Mary ‘Diane’ ‘Di’ (Hart) Hadley
1950-2021
Our hearts are broken with the loss of
our wife, sister, aunt and friend, Mary Diane (nee Hart) Hadley. Known
by all as Diane, or simply just « Di », she was born
in Boylston, to a large loving family of ten children, on July 21,
1950 to the late Earle and Jean Hart.
It was immediately evident from a
young age that Diane had three innate qualities that would last a
lifetime: a loving gentle soul; an adventurous spirit; and a love of
animals.
That adventurous spirit saw her leave
home, for a few years, to live and work in Halifax and Calgary but
returned to Boylston in 1972 to build her life. And what a life it
was!
She followed in her mother’s
footsteps and became a teacher at GMHS for 19 years. Like
all things in her life she gave her all to teaching. She was
devoted to her students and was so happy when they succeeded,
not only academically, but personally. She kept in touch
with many of them even after graduation. Not only was Diane a
teacher to her students but also to all who knew her. She taught us
all by example how to laugh, be creative, have fun, to find
happiness in the little things, to be kind and generous, and her last
teaching moment to be courageous and be brave.
In 1975 she married the love of her
life, Shawn Hadley. In some respects, they seemed
polar opposites but on the important points they were always
in sync. They travelled, spent time at their camp, and their
trailer at the beach. They raised many fur babies and especially loved
their black labs who were truly their children.
Diane forged many special friendships,
including the « Waah Girls » that she lived with in
Halifax and Calgary. They became lifelong friends that made a
commitment to have an annual reunion that has gone on for over 40
years – a weekend or longer with all of them together filled with
laughter and fun.
That same adventurous spirit would see
Diane become a world traveller; always seeking adventure and exploring
a new path wherever she went. She travelled many continents,
exploring as many of the off the beaten paths as she could with
friends and family including an African Safari with her husband Shawn,
and a Machu Picchu exploration to Peru with her brother
Jack. Her last trip was to NYC with her sister
Audrey, Niece Cindy, and Great Niece Lauren just days before our
entire world was put on lock down with the COVID 19
pandemic.
Diane always offered the best advice
and always knew what to say to make you feel better; to be in her mere
presence was soothing and reassuring. She was generous with her praise
and always offered a kind word and her gorgeous smile to everyone she
encountered. She loved laughter, music, good food, good wine, cute
shoes and could put an outfit together and look fabulous. But most of
all she loved the people she surrounded herself with and we will adore
her forever.
Although Diane did not have children
of her own, to many of her nieces and nephews, she was a second
mother. Her unwavering love, support and guidance were such a gift and
will remain a cherished memory.
Diane is survived by her devoted and
loving husband, Shawn, four-paws best friend and fur baby, Murphy
« Murphina »; sister Audrey (Sidney) MacPherson,
Manchester; brothers Jack (Regina) Hart, Guysborough; Kevin (Brenda)
Hart, Alberta. She was predeceased by brothers Eric, David, Gerald,
Bobby, Hazen, and sister Donna.
Special thanks to Dr. Barb Bell,
Allison Nickerson and the Palliative Care Team at Guysborough Memorial
Hospital, and Carmel Long with Continuing Care for all their
compassionate care.
Donations may be made to the
Guysborough Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Foundation.
Service to be held at a later date due
to Covid-19.
This is a
life.
This is a life well
lived.
This is a life well
loved.
This is a life that encouraged,
touched, taught and inspired so many.
This is a life that ended too
soon.
This is a life that will never
be forgoten.
