WHELDRAKE, Diane Patricia It is with sadness that the family of Diane Patricia Wheldrake (nee Monaghan) announce her passing, after a long illness, at The Rekai Centre in Toronto on April 8, 2019, at the age of 82. Diane was born in Schumacher on May 11, 1937, and moved to Toronto in 1962, where she met Murray Jack Wheldrake. They married in Schumacher on August 7, 1965, by Flying Father Les Costello. They settled in the then-new Toronto suburb of Don Mills, where Diane went on to reside for 52 years. After raising her 4 kids, Diane returned to paid work as a Legal Assistant at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Law, from 1984 until she retired in 2002. Diane will be remembered for her sociability, sense of humour, green thumb, and commitment to off-leash dog walking. Diane was the daughter of Mary & Earl Monaghan, the sister of James Monaghan, the wife of Murray Jack Wheldrake, and the mother of Peter Wheldrake (all deceased). She is survived by children Sean (Heather), Lesley (Stephen), Mark (Julie), and by grandchildren Charlotte, Brodie, Erika, Kylie, Kenzie, Oscar, Tess, Flynn and Lily.

Dear Shawn, Leslie and Mark

Am very sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I would be her second cousin and was also born and raised in Schumacher. I was young when left but saw her a couple of times when she would return to Timmins and remember her sense of humour well. Big hugs to all of you. Take dare.
