Obituary of Diane Kostesky
Diane Lynn Kostesky (nee Kuzina) In the early morning of October 25, 2008, Diane went peacefully to be with the Lord at her home. Diane Kostesky was born June 14, 1958, the middle daughter of John and Iris Kuzina of Winnipeg Manitoba. Diane was raised in Winnipeg until 1982 when she moved to Calgary were she made her home. While growing up she attended Miles Macdonell Collegiate then graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Commerce degree (honours). She met and married Vincent Kostesky on September 16, 1995 and they were blessed with their daughter, Amber Lynn, born August 19, 1997. For most of her blessed life, Diane was very active in sports and social activities, always ready to organize the next function. Unfortunately, sickness struck her in 1996 and then she fought a courageous battle with cancer since 2000. Throughout this ordeal, she not only strengthened her faith, but impacted her family, friends and associates with her bravery and steadfastness, always ready to extend a helping hand to family, friends and neighbours. She was an active member of the New Jubilee Christian Centre of Calgary where she leaves behind many dear friends and prayer partners. May God Bless Every One of Them. She leaves to cherish her loving memory and to mourn her passing, her husband Vince and daughter Amber of Calgary, mother Iris Kuzina of Winnipeg, sister Jan Kuzina of Toronto; sister Debbie (Ed), niece Jessica and nephew Ryan Suchorab, all of Saskatoon. She was predeceased by her father, John Kuzina in Winnipeg a day earlier and her mother in law Frances Kostesky, of Rossburn, MB on August 25, 2008. Peacefully sleeping, resting at last, The world's weary trouble and trials are past, In silence she suffered, in patience she bore, Till God called her home to suffer no more.
