STEFFEN, Shirley "Diane" (Nee Morgan)
April 6, 1945 - February 28, 2013
My beloved sister Diane passed away surrounded by family after a five-year battle with breast cancer. Diane had a true gentle soul. She valued the simple things like family and friends and she found joy in her art, baking, gardening and welcoming her loved ones into her home. She was a devoted mother and grandmother and played an important role in the lives of her many nieces and nephews. Diane faced many adversities throughout her life. Despite this, she showed great courage and resilience. I have always been so very honoured and proud to be her sister. I will always cherish beautiful memories of our times together and take comfort in the fact that she will now be reunited with her son Jim, and her husband Oz, who passed away before her. I would like to thank her many friends, family and caregivers that provided love and support throughout her life, and especially at the end of her journey. Special thanks to the Irene Thomas Hospice which provided wonderful care. For information regarding Diane's upcoming celebration of life and to send messages or condolences, please email me (Audrey) at In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Irene Thomas Hospice or a charity of your choice.
