is with great sadness that I write these words. Diana has been like a sister since I met her more than 35 years ago. We both had two boys and that drew us closer together. Diana was a terrific mother and nothing made her prouder than her two wonderful boys and their families! She always had wonderful stories to share – and her face showed her love and pride in each of them. Although we didn’t get to see each other as often as we would have liked, we did get together a couple of times each year and those visits will always hold a special place in my heart. My heartfelt condolences to all her family.

From: Diane and Wilf Zeck
Relation: Diana's son Mike married a very good friend to our family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very sad and difficult time. It is never easy to lose someone close to you. May you find the peace needed to heal and as you remember your precious mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, and aunt often, she will ever be a part of you. Best wishes.
