Diana Mary Mulloy

March 1st, 1934 - Nov 15th, 2021

Diana Mary Mulloy has died. She died as she lived, on her terms, with fervour, determination and unabashedly herself. We, her three daughters, Wendy Ann, Eleanor, and Beth once again find ourselves bereft. We do find solace knowing she is in the next world with her beloved Kenneth Joyce and she is also relieved from living through another dreaded Yukon winter.

Diana loved flowers, warm sunshine, sand, pretty things, travelling, cozy beds, cups of tea, phone calls with Joyce, Netflix (Grey’s Anatomy) and of course her beloved KJ. She leaves behind the three most wonderful daughters a mother could hope for, her grandchildren: Emily (Joshua), Mathew, Aaron and Lusia (Jason); her step-grandchildren Gabriel, Zachery, Maciej and another Gabriel (and an ever-growing fleet of great-grandchildren), and her sons-in-law: Carl, George and Joe.

We will miss Diana as will the entire community who knew her. We especially thank the Yukon medical community who cared for her with patience and love no matter the difficulty she was experiencing.

Death came unexpectedly, we are still stunned and keep waiting for her to turn up but her life here is done and we are very sad.

Due to COVID restrictions we will have a small funereal on Saturday, November 20th. We will have a celebration of her life in the spring of 2022. If you wish to attend the funeral please call Eleanor at 1-250-978-9344.

There are people in life who make an indelible and lasting impression on those around them. Diana was one. I have great memories of her and Ken. Hard to believe that they are both gone. My condolences to her many friends and family. She will be missed.

Knowing Diana over many years has been a gift in my life.
Her creativity was truly inspiring from window painting during Rendezvous, to photography of Yukon scenes and seasons, to art and drawings there was always something beautiful to look at and discover with Diana.
Touring her garden was a delight as every flower was named and cared for. Tea and conversation with Diana was a real treat.
Over the many years and the many stories I have a whole library of memories to treasure.
Her many kindnesses and her spiritual presence will remain with me always.
Goodbye dear Diana
You will be deeply missed.
Love from Pam

Diana lives on in those who knew her, and received kindness from her - a very large number of folks! One small example - I understand she visited folks in Whitehorse Hospital for many years to encourage.
A very beautiful spirit now with God on God’s next adventure for her.
