Diana Sylvia Home (nee Adam), 4 September 1944 - 19 June 2022


I am writing with the sad news that our mother, Diana, died early on the morning of Sunday 19 June.


For those who may not have known, Di had been undergoing treatment for cancer through the course of 2022. Sadly, the treatment affected her badly and she had a very difficult few months with a number of hospital admissions. However, she had returned home where she died peacefully with her three children at her side, having received support from the wonderful team at Rennie Grove Hospice Care. She was very courageous, her faith sustained her and we believe she will be reunited with our dad, Gos, who died just two years ago.


We will be holding a memorial service at 2pm on Tuesday 12 July at St Mary's Church, Princes Risborough followed by a reception at the Risborough Community Centre (details below). The memorial service will be preceded by a private family burial.


Everyone is warmly invited to remember Di and celebrate her life. The service will be streamed online and we will circulate a link closer to the time.


If you would like to make a donation in her memory, gifts can be made through St Mary's Church towards three development charities and St Mary's itself (please see below). No flowers please.


With our thanks and best wishes,


Oliver, Emily and Viola


P.S. Please do share this news with others. We have gone through her contacts but not everyone has email addresses and she had a wide circle of friends, many of whom we did not know. There will be announcements in the Times and the Telegraph on Saturday 25 June. If you have received this in error, I apologise.
