Tribute

Hutton-Potts, Diana Elizabeth (nee Festing)
December 15, 1916 to May 29, 2009

Predeceased by her father Lieutenant-Colonel Hubert Wogan Festing, mother Dorothy Elizabeth Festing (nee Keen), sister Pamela Mary Bush (nee Festing) and husband George Ronald Hutton-Potts.
Survived by her daughter Joanna Daphne (Rusty)Hammond (nee Hutton-Potts), son Marcus Yuan Hutton-Potts, sister Jacqueline Coleman (nee Festing), granddaughter Jennifer Anne Hammond, grandson James Edward Hammond, Claire XXXX (nee Bush) and Caroline Bush, along with numerous other relatives.
Diana was born in Bombay, India while her father was stationed there with the British Army during World War I. After her father was killed in battle in March 1918 her mother (then pregnant with Jacquie) single-handedly took both 2-year old Diana and her 3-year old sister Pamela back to England going behind enemy lines through France to reach Calais where they caught a boat for England.
Diana grew up and was education in England. In her early 20’s she and a cousin emigrated to Canada where she was to meet her future husband (George Hutton-Potts). They were married in Blaine, Washington on February 27, 1947.
After living for a while in Courtenay and Duncan they moved to Saltspring Island where Joanna was born June 4, 1949, and a little more than a year later, on September 20, 1950 brother Marcus was born.
In the spring of 1951 George decided that living on a light station would be the idea place to raise children. The family moved to Merry Island Light Station were they were to spend the next 15 years. After George resigned from the Light Station service the family returned to Duncan.
They started a very successful quick printing business. Then, after a number of years they retired, purchased the house where Diana resided until her passing.
A celebration of Diana’s life will be held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church, 5800 Church Road, Duncan, BC, on Saturday, June 6, 2009 at 1:30 pm. Following the service a reception will be held at the Moose Hall, 2244 Moose Road.
Floral arrangements may be sent to St. Peter’s Anglican Church, those wishing to do so may make a donation in Diana’s name to the SPCA (her favourite charity). Online condolences may be made at www.hwwallacecbc.com
