In 1975 she moved to Mission with her husband Terry, and sons Shane and Scott. Not long after, she began working at Westvale Foods. As she continued to raise her young family, her career transitioned to East Chilliwack Co-op where she met and established a life long friendship and business partnership with Ellen MacIntyre. In 1988, after a bottle of wine at the river, she and Ellen created Pacific Coast Fruit Products. Dianne’s passions were her family, grandchildren and her business. She loved to read books, travel, garden and to spend time at the lake. After a recent diagnosis and brief battle with cancer, Dianne passed away with her family by her side. A Celebration of her life will be held on June 13, 2019 at 1 pm at the Cedar Valley Mennonite Church 32860 Cherry Avenue, Mission, BC.
