Sad News about Our Colleague Diana

Dear Colleagues and Friends

On the 30th July, when taking her dog Bertie to her local park for his usual walk. Di was somehow in collision with a cyclist participating in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 2017 event. This crash left Di with critical head injuries which she bravely fought to recover from. However, that battle was lost yesterday evening at 8pm.

Therefore, it is with the greatest sadness that we (ALS) inform you of our dear colleague Diana’s untimely death.

It goes without saying how much this lovely lady will be missed. Each of us who were honoured to have known or worked with her will no doubt have our own fond memories, along with lots of interesting stories to share with one another about her fierce and dry sense of humour, her pragmatics views about life and of course her absolute devotion and commitment to her beloved profession of lipspeaking. Diana leaves behind a huge and irreplaceable chasm, heart breaking.

Over the past few weeks whilst in hospital, lots of ‘get well’ wishes and thoughts flooded into Di. Each sentiment was full of love and concern. Testimony to the affection and respect that she engendered from all she came into contact with. Some thoughts even came from individuals who had only heard about Di’s demise and had never even met her. But they felt it important to let her know that they were thinking of her, how wonderful.

A complete tragedy that is so very hard to comprehend. Diana you will truly be missed.
