Diane Marielle (Joly) Thornton
April 8, 1959 – December 10, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Diane Thornton, on December 10, 2015, after her battle with cancer. Diane was predeceased by her parents, her brother Jean-Paul Joly, and sisters-in-law Sandra and Anne Joly. She is survived by her loving children: David (Edina) Thornton (granddaughters Emily and (Ruby) of Budapest, Hungary and Lisa (Mark) Tomlinson (grandson Carson) of Merritt, BC; sisters Pierrette (Gin) Mah (Cindy and Joanne) of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Claudette Mahon (Shawn and Stacy) of Winnipeg and Lorraine (Jacques) Rochon (Michelle and Phillip) of Sudbury, Ontario; brothers Marcel Joly (Kyle and Kirk) of Sudbury, Donald Joly (Chantal and Tara Lee) of Winnipeg, and Laurier (Valerie) Joly (Chyntia, Jennifer and Steven) of Sudbury.
Diane was born in Sudbury Ontario, moved to Kamloops in 1977, and made it her home. She followed her passion to work with people with disabilities, and she did this for an amazing agency for 27 years. Diane continued her passion by sharing her home with four roommates: Kevin, Kim, Kyle and Channa. She will be missed and always loved.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family at NTFuneral.com.Print This Obituary & Condolences
