November 20, 1953 – November 11, 2010
Diane Purdy, beloved wife of Blair of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, November 11, 2010 at the age of 56 years, surrounded by her loving family.
She was a wonderful homemaker and cook, but above all Diane’s greatest accomplishment in life was her family. She will be greatly missed. In the end, she approached her illness as she did her life – with courage, grace and humour. Diane was an inspiration to all.
