It is with our deepest sorrow we announce the sudden passing of a wonderful mother, daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend, Dienna Margaret Daw.

She loved the country life, fishing, camping, and canoeing. She was a loving, friendly, outgoing, and a very outspoken young woman. She attracted many friends with her wonderful personality. She was always willing to help her friends and seldom asked for help herself.
