Sadly, Diane passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.  Diane was a kind, generous, compassionate soul who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

Diane was born in Vernon and lived in Kamloops, Montreal, and Vancouver.  She worked for Ducks Unlimited and retired from Credit Union Central of British Columbia.

Diane enjoyed an active retirement. She volunteered for New Vista Society, for which her genuine friendly nature and natural warmth were appreciated by the residents.  Diane enjoyed ten pin bowling, lawn bowling and golfing until her recent decline in health, and she had a wide circle of friends from those activities.  Diane was predeceased several years ago by her husband Ernie Agutter, and more recently by her best friend of fifty years Allana Lapointe.  Diane is survived by her Aunt Mary Illner of Airdrie, AB, and by her three beloved nephews of whom she was very proud.

Diane loved animals, especially elephants and cats, rescuing and cherishing several animals throughout her lifetime.  If friends so wish, a donation in her memory to BCSPCA or Elephant Orphan Rescue Nairobi, Kenya would be appreciated.  A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Saturday, August 7th, 2021, at Kearney’s Columbia Bowell Chapel in New Westminster.
