Dianne Marline Burk

Dianne Marline Burk passed away at Bastion Place, Salmon Arm, BC on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at the age of 70 years.

Dianne was born in Williams Lake, BC on December 21, 1943. She had been a long time resident of Salmon Arm and had owned and operated Bill’s Bottle Depot. She enjoyed her wide variety of friends, that she had met throughout her life, involving horses, cards, bowling, travelling and work. The coffee pot was always on and she was able to set a feast on the table at any given time. Her new home was “my little gem” and she had plans to create a haven for friends and family gatherings. She was creating this haven but her poor health stopped her.

Dianne is survived by her son, Duane (Bev) Burk of Sorrento, two grandchildren, Cameron and Samantha; two great grandchildren, Jada and Kade Mayall; sisters, Ruby Smith, Juanita Mayfield, Judith Kinloch, Geraldine Stanfill and Jeanette Shields; numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her daughter, Sam Jess in 2010 and son, Richard “Chip” Harwood in 2002.

A celebration of Dianne’s life will be held from the chapel of Bowers Funeral Home on Wednesday, August 27th, at 10:30 am with Capreece Bowers, celebrant. Interment will follow in the Tappen Community Cemetery.
