Diana Betty Donnie Dunn was born April 12, 1933, in Solsgirth, Manitoba, to Hilda and Alex Dunn and passed away October 18, 2022, with her good friends Sandra and Don Seal by her side.
Diana attended a business college in Winnipeg and was employed there for about seven years. From there she moved to the United States for employment with Dole Pineapple Company in San Diego. From there she worked in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, and New York City. She didn't like NYC, so she applied with the Government on external affairs where she was employed in Brussels, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, and Portugal. Sickness in the family had her take a posting back in Ottawa, and then a leave of absence to spend with family. Upon her dad's death in December 1969, she looked after her mother faithfully until her death in July of 1994.
Diana was predeceased by her mom, dad, and brother Raymond. She leaves to mourn, her sister Linda Robinson; niece Dalin and nephew Alex; all of Chase, B.C. and her niece Marie of Dominion City; Jennifer of Cormack, NL, and nephew Fenton of Calgary. In the last few years Diana was cared for by her good friends Sandra and Don Seal.
There will be no formal services.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Wendy & I are having a Mass for Diana at St. Ignatius Church on Friday, August 11th at 11:00 a.m. This time was the earliest that was available. We saw Diana at church at St. Ignatius and we loved her as a friend. She had such an interesting life living in various parts of the world. My daughter and son-in-law live in Lucerne, Switzerland and of course, we had many conversations about Switzerland when Diana lived there. As seniors, we were always concerned about our driving so we took together a Driver' Safety Course and we had a lot of fun with that. Diana also attended our Monday Morning Prayer Group with lunch after and we visited with the rest of the parishioners. We missed her dearly when she moved out of her neighborhood and away from St. Ignatius Parish. She came only once in a while to St. Ignatius as it was further away. It is so unfortunate that she had to move. I phoned her during Covid. May she rest in peace in the arms of the Lord. Sincerely, Muriel St. John & Wendy Whitecloud - Posted by: Muriel St John & Wendy Whitecloud (Friend ) on: Mar 10, 2023

  • Still mourning the passing of my aunt Diana today. She really inspired me as a young girl; taught me how to shuffle cards, hold my knife and fork like a lady, opened my mind to imagine traveling on a ship to far off lands. She gave me a giftset of tiny perfumes from France that I kept thru my childhood. She loved going to movies and we would often go together- she inspired me to watch ALL the credits after the film was over 😆 then we would discuss it later over coffee. She loved to debate (aka argue lol) and I enjoyed her challenges. I'm still sad there was no funeral for her, no "celebration of life" so I am still celebrating her in my own heart and every time I look at her belongings I will remember her. She definitely had a "life" before committing to selfless caring for Granny Dunn. I miss her dearly 🥰 - Posted by: Marie (Niece) on: Nov 15, 2022

  • We met Diana in Birtle. Her parents lived in Birtle just a couple of houses from our house on Vine Street. She would come home to visit and we got to know her. My Wife met her briefly on Lipton Street in Winnipeg, she was going for a walk. May she rest in peace. Amen. - Posted by: Gay and Dwight Stewart (Friends) on: Nov 05, 2022
