We announce the peaceful passing of our mom and fondly known as Nan to everyone, on March 13, 2024, age 76, surrounded by her family to join the love of her life, James Archibald Harvie. She was the daughter of the late Duncan and Elizabeth (MacLellan) Beaton.

Mom/Nan was known for her love of family and strong work ethic, which she instilled in all the generations she raised, both biologically and surrogate mom to her special niece and nephews. Through her illness she led her family with peace and strength. She was a consummate caretaker to all those in need. Through her passing she had great faith on her journey to be with her husband and family who predeceased her. She has always proved everyone wrong and beat the odds.

Mom/Nan is survived by her daughter, Elizabeth Harvie; grandson, Shayne (Angela) Harvie; great-granddaughter, Mia; granddaughter, Ally (Connor) MacEachern; son, Rodney (Jill);  grandchildren, Willie Archie, Sammy, Ellie; son, Michael and grandson, Jacob (Emily); great-granddaughter, Oaklee; niece, Stephanie (Shane) MacNeil; honorary grandson, Drew; nephews, Keith (Courtney) Beaton and Leonard (Brandi) Beaton; grandnephews, Garrison and Ewan; step-children, Jackie (Angelina) Harvie, Kathy (Mike) Samson, Susan and their children and grandchildren; brother, Robert Beaton and family.

Predeceased by her husband; parents; brothers, Jimmy and Donald; sister, Anne Marie; sisters-in-law, Alice and Barb Beaton; child in Infancy, and grandson, Jake Harvie.

We want Mom/Nan to be remembered for her love of storytelling, a good cup of tea and toast and watching Coronation Street. She was always helping people in need and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

There will be no visitation or service at this time.

Donations in memory of Diana may be made to the Hospice Society of Victoria County.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.

Please accept our sincere condolences. So many childhood memories of visiting the cousins in Baddeck and in later years enjoying great Chinese food and a quick chat. We hope you find solace in her peace.
