We Remember


August 25, 1944 — January 19, 2018

Diane Margaret Murray was born August 25th, 1944, in Red Deer AB, and passed away January 19th, 2018 in Kelowna, BC.  Diane was also known as Mums, Deeds, DD, Di and, maybe most importantly, Nana-Bear. She was a devoted mother to her two sons, John and Stewart, daughter-in-law, Melanie, as well as a loving Nana to her four granddaughters, Ella, Jayne, Kate and Maisie who loved her dearly.

Diane was a highly committed, caring daughter to her predeceased mother and father, Jean and Fred Lamb and sister to her brother, John Lamb. A loyal friend to many, Diane always gave generously of her time and heart to those who were close to her. She was a woman of boundless positive energy and a strong sense of pride. Diane was highly active and contributed in many ways to the community in which she lived. She was a member of Beta Sigma Phi for over 30 years, President of the Chamber of Commerce, volunteer at the Kelowna General Hospital, was active at the West Kelowna Yacht Club and on the social committee at Sonoma Pines. Throughout her wonderful life, Diane worked successfully as a health care worker, a legal secretary, florist, realtor and real estate marketer. Although her physical presence will be greatly missed, her energy and amazing spirit will surround all those that know and love her. For those interested, donations can be made to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, www.kghfoundation.com. The family would like to thank all the kind and caring professionals who helped treat her and care for her. A private celebration of life will take place in her honor this Spring in West Kelowna where we can all pay tribute to this incredible and beloved person.

    Our condolences to John and Stewart and their families. We both knew Fred and Jean in Calgary and then met Diane when she and Wayne were at REMAX. We both worked with them for a number of years there. A lot of fun times were had over the years. We met Ed later on and enjoyed his company as well. Diane was a very special lady and will be sorely missed. Rest well and peacefully Diane.

  • Harry and Carol Oberle says:

    We have known and loved Diane since she moved to San Francisco in 1967. Our wonderful reunions when she was Mrs. Worth ( San Francisco and Calgary), Mrs. Newton (Seattle), and Mrs. Murray (Concord and Palm Springs CA), were always special. Diane was one of the most social, loving, caring people we have ever met. She wii be missed.
    Prayers and love for our wonderful friend, Diane, and John, Stewart & Mel, and their precious daughters.

    Dee had a Smile that would light up any room, she loved to come out to karaoke and both Dee and Robert would sing, she was a friend and confidant, always something pleasant and sometimes supportive to say, when I needed it….it gives me comfort to know that her and Robert are reunited again, she was delighted to find a beautiful diamond ring, he had hidden in the pantry for her Birthday, before his passing! It brought tears to her beautiful sparkly eyes! I will miss her! R.I.P. my Lovely Friend!
