December 2, 1948 - October 19, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Diane Ford (née Ross), at the age of 73, on October 19, 2022, with her family by her side.
She leaves to celebrate her memory, her husband Edmund; daughters, Sandra (Allan) and Sheila (Edwin); and son Gary. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren, Hope (Shayne), Nick, Brandi (Lorenzo), Summer, and Kolby; and her great-granddaughter Layla.
Diane was a stay-at-home mom, raising her three kids, until she decided to go to work when they got a little older. She worked in the restaurant at Woolco, continuing after Walmart took over for many years, as a cashier.
In her retirement years, she took a few painting courses, enjoying it immensely. She painted many nature pictures, which were all added to her gallery wall at home.
Diane was a jack of all trades. She loved to build and do home renovations, always eager to help if anyone had a project to do.
Diane will always be remembered for her love of the outdoors. She loved to garden and had the prettiest yard on the block. She loved to camp as well, among her favourite places were West Hawk Lake and Birds Hill.
She and her family all went to Florida many times in the fall. She loved the sun and the heat.
Diane’s family would like to thank all the Doctors, Nurses, Health Care Aides, and staff who took care of her while in the St. Boniface Hospital.
According to her wishes, cremation has taken place and a private memorial service will be held. Diane's family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
