Born October 26, 1943
Died November 14, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother Diane Edna Hauser, 79 years old, on the morning of November 14, 2022. After many years of recurring and problematic health issues, she decided that it was time she set herself off on her own journey.
She was born in Winnipeg on October 26, 1943 to Cyril and Nettie Mestdagh. She was predeceased by husband Jerry Hauser; her parents Cyril and Nettie; her siblings Donald (Dorothy) and Doreen.
Diane will be missed by her daughters Stacey (Bev) and Darlene (Sheldon); her grandson Porter and her sister Joan (Armand); sister-in-law Mildred and her nieces, nephews and their significant others.
Diane grew up in the West End of Winnipeg, where in her early teens she met her future husband Gerald (Jerry) Hauser. They dated for a few years going to Community Centre sock hops, hanging out with friends at Connie's Diner and meeting the gang at the North End YMCA to listen to the early Rock & Roll music of the Guess Who. At 21, she and Jerry married and started their new life together in a small house on College Avenue in which they spent their entire married life raising their family.
Diane's first love was reading, everything from History to Mystery. With her vast knowledge from all of the reading, she could travel around the Trivial Pursuit board with ease. Her other interests included old classic movies, dancing, 1950s and 1960s music, ceramics, following football and hockey on the radio and listening to Murder Mysteries on CJOB. She also enjoyed a good game of cards, needlepoint and going out with friends and family for dinner or coffee.
Our Mom, Diane, is going to be missed deeply and it is hard to encapsulate an entire life in just a few words. Through sharing fond memories and laughter Mom's life will forever live in the deepest chambers of all our hearts. Please share in our memories with your attendance at Glen Eden Funeral Home on Wednesday, November 23, 2022 at 2:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your charity of choice.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • So saddened to hear of Diane's passing. My condolences to the entire family. Diane was a sweet lady, whom I got to know through my brother's marriage to Darlene. The entire Hauser "clan" became family when they were married. She was always willing to have a good laugh and voice her thoughts on the "Jets" and how they were doing that year. I enjoyed spending my limited time with her, when we visited during family dinners etc. She will be missed. May God's open arms welcome you to heaven. - Posted by: Vernon Rybuck (Friend/Family) on: Nov 23, 2022

  • My memories go back to the early 1960's when I met Diane, my future Auntie, when I was a kid and she was dating Jerry Hauser, her first and only love. She used to babysit me and my brother Gary, playing outdoor games with us, keeping us busy. She and Uncle Jerry took us to see "A Hard Day's Night" at the North Main Drive In and we loved being with them, and surprisingly they behaved themselves that night! Uncle Jerry had a car by then but I can still see her riding on the back of his Triumph motorcycle. I remember their wedding night and all the fun I had dancing. Nine months later their first born daughter, Stacey, was born. They were a fun and loving couple. One day she pulled out her Elvis Presley records for me to see and play. She kept them in the attic but she was a true Elvis fan. They tried for years to have another child and finally Darlene was born. That completed the family along with their dogs. Dogs were always an important part of her family. As well as being an avid reader Auntie Diane was very artistic and made many beautiful ceramic pieces in classes that I attended with her, mom and Auntie Adeline. Every Christmas Eve Auntie Diane and Uncle Jerry invited the family to their small house on College Avenue. No matter how many of us there were, there was always enough room to squeeze in to enjoy our meatless dinner of fried breaded pickerel and perogies with gravy followed by several kinds of Xmas dainties. We all enjoyed a good time with good food, family, friends, laughter and singing. I still cherish those times and my love for her will never end. Her dedication to her girls and especially to Uncle Jerry was especially beautiful. May your memories and love keep her close forever. - Posted by: Karen Martin (Niece) on: Nov 19, 2022
