As an active Union Representative, she advocated ardently for equal pay and workers’ rights until her retirement after over 25 years of dedicated service. “Lady Di”, as she was affectionately known by family and friends, “or Mama D” to her grandchildren was one of few who still cherished the lost art of writing and regularly hand wrote letters to her children and grandchildren.
