1938 – 2018
We are very saddened to announce the passing of Diane Hungerford on April 1, 2018 at the age of 79. Diane is survived by her son Mark (Martha), granddaughter Carley, sister Joan (Elaine), sister-in-law Ruby, niece Shelley, nephew Rod, and extended family. She was predeceased by her parents, Ben and Alberta Ingram, brother Dick, and twin sister Doreen.
Diane was born in Oakville, MB on November 12, 1938. She loved sports, dance, drawing, and occasionally playing the horses at Assiniboia Downs. She was an avid golfer and played competitively in softball and curling. Diane’s team won bronze in the Canadian Senior Curling Championship in 1990 and her softball team was inducted into the Softball Hall of Fame with the Canadian Ukrainian Athletic Club (CUAC) in 2005. She was well-revered for her talent in creating and producing skits during Action 100 at the Charleswood Legion 100 of which she was a member for many years. The Action 100 has never been the same since she retired from those productions. For 30 years, Diane worked as comptroller for Prendiville Industries where she was a loyal, valued employee. She always cherished her lifelong friendship with Maureen and Paul.
Diane lived a full life and made many friends along the way. Thank you to Mike and Karen for their many years of friendship and for always looking out for Diane.
She was smart, independent, had a great wit and sense of humour, bucked the trend, and did everything on her own accord. She was a staunch believer that animals should be free and she will be dearly missed by Shadow and Cricket.
Thank you to the doctors and nurses at Grace Hospital Emergency and 3rd Floor for their compassionate care. In keeping with mum’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. Cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of Diane’s life at the Charleswood Legion 100 on April 14 anytime from 5 to 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society.
