Diane Lynn Markus

January 3, 1951 – January 10, 2019
t is with great sadness that our family announces the sudden passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother. Diane passed after a brief illness on January 10, 2019.

Diane spent all of her 68 years in the Trail and Fruitvale area. She enjoyed the simple things in life; her family, her animals, coffee on the porch and her view of the Columbia River. Diane took immense pride in the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren and was a sweet and loving wife and mother.

Diane is survived by her husband of 49 years, Hans, and their 3 children; Jennifer (Tim), Chris (Evelien), and Julie (Brian) as well as their 6 grandchildren (Ryan, Tyler, Joshua, Madison, Tess and Ian).

As an expression of sympathy, donations in Diane’s memory may be made to the BC SPCA West Kootenay Community Animal Centre, 124 Heritage Way, Castlegar, BC, V1N 4M5 or online at www.spca.bc.ca

As was Diane’s request, no service will be held. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services has been entrusted with arrangements.

You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca.
