Diane Joy Das, age 91, of Nooksack, passed away at the Hospice House on Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019.
Diane was born on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, on Aug. 25, 1927. As a small child she moved with family to New York and then as a teenager to California. After graduating from high school, she was involved with singing and acting and knew many movie stars of her time. She married Fred Das on June 25, 1972. They moved to Lynden in 1994 after Fred retired.
Diane and Fred loved to travel and visited many countries, making friends along the way. Diane loved all animals, especially her cats. She loved to read, enjoyed her flowers and collecting objects from around the world.
Diane made friends everywhere she went and will always be remembered for her smile, caring ways, tea and cookies. Her joyful spirit will surely be missed.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Fred Das, and all her much-loved cats and dogs.
She is survived by her dearest friend, Joe Norton and wife Marie; cousin Monte Dauncey and wife Moira; and a host of friends.
Memorials may be made to the Whatcom Humane Society, 2172 Division St., Bellingham, WA 98226; or your favorite animal charity.
“Diane was the most interesting and fun-loving person to all that knew her!”
The memorial for Diane will be at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1, in Nooksack Christian Fellowship church, 201 Jackson St., Nooksack, in the fellowship hall. Her ashes will be interred in Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.
