It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Diane Elizabeth Murray (nee McErlain) passed away at Toronto General hospital on January 6th at the age of 64.
Diane is pre-deceased by her mother, Shirley Roscoe, and sons’ father Michael Murray. She is survived by her father, William (Bill) McErlain (Ruth Smart), her sons Ryan and Glen Murray, her sister Linda McErlain and nephews Spencer and Harrison Cook.
Diane will be lovingly remembered by family and friends. A talented nurse and caregiver, she touched many lives with her altruism and generous heart. Her life and career spanned 3 provinces, (Quebec, British Columbia and Ontario), 4 decades and countless patients, most recently at Casey House in Toronto - Canada’s first and only hospital for people living with and at risk of HIV. She had a great sense of humour, was a lover of animals, especially her canine besties, Bella, Sammy and Pepper. Diane loved a good laugh, fought for the underdog, enjoyed music, the arts, her garden, and worked hard to stay connected to relatives near and far.
While the last few years presented some challenging health issues, Diane will forever be remembered as being full of life and energy, going to the ends of the earth to make life perfect for her family. She had a sharp wit, a sentimental nature and an unwavering love for her sons Ryan and Glen.
