We met Diana only recently and were charmed by her engaging personality, enthusiasm, creative mind and exciting projects. We are truly shocked and saddened to learn of Diana’s death – it seems impossible – she was so full of life.
Our heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends who were fortunate to have known her for much longer than we.
Diana and David Nicholson (Westmount, QC)


Officials won’t say if sign was broken before fatal crash

Reports suggest illuminated panel could have been malfunctioning

Did Diana Clarke rely on a flashing sign that proclaimed “Entrée II” instead of “Entrée interdite” when she drove her vehicle onto the Ville Marie Expressway in the wrong direction early Monday?
The Quebec Transport Department refused to give details yesterday that might help explain how the 45-year-old Montreal woman took a catastrophic wrong turn onto an exit ramp and died in a head-on collision minutes later.
Nor did the Sûreté du Québec, which is investigating the accident, issue any comment.
Media reports suggest the illuminated sign was not working properly …

Woman killed after driving wrong way on Ville Marie expressway
MONTREAL ­ A woman who was driving the wrong way on the Ville Marie Expressway was killed just after midnight Monday morning when her car was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle.
According to the Sûreté du Québec, the 45-year-old Montreal woman was driving west on the eastbound lanes of Highway 720 east after mistakenly using the Guy St. exit as an entrance.
The sign warning motorists not to enter had been partially burned out for several days. The woman made it as far as the merger with Highway 15 before her vehicle collided with another vehicle. The driver of that car, a man in his 20s, suffered minor injuries.

    I met Diana as a student at John Abbott College. She was gentle and kind, yet ever ambitious. I was intrigued by her and visited with her at her home in Ste-Anne. She visited me at Montreal. Soon after my experience lead me to work and a life back in the U.S. In 2007, given the advent of social networking, I casually decided to look for some of the people who had meant something to me, and I found Diana. We spoke for hours on the phone. Finally back in northern California, and once again trying to find her, I just learned of her tragic death. I am so sorry. I believe she was a truly remarkable person and I wish we could have known each other better. I think she is a reminder to all of just how precious life is. Peace to Diana.
