Diane leaves her nephews Brad, son (Jessie), daughter (Donna), Todd, daughter (Amber) and son (Jordon), Brent, daughters (Alyssa and Danica). Her Kulczycki nephews (Kaleb, Kelly and Matt).
Diane was a highly motivated and energetic person. Diane found enjoyment in organizing family activities, sporting events, workplace parties along with get togethers for birthdays, weddings, Grand Beach vacations and get togethers with the Oaks, Melville's and Marchant's and countless home town parties for friends that she and friends had lost.
Diane was always planning something, trips to Florida, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico and many, many trips to BC and Alberta. Summer time trips to Sandy Lake to visit the Sichewski, Chastko and Moroz family and friends for all their birthdays, weddings, reunions, Christmas and any other reason to visit all those folks that were so special to her. Fishing, boating was always something that she included in her activity planner.
Diane's first job was at Pony Corral on Pembina Hwy when she was 14. She attended Churchill High School and eventually started working for Dr. Ellis as a receptionist. She started working at Burns Foods Winnipeg in 1975 and then for Maple Leaf Consumer Foods. Diane loved the people she worked with and held countless get togethers for Christmas parties, along with countless socials.
Diane organized a Board of Directors, with that they created a Maple Leaf Day Care Center called the Panda Bear Day Care Center on Lagmodiere Blvd. Along with Maple Leaf sponsorship, Diane organized the "Dragon Boat Races", were employees, friends and family got together, paddling for a "Cure for Cancer". She enjoyed doing this for years.
Diane worked part time at the Tache Municipality in Lorette as a part of her on going accounting training. She also held the position of Secretary Treasurer for the Lorette Sports Center. She worked with Maple Leaf Foods as an Inventory Production Planner until she retired. She always said that she worked with the best people and that she found a great loss and sadness when she left the Bacon Division of Maple Leaf.
Diane and David built their home in Lorette and were there for 46 years. There they raised their four children along with managing work with family and friends. Diane's Lorette friends Evonne and Claude Bernier were there for all the assistance that was ever needed. They were very special to Diane as their friendship was a loving, caring and sharing friendship.
Diane had started a donation campaign for clothing, housewares, toys, games and furniture for the war torn Ukrainian families that were coming to Winnipeg. She was deeply saddened by the carnage inflicted on those families and children. Diane was always there for everybody and would always help out as much as she could. Diane leaves a countless number of friends that have been instrumental in her life. They will always miss her laughter, smiley face and her bubbly personality. Diane also leaves her best four-legged friend, Chopper, a friend that never left her side and was her most trusted companion.

We will all miss our shining star, Diane.

Cremation has taken place and a service will be announced at a later date.

  • ODE TO DIANE This is a story of Diane, I'll begin, who was special to us like a next of kin. Twenty-three years of friendship and love, She truly was sent from heaven above. Fiesty, loyal, a die hard giver and doer, Nothing stopped her, this could not be truer. A lover of life, family and beyond, Selflessly working on everything with that magic wand. A determined soul full of giggles and smiles, So giving of herself no matter the miles. A passionate protector of her family, You cannot find a person who would not agree. Always striving to better herself, No way this girl could be put on a shelf. Humor and laughter were two of her strengths, That allowed her to tackle anything at length. A party planner, a hostess, a starter of many events, After all this was Diane, it makes perfect sense. We honor you, your life and your ways, And will keep your spirit alive the rest of our days. Love and light.. The Champagne family Lisa (Mrs.Champagne, a nod to Shawn), Claude, Jasmine and Chelsea. - Posted by: Lisa M. Champagne (Good friend) on: Sep 21, 2022

  • Although half my size Diane appointed herself my protector since childhood. We knew of each others ups and downs in life and she was always there. We lived different lifestyles yet accepted each other completely. We were chased across a field by a bull, ate Kraft dinner and cokes every school lunch hour. Her heart was big not nearly as tough as she pretended . I love you princess Di now you will finally see mum, dad and all your missing family again. Till we meet again To David and boys she's at peace now ❤️hugs 💐Wendy - Posted by: Wendy Davis (Friend since kindergarten) on: Sep 17, 2022

  • Heartfelt sympathies to Dave and family. Diane was synonymous with love and friendship. One cannot describe the sadness or love we felt for Diane when we learned of her passing. Oh no; we will no longer get random telephone calls, see her mischievous smile, hear her laugh and endless giggles or listen to her incredible stories about life, family or the next party she was planning. She had an incredulous zest for life, a sense of humour, and her heart…was bigger than life itself. No wonder she enjoyed several circles of friends – but the core of her love and strength was you, Dave, her children and grandchildren. She adored and loved all of you and cared deeply for the grandchildren. We will fondly remember Diane with gratitude for all the good times that we had the privilege of spending with her. Rest in Peace, Buddy! Love you! - Posted by: Brenda & Mark Mazur (Friends) on: Sep 12, 2022

  • I've known Diane since 1973. Her light and love for everyone she knew shone brightly. She had a huge capacity for Love, but especially for Dave and her family.
