Diana and Art also travelled to St.Louis,Mi. San Fransico, and Rome ,Italy.  Diana started a birthday club with her new friends when she moved to Shepody. Each month someone had a birthday so the ladies would treat the person and take them to the restaurant of their choice. This still goes on today.

She was a Loving wife and Best friend to Art (Brian) her husband of 30 years. Her Death is preceded by her daughter Tammy Lynn, Her sister Kim, Her father Leon(AL), Her aunt Evelyn and Uncle Sonny and Uncle Tom.

She easily made friends; had a great sense of humour and Loved all animals.

With the help of many many people the RCMP and the Wesleyan church had delivered over 3,100 pillow case dresses to Haiti.
