Obituary

DIANE (BEVERLEY) BOYLE (published on June 12, 2010)



DIANE (BEVERLEY) BOYLE (nee Weremy) December 26, 1937 - June 8, 2010 It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Diane Boyle, with her family by her side, passed away peacefully, and took the next step in her journey, on June 8, 2010 at St. Boniface General Hospital. Mom bravely battled breast cancer and the ensuing complications right to the peaceful end. It was a courageous fight. Diane leaves to celebrate her life: her husband of 47 years, Stephen; her two sons, Michael (Donna) and her Grand-dog, Shazda; and Dan (Vicki) and her three grandchildren, Kaitlin, Matthew and Mikaela; her brother Jack (Angie), living in Sydney, Australia; as well as many other relatives, nieces and nephews, cousins, friends and co-workers, too numerous to mention. Diane was predeceased by her father, Harry Weremy, and her mother, Isabella (Ella) Wood Rendall (Grandma Weremy). Diane was born in Winnipeg, MB, and grew up on Strathcona Street. It was there that she met many of the friends that she still has to this day. Diane graduated from Daniel Mac Collegiate. Stephen and Diane were married on February 16, 1963. They moved into their first home in 1965 in St. James and share that same home today. It was there that they met a group of neighbours who, too, became friends for life. Diane spent most of her working life at Coopers Lybrand (eventually PriceWaterhouseCoopers), until her retirement in March 2003 Diane was very dedicated and truly enjoyed what she did. During her time at Coopers, and at each step in her working life, Diane developed cherished and close friendships with those she worked with. Her boys really liked her time at Coopers, since mom ran the place; there were always a few tickets to the Winnipeg Jets games that fell through the cracks. In her retirement, Diane enjoyed her volunteer work at the White Cross Guild for the Health Sciences Centre. Mom doted on her grandchildren; shopping for the many perfect gifts; sleep-overs were cherished; no baby-sitting request was refused; holidays were precious and taken very seriously. Mom loved her family and there were never too many gatherings. Friends were a big part of mom's life and maintained through the dinner group, trivia and parties. Mom loved to travel and especially enjoyed her trips to Australia, France, Spain and Alaska. Mom loved to work on her yard, still loved to cut the lawn but finally gave up the snow shovelling. She loved to laugh and boy could she laugh. Mom loved stories, reminiscing and just being with and having people around. We would like to extend our thanks to the doctors and nurses (especially those in the ICU!) at both Grace General Hospital and St. Boniface General Hospital for their special and attentive care of Diane. So many wonderful people have made our journey a little easier during mom's stay in the hospital over these past six and one-half weeks. While visitors were limited, the core that was able to be there were there on a daily basis and for hours at a time. For those who could not visit regularly, they helped out without pause in so many other ways, knowing that Mom appreciated it greatly and would do the same, without question in return. While words cannot adequately express our gratitude, we thank you so very much Mom led her life with love in her heart, integrity and the belief that there was goodness in all people. Her compassion, her love, her kindness, her generosity, her positive attitude will always be remembered. Mom always put the needs of others above hers. There are many examples but the best of them all is how she cared faithfully for Dad. Mom knew the unconditional love and support she had from everyone. Mom, you will forever be in our hearts! A celebration of Mom's life will be held on Tuesday, June 15 at Sturgeon Creek United Church, 207 Thompson Drive, at 3:00 p.m. In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Diane to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation or The Winnipeg Humane Society.
