FOX, Diane Veronica
May 9, 1947 - June 18, 2020
It is with profound sadness that the family of Diane Veronica Fox (née O'Connor) announces her passing on Thursday June 18, 2020 at the age of 73. She died peacefully at Starwood with her loving family by her side. She is now reunited with her beloved parents, her mother Vera O'Connor (née Bowen) and her father Daniel O'Connor. Cherished wife and best friend of James Mahoney for 36 years. Proud mother of Lori Fox (Simon) and Michael Fox. Adoring Nana to her loving, precious grandchild Oliver Glavina. Loving sister of Dawn Haime, Dan (Pat) and David O'Connor (Ann). Dear aunt of John (Tricia) and Kevin Haime (Lisa), Meghan and Shannon O'Connor (Joel) and great aunt to Jake, Jackson, Aidan, Abigail, Dylan and Maya. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Diane and her family moved to Ottawa in 1949. She attended Corpus Christi Elementary School and Immaculata High School.
Diane was kind, generous, honest, loyal, creative, perceptive, feisty and had a great sense of humour. She was devoted to her family and had a strong faith in God. She spent many years as an accountant and then started her own tailoring business. A few years later she opened a store, "Garb" with her daughter and they spent 10 special years running it together.
Her life will be forever remembered in the lives of her family and friends. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date when we can gather and celebrate Diane's life together.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the caring and compassionate staff at Starwood Extendicare.
