Diane P. Stansfield (nee Hazelwood)

April 23, 1948 - March 29, 2019




We, Diane’s family, sadly announce her passing on March 29, 2019, due to complications with pneumonia at the Grace General Hospital at the age of 70.

Diane was born on April 23, 1948 in Stony Mountain, MB. Diane spend her formative years there and had a very active childhood enjoying her multitude of cousins and friends. As a young woman, she moved to Winnipeg to seek work and she remained there until her passing. Her final residence was at the St. James Legion Apartments on Ness Avenue.

Diane is survived by her son Rick, brother Brian Cooney, her cherished grandchildren, two granddaughters and four step-grandsons, all of Abbotsford, BC.  Also left to mourn her passing are her aunts Doreen (late Jim) Stansfield and Audrey (late Mike) Hazelwood and Uncle George (Margaret) Hazelwood. Diane’s memory will also be held close by the many friendships she made over the years.

She was predeceased by her husband Dennis, her parents Margaret and Bill Cooney, nurturing grandparents Albert Sydney and Margaret Hazelwood as well as four uncles, three aunts and their spouses.

We would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Grace Hospital for their efforts to try to save Diane. Also, thanks to Barb Shorey and team of caregivers. Special thanks as well to Shawn, the Property Manager for his kindness shown to Diane and the assistance he gave us, and the many people involved in the planning of the service. Our gratitude to all who have helped and to anyone that may have been missed.

A celebration of Diane’s life will be held at the Christ Church Anglican Hall in Stony Mountain on May 25, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.  The service will be officiated by Reverend James Bartley.  Diane’s cremains will be interred with her loving grandparents in the church cemetery following the service.
