Diane Lorenz

May 2, 1934 - June 7, 2024

Passed peacefully on her own terms at Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice on Friday June 7, 2024, Diane Lorenz (nee Scarrow) at 90 years of age. Beloved wife, for 68 years, of the late Ed Lorenz. Loving mother of Peter (Denise). Gram of Nicholas (Trisha) and Alexandria (Mat) and GG of Lukas and Aurora. Special and beloved Aunt of Fran (Dan) Grey. Pre deceased by her siblings Dawna Sloan (Jack), Davine Rogers (Harry), and Dannie Scarrow (Sylvia)
Predeceased by her parents Oscar Edwin & Augusta Wilhelmina (nee Smith)

Mom, Gram, GG was immensely proud of our small but mighty family always cheering us on in whatever events came our way.

Diane will be lovingly remembered by her Buckshot Lake cottage, Maui and Dunnville friends.
Beloved member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority chapter for 56 years.

Past Chairman of the Board of Cobourg Hospital that transitioned the merger of Cobourg/Port Hope hospitals to realize the Northumberland Hills Hospital.

Together Diane & Ed founded Lorenz & Son Manufacturing though many sacrifices, hard work and diligence they proudly watched it grow to the success it is today.

Diane along with Ed were extremely proud to be able to support the building of Eds House, in her own words……
“Ed and I believe that people deserve to die with dignity – no matter what walk of life they come from. Death is not always happy or easy,
Hospice care is good for the present and future generations – it may even help change the attitude towards death and dying.”
How fitting Mom was able to spend her last days there. Comfortable and content!
Our family would like to express thanks and gratitude to Amanda Tiexeria, the staff at Rosewood especially Brenna Davis, staff of Northumberland Hills Hospital and the amazing staff at Ed’s House.

Aloha!!!

When I told her I would be sad, in true Diane form she quickly said “snap out of it….think about all the good times and laughs we shared”. I’m trying to do that but sorry Diane, I’m still sad.
