July 10, 1949 – September 2, 2012
Diane was raised in Drayton Valley, Alberta, with her mother and father, Regina and Clarence Anderson, her twin brother Donny, and her three other brothers and four sisters. She was the oldest of the girls. While attending Frank Maddock High School, Diane met and started dating her one and only love, Paul, in 1963, when they were only fourteen and fifteen years old. They married in 1969, moved to Calgary, and purchased their first and forever home at 14 Marwood Circle in 1972 where they proudly raised their son and daughter. Diane worked at AGT before taking a data and finance position at NOVA Chemicals in 1987. She worked there for twenty years until she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2007. Diane courageously battled the disease for over five years before it eventually took her life. She died peacefully at home at the young age of 63 with her son, daughter and husband by her side. Diane will be deeply missed by her four grandchildren, her entire family and all of her friends.
