Diana Lynn Pardue had her sunrise on September 7, 1951, in Wetaskiwin, AB, and her sunset on March 28, 2023, in Penticton, BC, at 10 am.
She was the world’s best angel ever. Warm, kind, gentle, loving, loyal, trusting dedicated, and hardworking. She spent her entire life taking care of and helping others. Other people’s needs were always more important than her own... always.
She was a long-term Care Aide for 35 years in Red Deer, AB, Kelowna, BC, and Victoria, BC. Always putting others first... always. If you were a relative, a friend, or a client, you instantly knew how lucky you were. Diane was a real true companion however she was involved in your life.
Diane was very strong-willed by nature and always faced each and every one of her diagnoses. She was fiercely protective of her family. She has valiantly fought a never-ending 5-year battle with many cancers.
With great optimism, courage, conviction, and dignity, she displayed an unbelievable will to live on 5 more years. Finally, we all had to accept that this was just not to be.
Her time has now come and hopefully, she will move on to peace, lots of peace. The peace that she has so desperately been seeking for the last 5 years. Farewell to THE MOST WONDERFUL AND GRACIOUS LADY EVER!!!
Diane had just recently celebrated her 52nd Wedding Anniversary on February 20, 2023.
