It is with extremely heavy hearts that we share the passing of Diane Ouellette who looked to find herself taken from us very untimely at the age of 66. She was returned to God sometime between the hours of Tuesday Evening & Wednesday morning of the 15th of November 2023.
Diane will be most lovingly remembered by her son William, his father Greg, her aunts, uncles, nephews, cousins, extended family & especially an extraordinarily large group of friends and family in God. Through her avid involvement in many Churches and Charities she will be remembered as one of the first to volunteer her time and energy as an extremely generous provider & a soft shoulder, for all of those in need.
Diane was a boundless lover of life, in all orders and regards, of all people, of all walks of life. Even more so of all animals, (except birds lol) who she seemed to find a soft spot for every single one of, and all of them seemingly for her (including the birds), as if they were able to sense the type of person that she was just by her presence. She always found a fond way to look to bring the best out of people around her and lived to look to help raise others up, from wherever they might have found themselves.
Born in Toronto. January 7th 1957, to Pierrette (nee Duquette) & Bernard Ouellette. Diane grew up in the area around Christie Pits, until moving to Mississauga (Applewood) in the latter half of her life. She looked to be as positively active a pillar of every community in which she found herself a part of. Diane worked & volunteered in various areas of the hospitality industry for most of her life.
She was predeceased by her Father, Mother and then brother Giles, all of whom she loved and admired immensely. Diane found herself memorializing them positively in many thoughts & actions of her life’s living after their passing.
Towards the end of her life she found herself plagued by a multitude of various health complications. some being rather quite severe. This might have looked to have slowed down lesser people, but not Diane, being as active and lively a member of her many circles up until the very end. Not wanting others to look to worry of her, she tended to keep many of these unfortunate issues to herself. Her passing will overwhelm all to care for her, for a very long time to come.
May God bless her path onward...and our sorry hearts upwards in her loving name & memory.
