Obituary of Diny (Diane) Henrietta Anderson
November 19, 1953 - Calgary, Alberta
November 12, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta
Diane Anderson went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, November 12, 2022, with her family by her side.
Diane was a beautifully unique person who had a heart for family and anyone in need. She always encouraged others and had a deep empathy for those in pain. She had many health problems in her life and faced them all with a desire to stay close to God and to model faith to all she came in contact with.
Diane’s family would like to acknowledge and thankfully praise the legions of health care workers who ministered to Diane through the years. We are truly blessed to have them. Diane saw them as people God loved, and often she would be more invested in trying to know them, than in dealing with the medical issues at hand.
Diane had a rich and wonderful life grounded in her faith and her Dutch heritage. She was a true prayer warrior, and she had a deep knowledge of Scripture through her devotional life, which was a number one priority for her. She was deeply committed to her three daughters and their husbands, and to her eight grandchildren.
She is survived by her husband, Don; her three daughters and sons-in-law, Melissa (Jason), Becky (Cameron), and Katie (Jared); and her eight grandchildren, Ava, Chloe, Taylor, Jude, Keira, Emma, Addison, and Sullivan. She is also survived by her mother, Linda Byma-Mackie, and her siblings, Gary Byma, Lyn Kocher, and Pat Hibbert.
She was predeceased by her father, Fritz, and sister, Brenda. Diane was also predeceased by her stepfather, Lloyd Mackie.

It is written in 2 Corinthians, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
