Obituary of Dianne Lee Young (JOLLEY)

It is with heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Dianne Lee Young on February 2, 2022 at the Greater Niagara General Hospital at the young age of 58. Dianne will be greatly missed by her sons Nathan and Raymond and by her grandson Matthew. She will be lovingly remembered by her sisters Kathy, Debbie and Donna, her nieces and nephews: Terri, Jason, Tammy, Tina, Bobby-Jo, Justin, Chrystal, Jamie and Jessica as well as her Aunt Charlotte and Uncle Weston. Her best friends, Lynn, Sharon and Val will miss the many laughs. Dianne is predeceased by her parents, Margaret and Harry, her Step-dad Robert (Walsh) and her brothers Larry, Brian and Mark.

Dianne was born and raised in Niagara Falls, the youngest of seven children. She was very outgoing and worked as a bartender at the Union Center and a cashier at Zehrs. Dianne was an avid pool player and even competed in a league through the Drummond Inn. Dianne was very family oriented and took pride in raising her two boys. Time spent with her family was most cherished by her, especially time with her niece, nephew and great nephew. She enjoyed her camping trips with her sister Kathy. She will be remembered for her kindness and big heart. She always put everyone else before herself. Now when we think of Dianne we think of a beautiful blue butterfly floating peacefully in the wind, spreading her joy wherever she goes.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). As per her wishes cremation has taken place and a burial of ashes will be held at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Niagara SPCA or the Butterfly Conservatory.
