It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we, the family, announce the peaceful passing of Diane (Lahey) Peinsznski on Friday, November 12, 2021, at Seaview Manor in Glace Bay.

Diane kept a very positive attitude during her brief battle with cancer. She had an incredible love for her family and many close friends. She was an amazing daughter, wife, sister, mother and grandmother and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Diane was employed in the fishery for many years before finding her calling helping others as a CCA with the County Homemakers, a job she really enjoyed for the past 18 years. She enjoyed gatherings with her family and friends and nights with the grandkids watching movies and eating take out.

Diane is survived by her loving son, Jamie; grandchildren, Jonathan, Ciara and Layla; mother, Evangeline ‘Vangi’ Lahey; brothers, Wayne (Doreen), Maurice (Florence), Lawrence (Aileen), Kenny (Jackie), Kevin, Basil (Karen), and Darren; in-laws, Paula (Charlie), Donna (Donnie), Glenda and Danny; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Diane was predeceased by her husband, John; father, Maurice and brothers, Tom and Billy.

The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, the cancer centre and the palliative care unit and a special thank you to the staff of Seaview Manor in Glace Bay for their passionate and loving care and their great support for Diane and her family during her short stay.

Online Condolences

Sending Heartfelt Sympathy and Condolences to Diane’s entire family . I’ve known her since she was a little girl and she’s always been a very sweet person . Years ago while working for Homecare she would come to my Mother’s home in Bateston ( Veronica Ward) to take care of her and she did a wonderful job . The compassion she showed to my Mother really touched my heart . Mum loved to see Diane coming and always looked forward to having her in her home . She was always so cheerful with Mum and very kind to her . She was also a friend of mine on Facebook for quite some time now and I will miss her friendship on there .
Please know my heart is heavy over her passing and I hope that knowing her suffering is over will give you all some comfort . Rest In Peace Diane and fly high with the Angels 🙏you finally have your wings my friend 💔From:  Diane Colucci
