We are sorry to announce the passing of our mom, Shirley Diane. Mom was born July 6, 1942 and went to be with the Lord December 28, 2012.
She was predeceased by her parents Leslie and Jean Heppell.
Diane is survived and will be greatly missed by her daughters Brenda (Darcy) Ferrier, Tracy Anderson, Melodie Greco (Darcy Hickey), eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; her brother Terry (Karen) Heppell, and sister Marie Keye, as well as two nieces and two nephews.
Mom was born in Vancouver and moved to the Interior during her adult years. Mom will be remembered for her tireless work as a secretary in various schools in the Kamloops area, most notably Pinantan Lake Elementary. In 2009 she moved to the Fraser Valley and settled down in Chilliwack. The last three years of her life she enjoyed attending the Mount Cheam Lions Club, as well as the fellowship of Chilliwack Baptist Church where she was baptized in June 2011.
The family would like to thank Dr. Ross, the staff of 4 South at Chilliwack General Hospital, Dr. Bull and the staff at Cascade Hospice for their loving care during her final weeks.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 5th, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at Chilliwack Baptist Church, 46336 First Ave., Chilliwack, B.C.
