cardinalPassed away April 2, 2014 following a lengthy illness, at the age of 54. Diane is reunited with her loving son Cale, who we lost far too soon in 2003. Beloved wife of Brad Simon. Dear mom of Adam Simon and wife Ange of Thamesville. Beloved “Gramma” to “The Little Man”, Bradley Simon. Sister of Giles Leveille and wife Marianne; Ghislaine Gallagher and husband Jim; Normand Leveille, Joanne Leveille, and the late Mike Leveille and surviving wife Maryanne; and the late Guy Leveille and surviving wife Sharon.  Dear sister-in-law of Judy Bobaljik and husband John; and Brenda Dixon.  Dear “Daughter” of Murray Simon, and his late wife, Inez (nee Congdon). Also surviving are many nieces and nephews. Diane’s passions were her family & her writing. She worked for many years as a freelance writer for the Windsor Star, The Leamington Post and others. In keeping with her wishes, a private family service with cremation has taken place. In the hope that warm weather cannot be very far away, the family will host an open house for relatives and friends  to congregate and celebrate “Di’s” life. Time and date to be announced. Memorial donations to your favourite charity would be appreciated. Funeral arrangements entrusted to REID FUNERAL HOME, 14 Russell St., Leamington, Ontario.
