Diana M. Cameron (Pretzer) Age 65
Proud Mother and Doting Grandmother

Diana passed away peacefully on a sunny afternoon August 23, 2012, at Surrey Memorial Hospital in Surrey, BC. All her girls were at her side.

She had lived with Cancer for a little over three years, and that was only part of her story. The better part of her story was mothering five children!

She was born October 17, 1946, in Moose Jaw, SK to Daniel William Pretzer (d.1991), and Dorothy Berna Pretzer (Collins)(d.1989). Two older protective brothers, Lawrence (Pud) Pretzer (d.2009), of Moose Jaw SK, and Donald (Donny) Pretzer, of Port Coquitlam, BC.

Diana married Duncan Cameron on March 20, 1965. They later divorced. She enjoyed being married and raising a family in Moose Jaw. She made many friends there and it was a sad day when the family moved to Edmonton, AB in 1981.

Life in Edmonton brought many a good time and a few tough times. This is where Diana spent most of her years working a nightshift job, never remarried, and remained committed to raising her girls into young adulthood. Even though she was too young at the time, she welcomed her first two grandsons. She always stayed true to herself and her goals. A very loyal and committed mother. She even managed to buy herself a car and a home.

In the Spring of 2008, she moved to Surrey, BC to retire and live with her two daughters Marjie and Tracy, son-in-law Roland, and her three youngest grandchildren.

Mother will be greatly missed by her five daughters Kelly, Marjie, Tracy, Holly and Carly; her five wonderful grandkids Andrew, Brian, Julian, Zoe and Stefan; her sons-in- law, Ken, Roland, Darcy and Tim; her brother Donny, her many girlfriends, her cousins, all her nieces and nephews, and their growing families, and even her in-laws -she quite enjoyed making memories with them!

It is worth mentioning the number of extras that were attracted to her. Well over a dozen honorary sons and daughters! She was one to enjoy all the added company.

Diana wasn’t just a mom. She was a sister, a daughter and a grandma. She was a great friend. An Aunt. She was really funny. She liked Elvis so much her girls thought he was their dad. She liked to dance. She sewed a few dozen dance outfits, kids clothes, and Halloween costumes throughout her life. She delighted in decorating every home. Diana was a natural teacher with a tolerance level better than most. She was the best storyteller. A wonderful artist. She was compassionate, patient and kind.

Diana would suggest we all spend time listening to our children, to allow them to finish their stories, go and bake a cake, meet with a friend for a coffee, tell a story, be nice to one another and get along.

A special thank you for all the beautiful flowers sent to the house, the abundance of food delivered by friends, the never ending flow of love and support from friends and family. Diana was treated very special by all her doctors and the nursing staff at Surrey Memorial Hospital.

Diana's daughters Kelly Jans(Cameron), Marjie Cameron, Tracy Cameron, Holly Cameron, and Carly Cameron invite friends and family to a Celebration of Life in honor of their Mother Diana.

To be held at Temple Gardens Mineral Spa Resort on Saturday, October 6th, 2012 at 2 pm.
