She was born 1957 at Joe Batt’s Arm and came to Bur­geo, where she would serve for 33 years as a nurse, in 1977.

On March 21, a pic­ture of a very sweet lady, reg­is­tered nurse Diane ‘Decker’ Cos­sar, was placed in the Calder Health Care Cen­tre in her mem­ory.

She was al­ways re­ferred to by fam­ily, friends and co-work­ers as Decker.

She also worked as a nurse for a year in Al­berta and an­other year in Hal­i­fax.

Decker loved Bur­geo and was for years the emer­gency nurse of the hospital. She loved to care for the sick and her pa­tients loved the friendly nurse that was happy to give them all the help they needed.

She was loved by her pa­tients and co–work­ers as well.

Decker’s life ended just a short time ago af­ter a bat­tle with cancer. She was a big loss to the peo­ple of Bur­geo, who had a great love and re­spect for her.
