Peacefully surrounded by her family at home on Thursday March 2, 2023. Diane Fox age 90 of Mountain. Beloved wife of the late John Fox. Loving Mum of Stephen (Dora), Andrew (Stephanie) and Richard (Roxanne). Cherished Grandma of Amelia and Ethan; Everett and Simon; Jennifer, Rebecca and Cameron Fox.
Born February 17, 1933, in Plymouth England, Diane Butland came to Canada in 1954, living in Halifax Nova Scotia, then later Montreal, Quebec, where she met the love of her life, John Fox, marrying in 1961. Diane and John moved to a farm in the Ottawa Valley in 1969 where they raised three sons Stephen, Andrew, and Richard, and where Diane continued to live for the rest of her life. During a long and full retirement from working in education, Diane enjoyed spending time with her many friends, volunteering at the South Mountain Library and the Winchester District Memorial Hospital and pursuing her passions: knitting, sewing, making jellies and jams, and especially, good conversation.
Diane passed away after a struggle with cancer. She was able to enjoy the company of family and friends until the end.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the South Mountain Agricultural Hall, 2967 Lough Road on Friday May 19, 2023 from 2:00-6:00 pm.
By family request, donations in Memory of Diane may be made to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital.
