Diane Gagnon

Diane Gagnon passed away on February 14, 2015 at Kootenay Lake General Hospital in Nelson.

She was 57.

Diane was born August 10th, 1957 in Terrace, BC, and was an avid horsewoman from her early teens. As an adult she settled in the West Kootenays, living there for over 30 years residing in Glade and Salmo where she participated in the West Kootenay horse community. She enjoyed dressage and trail riding and being a horse show mum.

Diane was also dedicated to healthcare and worked for 28 years as a registered nurse and administrator for Interior Health. She enjoyed her colleagues and coworkers and found her work both challenging and rewarding.

While work was an important part of Diane’s life, family and friends came first. She and her husband Wyatt shared a hobby farm together in Salmo enjoying her horses, dogs and other critters.

Although Diane’s life was affected by an illness that finally took her away too soon, she always lived her life with courage, integrity and trustworthiness. She embodied these values in everything she did.

Diane is survived by her husband of 15 years, Wyatt Peebles, her children Danielle Nault (husband Bradly), granddaughters Ava and Lyric Nault, son Lucus Miller (partner Allison), brother Richard Gagnon (wife Barb), nephews Luke and Joel and Niece Justine Gagnon. She is predeceased by her parents Bob and Perside Gagnon.

A service/celebration of life will take place at a later date at her home. Any donations can be made to the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation.
