Diane Mizue Lyseng

January 28, 1944 — June 28, 2024

Calgary, Alberta

Diane, beloved mother of Stephan and Kari, passed away suddenly at home, in Calgary, Alberta on Friday, June 28, 2024.

Diane was born on January 28, 1944 in Tashme, British Columbia to Hatsu and Kazuichi Shimozawa. She was the youngest of nine children. Her family left internment in 1946 and immigrated to southern Alberta, where they worked on multiple farms. From there the family moved to Lethbridge where Diane attended high school. 

Diane left Lethbridge for a life in the big city of Calgary. She married Gary Lyseng in 1965. Their daughter, Kari was born in 1970 and son, Stephan in 1972. Diane lived for her children; providing support and care to them always. She had a special bond with her only grandson Oren and it would be fair to say that he was her favorite person in the universe. 

Diane believed that no orphan should be alone on a holiday and no one should go hungry and as the result, she has a multitude of people who perceive her as their second Mom. She possessed an uncanny talent for crochet and frequently made afghans for the latest bride or new mom. Diane also had a legendary stink eye that would strike fear into the most hardened of individuals.

She worked for many years in office administration and in 2000 she and Stephan started their own business; Ironwill Tattoo. They drove this business for 13 years until she retired. 

At Diane's request, there will be no service.

Diane has the highest Cookie Jam level achievement, higher than anyone's ever seen.
