DIANA STOTT It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Diana Stott on August 21, 2017 with her family by her side. Diana will be lovingly remembered by her husband Thomas Stott; children, Roberta (Richard) and Randy (Carmela); grandchildren, Samantha (Dylan), Ryan, David, Emma, Morison, Michael and Sara; and sisters and brothers, Jean Pearcey (Harold), Stella Moore (David), Theresa Putt, and Edward Putt and Bev. She was predeceased by her parents, George and Hilda Putt and sister Hope Fleet. Diana was born March 1, 1944 in St. John's, Newfoundland to George and Hilda Putt. Diana was the second youngest of six siblings. She left St. John's at the age of 22 with two small kids in tow to explore the world off the rock. She landed in Lynn Lake, Manitoba in the dead of winter where she lived for five years and began her 33 year career with the CIBC. Diana and Tom, Roberta and Randy then moved to Winnipeg where she continued her career with CIBC. Prior to her retirement in 2001, she worked as an Account Manager in the Private Banking Centre. She forged many strong friendships with both her co-workers and clients. Diana was extremely proud of all her grandchildren and loved spending time with them, particularly during the summer vacation and on family trips to warmer climates. She was an excellent baker and her Toronto family looked forward, with much anticipation, to her Christmas baking, whether they were hand delivered or packaged with extreme care for their journey to Toronto. Diana was a classy lady, her sense of style with her home design, and her fashion sense was something to be admired. She was always ready to offer advice or to join friends and family on shopping expeditions. She was our own personal designer. Diana had a major impact on all who knew her and will be deeply missed and treasured always. She was a trusted confidant to all and was the first one we would turn to for help or advice. Although many things will never be the same without her in our lives, her love of Christmas and the joy she had in giving gifts to all the children (big and small alike) will live on. To Diana the symbolism of providing joy on Christmas was a reminder of times when things were not so easy and joy was much harder to find. Her love of Christmas was infectious and has been passed onto her kids and now to her grandchildren. Her spirit will be with us on every Christmas morning as we remember with each gift how hard she worked as a 22 year old to provide a better life for her kids and made every day feel like Christmas. The family would like to thanks Dr. Roman, the emergency staff at Health Sciences Centre and many family and friends for their cared support. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 25, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at Thomson "In the Park" Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Boulevard. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Diana's memory to CancerCare Manitoba, 675 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3E 0V9.

Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • A beautiful, strong and loving woman who as a boss pushed people to be the best they could. She was my boss yes... But also a part time mother ... Sister ... and friend helping me sort through life and some of its complexities! Often think of her and some of our conversations and experiences and how many things she taught me through experience of her own no doubt! A big hug to Tom, Roberta and the remainder of the family! Know that she will be there with you at Christmas and she will be there helping you pick out flooring for your kitchen. - Posted by: Brenda Gillespie-Aarts (Co-worker /friend) on: Aug 25, 2017

  • I too worked with Diana many years ago. In fact she interviewed me for a position at her branch which was downtown at the time and when I was contemplating returning to CIBC. I enjoyed working with her and had a deep respect. I also knew Lise who shared a memory on this page as well. My heartfelt condolences to her family. Rest In Peace Diana - Posted by: Angela (former co-worker) on: Aug 24, 2017

  • Saw this and was saddened to see Diana passed away. I will never forget Diana as she interviewed me for a job at CIBC many years ago. It was because of her that I became employed with CIBC where I met many wonderful people over the decade that I worked there. - Posted by: Cheryl Zelenitsky (Co-worker) on: Aug 24, 2017

  • I am very saddened to hear about Diana's passing. Even though I had not seen or spoken to her for many years, I often thought about her. I always had intentions of calling her so we could get together and catch up (she will never know that I regret so much not contacting her). Diana was a woman that I really respected. She had a positive influence on my life. My sincere condolences to the family. - Posted by: Lise Huberdeau (Friend) on: Aug 23, 2017

  • I knew Diana through knowing her husband Tom, from Grade 1 on. I remember how gentle and kind she was. I still have her recipe for Sex in the Pan, shared with her usual generousity. She was a lovely soul, and will be missed. - Posted by: Lesley McCombe (Friend ) on: Aug 23, 2017

  • I am so sorry to learn of Diana's passing. I want to extend my sympathy and prayers to Diana's family. I was a Private Banking Client of Diana's when she was with CIBC, for a long time, until moving from Winnipeg. She was always very helpful to me and my family. Diana was a "class act" and I am sure that she created lots of wonderful memories to sustain her family in the years to come. It's important for me and others to reflect on how people have touched our lives as we progress along our individual journeys. Diana touched mine in a positive way for sure. - Posted by: Philip Townsend (Former Client) on: Aug 23, 2017

  • With deepest sympathy to the family. I worked with Diana many years with CIBC and forged a memorable working relationship. She had a heart of gold and always had time for chit chat. - Posted by: Gail Dohan (Co-worker and friend) on: Aug 23, 2017
