Diana Raynor

November 6, 1947 - January 6, 2017


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Diana.  She is survived by her husband of fifty-one years, Bob, daughters Brenda (Ian) and Sheri (Lawrence), grandchildren Trent, Laura and John, brother  Doug (Isabel) and sister Leona (Wayne).   She was predeceased by her parents, Leonard and Dorothy Cleough.

Diana will be remembered by her many wonderful friends.  She was an extremely social person, and loved any kind of gathering where she could be around people.    In her daily life it was not unusual for her to approach a stranger just to say hello and see how their day was going.  She looked forward to Friday coffee with her friends, and her seniors’ luncheons.  She loved when company would drop by, and the coffee and tea were always on.   In recent years she volunteered her time for the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle.  She loved to help, and enjoyed seeing all of the people and greeting them with a smile. 

The simple pleasures in life meant a lot to Diana.  She loved her pets, a drive in the convertible and lilacs.  We’ll always remember  how much she loved her scratch and win tickets, and she spent many happy hours working on those.

Diana endured some difficult health challenges in her life, but faced adversity with courage and grace.  Although she sometimes grew frustrated, it was nothing short of amazing how well she did with the limitations that were placed on her.

The family would like to thank the staff at Vancouver General Hospital for their excellent and compassionate care of Diana, as well as Cowichan District Hospital for getting her quickly to Vancouver to receive the care she needed.

A Celebration of Diana’s Life will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 1:00 PM at HW Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan, BC.
