Dianne Mannion

Dianne Mannion

Sadly, on the morning of Monday, September 17th, Dianne Mannion passed away suddenly. Much loved and respected for doing it “her way”, Dianne Winifred Mannion was a woman of integrity, inner strength and grace.

Dianne was very much loved and devoted to her husband Kevin, sister Linda (Grant), four children; Jan, Jon (Jodi), Jill (Ann) and Joel and her most treasured grandchildren Brendan, Emma and Amy.

Although she struggled privately with significant health challenges in her final years, Dianne moved forward with courage, pride and a “don’t worry about me, how are YOU?” attitude.

Born in Regina on November 19th, 1940, Dianne was predeceased by her father Frank Dickson, mother Madge and brother Dean (Sharolyn). Dianne had a love of family, a passion for gardening, love of finding the best recipes and cooking and a deep love for her dogs over the years; Bram, Gilda, Leka, and Pepe – her best buddies!

A 2nd to none cookbook collection always produced special family gatherings. Dianne will be lovingly remembered for her dignity, compassion and a laughter that could light up a room. Blessed with a deep insight and vision, she seemed to always have that sixth sense about people and often knew what was bothering you or happening in your life, even before you knew it.

Cremation has taken place and a small, private celebration will follow at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Dianne’s name can be made to the SPCA.
