Diane Carol Komarnisky

(August 29, 1941 - January 10, 2021)


Diane Carol Komarnisky of Daysland, Alberta, passed away on Sunday, January 10, 2021, at the age of 79 years.

Diane attended Unity school in her early years and finished high school in Bruce. She married Lawrence Komarnisky in 1960.  They had one son Dean in 1969.  Dean and Jo Ann were married in 1990 and they had two sons Preston in 1990 and Brandon in 1993.  Diane was married for 55 years until Lawrence passing in 2016. 

Diane and Lawrence lived on a farm south of Holden for 44 years when she worked off the farm in Holden.  First for the Creamery and then 26 years for the Royal Bank until her retirement in 1996.  After working those years, she stayed home and helped with moving Lawrence and Dean from field to field and making what she called “meals on wheels”.  In that time, she got two grandsons that meant more to her than life itself.  Her favorite time was being a part of helping raise them boys by babysitting and later hauling them to hockey practice and games.  In February 2003 Lawrence and Diane retired to Daysland.  Diane spent her time at the drop-in center, visiting friends for coffee, and helping with meals on wheels.

In March 2018 Diane moved to Providence Place in Daysland where she got a burst of energy to enjoy life again with people of her own age.  Diane will always be remembered for her need to always be dressed to the nines with her hair done up as well.  She also spent time traveling and shopping.

Left to cherish her memory are her son Dean (Jo Ann) Komarnisky of Holden; grandsons Preston (Denita) and Brandon (Rachel); best friend Virginia Chupka. Diane was predeceased by her husband Lawrence; parents Joseph and Mary Sroka; and brother Melvin Sroka.


Due to Alberta health regulations, a private family service was held.
