Whiskin, Diane Elizabeth

Peacefully at the Hamilton General Hospital on Monday November 11, 2019 in her 84th year. Beloved wife of the late Bill Whiskin (2010). Loved mother of Alan (Carolyn), Elaine and Andrea. Cherished Grandmother to Hilary and Claire. Predeceased by parents Tom and "Nancy" Barnard, and sister Jane Ball.
Diane's love of writing has left us with many memories of her childhood in Guernsey/Somerset, England, her life in Hamilton and time spent with family and grandchildren. Diane will be remembered for her kind gentleness, always grateful for other's generosity, and her enjoyment of the simple things in life.

Diane always had a kind word, a gentle voice and an open home to myself and my children, Victoria and Chelsea. I remember fondly taking the kids for a dip in the pool on many summer afternoons. She will be missed. Thinking of all of you at this hard time.

Diane will always be remembered for her bright smile, gentleness, kind demeanour , her love for her family and her "crafting abilities". Never wanting to be the centre of attention but always wanting to be a part of a gathering, Diane enjoyed outings of all sorts of occasions, be it the Sound of Music parade and breakfast, a summer BBQ, or celebrating a birthday .To Alan and Carolyn , Elaine and Andrea, Hilary and Claire, our heartfelt condolences for your loss, we loved Diane as well and will miss her very much.
