Richardson; Dianne Laura (nee Revell)
Dianne Laura Richardson passed away from cancer at Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack, BC on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the age of 69 years. She was born to the late Bill and Flora Revell on August 25, 1944 in London, Ontario. She graduated from university as a teacher in Nancy, France in 1964 and married Paul Richardson. They moved to Chilliwack in 1972. She is survived by her daughter Mary, son-in-law Dave Casey and grandchildren Kieran and Thea; daughter Paula, son-in-law Scott Maguire and grandchildren Emma, Joshua and Samuel. She spent her entire life living for the people she loved. She was passionate about teaching during her 37 year career in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. She retired from teaching French at Sardis Secondary in 2004 in order to spend more time with her grandchildren. She gave endlessly to the people she loved, willingly sharing her talents and her time. Visiting and traveling with her family and friends brought her so much joy. During her retirement she continued to travel the world. She was a wonderful grandmother, mother, friend and mentor. For our families, she will remain our teacher for decades to come, as the lessons she taught us continue to resonate throughout our lives. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to BC Children’s Hospital. She saw this as such a great charity, as she was always so very thankful for her five healthy grandchildren. Thank you to Dr LeGresley, Dr Bull and the staff at Cascade Hospice. The time and place for her celebration of life will be announced shortly. McLean’s Funeral Home will be the contact.
