MATHESON, Diane Fern

Mother of Steven (Anna) Matheson and Jane (Dave) Butson. Proud grandmother of Nicole and Alex Matheson; and Eric, Matthew and Josh Butson. Dear sister of Bruce (Debi) Shultis and Roy (Liz) Shultis. Aunt to many nieces and nephews. She was the beloved babysitter to many local Acton children.
Diane was a lifelong Acton resident and worked at the Beardmore tannery until its closure. She was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 197. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends and her Frederick St. neighbours who were her second family. The family would like to extend a special thank you to her good friend Donna and cousin Sharon for all their love and support. A big thank you the amazing staff of Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.
Cremation has taken place and as per Diane’s wishes, a private family interment will be held.
