Diana Mary Wallace
Diana Mary Wallace,
age 81, passed away in Grand View Manor,
Berwick on April 17, 2021. Born in Bear
River, she was the only child of the late
O. Trueman
Wright and M. Eileen (Copeland) Wright. Diana
excelled in academics at Digby Regional
High School and at Teacher’s College in Truro. Always eager to learn,
she continued her education at Acadia University, she was a respected
teacher for nearly 35 years in the elementary schools of Yarmouth and
Kings County. While teaching in Kentville and New Minas, she taught
generations of fourth and fifth grade students. Even after she retired
from teaching, she continued to be involved with school children as a
pen pal to a new class every year, writing over 3000 letters in total.
For this, Diana received a Maritimer of the Week award.
Diana had a long history of involvement
with the Red Cross and was recognized for
her volunteer service. This included sponsoring Red Cross
at school and manning the sickroom loan
depot with Victor Forsythe. She was a
member of Orchard Valley United Church in New Minas for over 25 years,
where she served as an Elder. Diana was a
loyal friend to all and enjoyed all kinds of social
occasions. She loved playing cards,
visiting with family and friends,
travelling to see relatives in the US and
spending a
Christmas in the Dominican Republic with her son as well. She also
enjoyed Sunday drives around Kings County. Once she moved to Grand
View, her friends soon learned that they needed to plan phone calls
and visits around her busy schedule of puzzles, playing cards, crafts,
and recreation activities with her new friends. Diana had the best
memory for people and their special occasions; she sent out countless
numbers of cards to remember birthdays and anniversaries. She liked to
read, work on her genealogy, watch Jeopardy, and sing along with the
choirs on Gaither Gospel Hour and Time to Sing. Sidney Crosby was her
boy and the Pittsburgh Penguins were her team. She was a faithful
viewer! All of these things were
important, but for Diana being the « Best
Mother » was her #1 thing. She and
her son Ian shared a strong bond. Diana
was predeceased by her parents, former husband, David Wallace and
long-time companion Victor Forsythe. She is survived by her son, Ian
Wallace; cousin, Janet Copeland, other cousins and many friends.
Donations in memory may be made to the Nova Scotia Arthritis Society,

has taken place and burial will be in the Canard Burial Ground. A
Celebration of Life will be held at a later
