Diana Ruth Meredith was born in Vancouver August 18, 1935; and died on Salt Spring Island May 16, 2009. She will be lovingly remembered as a daughter, sister, “crazy” aunt, cousin and friend. Predeceased by her parents Maude and George Meredith, brother Peter Meredith (Oma), brother-in-law Gerald Joslin (Jos) Watson, nephews David Watson and Alan Watson; survived by sister Patricia Watson-Webb (Bill Webb), nephews Gordon (Pat), Stanley, and nieces Jodie, Meredith, Carol (Doug), Barbara (Jim),and their children. She was employed by CNCP Telecommunications for 25 years as an Operator and devoted many years to caring for her aging mother. Diana was so loved for her great sense of humour, and known for her talent with needlepoint. Second to needlepoint, her other favourite hobby was watching and tracking stats for the Toronto Blue Jays. Her dear friends gathered at the Harbour House on May 20th to reminisce and remember her. Special thanks to the amazing nurses at Lady Minto Hospital for loving her like family until family could arrive.

As she so aptly named the Gange’s statue, “Merissa”, she too will return to the sea as we honour her wishes by scattering Diana’s ashes off the shores of Slyvan Springs beach on Vancouver Island.
