On the 10th January 2024 my wife Dianne Jonat passed away in Pioneer Lodge with friends and family by her side. She was 65 years old.
Dianne was pre-deceased by her father, brother, and mother, all from Mount Pearl NL and is survived by me, Joe, her husband of 41 years, her son Adam, numerous relatives throughout the east coast of Canada and Newfoundland and by many close friends and neighbours in Moose Jaw and Regina.
Dianne served in the military from October 1980 until her retirement in May 2003. It was here that she met me, her future husband, and it was NOT love at first sight! But, over the next 41 years, through numerous trials and tribulations, this love grew, to the point where we were looking forward to celebrating our golden wedding anniversary, but that was not to be.
After she retired from the military Dianne enjoyed working around the house, the garden and taking care of cats, both our house cats and strays. If she were ever beatified, she would most likely be the patron saint of cats.
The family would like to thank Dr. Brent Janzen for the years of wonderful care he gave her, as well as the nurses and caregivers she had in the last month of her life.
A Celebration of Life for Dianne will take place, at W.J. Jones & Son Funeral Home on Saturday the 27th April 2024. Details will be announced at a later date.
In place of flowers, donations may be made to the Moose Jaw Humane Society or the charity of your choice. Better yet, use the planned donation to take your friends and loved ones to the restaurant of your choice in celebration of your own life.
In living memory of Dianne, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson.com (Obituaries). Funeral Director – Dayna Chamberlain
