Diane Y. Stewart Tribute

Jun. 11, 2018

Diane Y. Stewart, 1993

A ‘Woman of Excellence’ in 1995, for her work in Health, Science and Technology. Our Board Chair from 1994-5.  A donor. A fundholder. A friend.

Diane Y. Stewart passed away peacefully at home last Wednesday, June 6, 2018. Diane was a truly remarkable woman, leading and empowering those around her with dignity and respect. Professional development was very important to Diane and every year, her fund here at LCF makes it possible for around 15 LHSC employees from across all departments to pursue further education, opening doors to opportunities otherwise unattainable. A beautiful example of a true leader empowering others.

Fittingly, the annual Diane Y. Stewart award ceremony is today. For a number of years, she hasn't been able to attend but today we'll feel more deeply her absence.

We have many fond memories of working with Diane, as we’re sure many of you do as well. We will be paying tribute to Diane and her dedication to the community this Thursday:

Funeral Service: Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 11:00 AM

St. Paul’s Cathedral, 472 Richmond St. at Queens Ave.,

Reception to follow. Internment Sherman Cemetery, Thamesville.
