Godin, Diane (née Desjardins)

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Diane Godin (née Desjardins), a devoted wife, an extraordinary mother, loving sister, and cherished grand-mother and friend. Diane left us on June 21, 2024 at the beautiful age of 70, leaving behind a legacy of love and kindness. 

 Born on July 11, 1953 in Gatineau, parents predecease Leo and Louise Desjardins (née Coderre). Diane lived a life full of grace, beauty, and compassion. She was the heart and soul of her family, always putting their needs first and providing unwavering support. Her laughter was a constant presence, her smile a source of joy, and her gentle spirit a comfort to all who knew her. 

  As a wife, Diane was the steadfast partner of Clem Godin. Their union, which began on April 24, 1971, celebrating their 53rd year was a testament to true love and mutual respect. Together, they created a home filled with warmth and happiness, and their bond served as an inspiration to everyone around them. 

  Diane was a devoted mother to her children, Leo Godin and Lyne Brabant, who were the light of her life. She guided them with love, patience, and wisdom, instilling in them the values of hard work, kindness, and integrity. Her children will always remember her as their greatest supporter and most trusted confidante. 

  As a sister, Diane shared a special bond with Marie, Lucie, Réjeanne, André, Michel, Yvon and Fernand. She was a source of strength and laughter, always ready to lend an ear or a helping hand. Her siblings will forever cherish the memories of their time together, filled with love and shared experiences. 

  Diane's life was a beautiful tapestry woven with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories. Known for her passion for dancing, especially to her favorite "Yodel Song," Diane was the life of every family gathering. She found immense joy in cheering for "Diane's Boys," at the bowling, and showing her support for her children and grandchildren in all their endeavors. 

  Diane's dedication to her family was evident in every aspect of her life. She lovingly took care of her children and household while her husband worked out of town, creating a nurturing and loving environment for her family. Diane's love for traveling added an adventurous spirit to her life, and her fondness for being outdoors, particularly at camp, was a testament to her love for nature and family gatherings. 

  Diane was also a dear friend to many. Her kindness, generosity, and sense of humor made her a beloved figure in her community. She had a remarkable ability to make everyone feel welcome and valued, and her friendships were marked by loyalty and deep affection. 

  The family extends their deepest gratitude to the Dialysis Department, the doctors, nurses, and the Personal Support Workers who took exceptional care of Diane during her illness. Special thanks to the ICU staff at HSN for their compassionate care during her final journey. 

  She is survived by her loving husband Clem Godin, her beloved children, Leo Godin (Caroline), Lyne Brabant (Marc), her grand-children Crystal, Dylan, Aaron, Bradley, Nicolas, Brad, Kiera and Maverick, her siblings, Marie (Wayne), and numerous friends who will miss her dearly. Her presence in our lives was a gift, and her memory will continue to inspire us. 

Diane, your extraordinary love, and dedication to your family will never be forgotten. You will be missed tremendously by all who had the privilege of knowing you. Rest in peace, dear wife, mother and grandmother, sister and friend. Your memory will forever be a blessing. Thank you, momma, for loving and caring for us.

   In honor of Diane's remarkable life, a Celebration of Life will be held at Whitewater Lanes in Azilda on August 17, 2024, from 12 to 4 PM, 420 Notre Dame Street East, Azilda, ON. This gathering will be a tribute to the incredible woman who touched so many lives with her warmth, kindness, and unwavering support. Donations in Diane’s memory can be made directly to Diabetes Canada https://www.diabetes.ca/.
