CHARBONNEAU (LAROCQUE), Diane

1962 - 2022
In her 60th year, Diane passed away at home after a complex health battle. She consistently demonstrated enduring strength and a remarkably positive outlook on life.
 
Diane is survived by her devoted husband Albert Charbonneau whose support saw no bounds, as well as her daughter Abby Charbonneau (Nicholas), and Albert's daughter Veronica Charbonneau (Brandon). 
 
Diane was the third of four daughters born to the late Harold Paul and Marie Rose Larocque. She is survived by her sisters, Pauline Kenny, Patricia Hamilton, Laurie Blahey and their families. She is also survived by her mother- in-law Lucy Charbonneau (late Roger), and her brothers-in-law Robert, Michael, Danny and their families.
 
Diane forged her own unique path in life, typically on her own terms. She was happiest when pursuing opportunities expressing her creative and artistic talent as well as her entrepreneurial spirit.
 
As per Diane's wishes, a private family internment will take place at a later date. 
 
In memory of Diane, please pay it forward with a kind gesture especially for those with accessibility issues or a donation to  Blanche River Health Foundation, Kirkland Lake site would be appreciated.
The family is especially grateful to her friends and neighbours who provided support and a safety net for her.
