January 30, 1929 – October 22, 2008
The Elliott Family is sad to announce the passing of our mother and grandmother, Diana Elliott, this past Wednesday, October 22, 2008. Diana was a resident of Salt Spring Island since 1967, enjoying careers with the Salt Spring Elementary School as a secretary, then with B.C. Ferries for 15 years. Diana also enjoyed her many volunteer activities, particularly working with all her friends at Greenwoods, Lady Minto Extended Care, the Lady Minto Hospital Auxiliary and her Church.
Well loved and survived by her family, Ian and Carolyn, Douglas and Ellen, daughter-in-law Kerry and 5 grandchildren Sarah, Gordon, Michael, Harrison and Gregory, and importantly her many beloved friends of Salt Spring, with special mention to Dorothy and Lindsay Kyle. She was predeceased by her husband John Gordon, who passed away in Toronto in 1967 and her life-long friend Agnes Baker, whom she always missed.
The Elliott family wishes to thank Dr. Reznick, Dr. Woodley and the caring Staff and Volunteers at the Lady Minto Hospital for their kind and compassionate support. Memorial services will be held at the Salt Spring Island Baptist Church, 520 Lower Ganges Road, on Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. for friends and family to celebrate Diana’s Salt Spring memories.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Lady Minto Hospital.
