Oct. 7, 1964 – May 30, 2020
Diane was born October 7, 1964 at Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan to Lucien and Doris Lavallee. She grew up together with two brothers and two sisters. Diane first attended school at Crane Valley and later moved with her family to Limerick, SK where she completed her grade twelve education.
Diane was married to Leo Brian Henry at St. George’s Roman Catholic Church in Assiniboia on May 22, 1993. Diane and Leo were blessed with two children, a son Jason and daughter Cara. For some time, the family lived in Simpson before moving to Nokomis. Diane worked at Buds and Blossoms and the Co-op Food store, as well as other odd jobs along the way. She was active with crafts, and painting and loved gardening. Diane’s favourite colour was blue, flower was a rose and pet was her dog Scooter. Diane had many friends with whom she shared much laughter, joyful singing, and heartfelt conversation. The most important thing in life, to Diane, was family, whom she genuinely loved and was most grateful for.
Diane is survived by her loving family, husband Leo; son Jason; daughter Cara; parents Lucien and Doris Lavallee; sisters Suzanne MacDonald and Colette (John Perry); brothers Armand (Sherri) and Gerald (Chalan Steele) and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and a large extended family.
Diane was predeceased by her grandparents, Marie (George) Lavallee and Rose-Ava (Viateur) Forest; brother-in-law Hugh MacDonald and many uncles, aunts and other relatives. Diane died suddenly and unexpectedly as the result of a seizure at Watrous Hospital on Saturday, May 30, 2020.
Diane will be deeply missed by all those who loved her dearly.
As a result of the current COVID-19 restrictions, no Funeral will be held at this time. A Memorial Service is planned, with interment in the Simpson Cemetery, and a Reception to follow in the Simpson Community Centre once the restrictions are lifted.
