Obituary

Palmer, Dianne Mary (nee Vallee):

Passed away suddenly on Tuesday, September 15th, 2020 at the age of 81.
Beloved wife of 62 years to the late Ray Palmer (June 2020).
Loving mother of Michael Palmer (Heather), Linda Williams, Jeff Palmer (Susan), Barb Stewart (Don) and Lorin Lopes (Jamie).

Dianne was a loving and caring wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother whose life was taken too soon after a brief but valiant fight against cancer.

Dianne enjoyed spending time with her many friends that she met at the gym and through the Scout House Drum and Bugle Corps. While raising 5 children, Dianne also volunteered as a Girl Guide leader and a ringette coach. After retiring, she contributed thousand of hours delivering Meals on Wheels. She was also actively involved with the Scout House Band. Dianne loved to spending time with her family and at the cottage with her dear friends Bill and Sharon Lowe.

Rest in peace Mom. We will sadly miss both you and Dad but are comforted knowing that you are back together again.

I wish to express my shock and deep sympathy at the passing of Dianne. I fondly remember working with her at Regina St. and the laughs we shared whenever we would meet after that time. I will miss that. Unfortunately, the threat of COVID-19 exposure and the stage my own recovery from surgery prevent me expressing sympathy in person and I am most distraught about that. Be assured that the thoughts and prayers of Judy and myself are with the family and her many friends saddened by this event. God bless you Dianne. Rest In Peace. Ron McKay
