She is survived and will be profoundly and forever missed by her loving daughter Lisa Huck (Brooks), son-in-law Mike Huck, son Billy Brooks, and her two beautiful grandchildren, Samuel and Abigail, whom she loved to bits and pieces. Diane was also was very excited about sharing her love with her soon to be third grandchild. Diane will be sorely missed by her three brothers, Victor, Richard and David, and her extended family Scotty, Kelly and Ethan. Diane grew up on a beautiful farm in Metchosin, B.C. where she developed her strong work ethic, rode horses, and raised cattle and sheep for the 4H Club. She later resided in Sooke, B.C. where she continued her love of farming, riding horses and raising animals. She spent many years owning and operating a thriving farm and deeply enjoyed all aspects of a rural life and was closely attached to the land. She was a member of the Vancouver Island Saddle Club for many years, where she competed in the cutting horse sector. Diane was a long time employee of the Sooke School District and proudly belonged to the CUPE Union #459 where she will be sadly missed. Diane was an avid outdoors woman who loved fishing, riding horses, gardening and ATVing. She had many friends who loved her and who she in turn thought of as her family. Diane will always be missed and be remembered by all as a hard working, adventurous, dancing queen, with a heart the size of her beautiful smile. “May your golden angle wings carry you through to your next adventure.” A celebration of life for Diane will be held on January 26, 2013 at 1pm at Edward Milne Community School in Sooke, B.C.
