Diane Learning

March 14, 1947 to May 11, 2022


It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of our mother and grandmother, Diane Marie Learning, in her 75th year.

Predeceased by her parents, Mary and Jack Learning; brothers, Keith Learning, Paul Learning, Wade Learning, and Brian Learning.

Leaving to mourn her son Andrew Ramsay (Michelle); daughter Amy Ramsay (Aaron Ploof); son Matthew Ramsay; grandchildren Ethan Ramsey and Chloe Ramsay; brother Gary Learning (Susan); brother Dale Learning (Winnie); sister Brenda Warren (Pat); sister Debbie Ryan (Paul); sister Linda Gulliver (Errol); and sister Karan Kennedy (Johnny).

Diane received her machinist certification in 1986, making her one of the few women at this time with that qualification. She then went on to work at MUN’s Technical Services Department making models of upcoming projects. She retired after 25 years of service. Diane had two beautiful grandchildren whom she adored. In her spare time she loved knitting, needlepoint, and keeping up with current world events. Diane had an uncanny ability of remembering her family’s history, and those stories will be forever missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Dianne’s passing and wish to offer my most sincere condolences. I enjoyed working with Diane at Tech Services and hope she he enjoyed her retirement years.

Gary….I just learned of your terrible lose and a little piece of my heart has been taken away. I am so sorry!
I am going back a long ways, to St. George’s School where Diane and I met. It was a BFF and no one had fun like us. We had some great stories!!!
I remember her sweet children but they were too small to remember me.
We did see each other a few times over the years but not enough and how you regret that…when it is too late.
Diane might not have been in sight in the latter years but she was surely quite often, in my mind.
Hugs to the whole family…. I feel your pain….I have been there.
From: Diane’s forever, loving friend
