Diana Price
Our dear friend Diana Price died from leukaemia on 19 December 2017, following several years battling cancers.

Her former colleagues in the Canada/Morocco Board Office, where she worked from 1992-1999, said Diana was a great friend to everyone who passed through the office. Many of her expressions will stay with them forever – if somebody was “a waste of rations” or she would “have their guts for garters” you sensed that she didn't have too high an opinion of them.

They remember Diana's elegance, her striking beauty, and her great warmth. She was the keystone and enduring element of the Canada/Morocco team and did much to help the rude Canadians who turned up in the office adjust to English life and ways. Like any good PA, she ran the office while letting the rest of them think they were in charge.

Leaving the EBRD and moving to Somerset did not mean early retirement for Diana. It was only years later that she stopped work and even then carried on lending a hand or two to former business associates. She never forgot her years with the Bank and regularly attended the alumni meetings. She also returned for a couple of Annual Meeting assignments in Belgrade and Tashkent and, as usual, was superb at handling the job.

Everyone who knew her will agree that she was a true friend and a lovely person, always cheerful with a great sense of humour, fun, warm, generous and enthusiastic with an enormous zest for life. Diana was always glass half-full and amazingly positive with an incredible ability to carry on without complaining no matter what obstacles and heartaches life threw at her.

Diana's courageous approach to her illness and her ability to continue living life to the fullest possible until the end was and is a real inspiration to all who knew her.

Diana was, like Concorde, First Class all the way. We will miss you.
