Diane Marie James

May 15, 1955 – May 2, 2018
In Loving Memory Of Diane Marie James.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Diane Marie James. She is survived by her husband Brad James, her son Richard James, her daughter-in-law Sherine James and their children, her step son Jason James and family and her step daughter Katrina Talbot and family, as well as everyone else’s hearts that she has touched.

Diane grew up in Surrey BC and was predeceased by her parents Clifford and Eileen Jean Magnall, whom until their death still resided in Diane’s childhood home in Surrey British Columbia.

Diane was a unique and very special person she was always puttering around the house and in her gardens while listening to her music. She had a play list for every occasion and mood she was in. She loved being outdoors, camping and quadding with her family and traveling with her husband Brad James. Family was of great importance to her, she always wanted to know more of where she had come from and spent countless hours working on her genealogy right up till the very end. Her fear was not being able to get it finished in time to give to her family overseas before she had to leave us.

Her greatest treasure was her son Richard James, she made herself a part of every aspect of his life, taking snap shots and memories along the way. She had the biggest heart and was always so loving and caring. She was a part of the Emergency preparedness team in Chilliwack that helps other people and families in their times of need all across BC. People whom had been devastated by situations like forest fires or floods, she was always there ready and wanting to help.

Diane was very loved and will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends. Even though we can no longer give you a hug, see your smile or hear your words we know that you are still with us waiting for us to all be together again.

Diane’s family would like to thank all the doctors and nurses at the Abbotsford Hospital as well as Chilliwack Hospice for all their help and support for during this hard time.

A memorial celebration of Diane’s life will be held at the family home to honor her memory and to give her our love as per Diane’s wishes.

Love forever and always, Brad, Rick, Sherine and families
