Longtime racing official Diane Twasnick passed away this morning (September 20) at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, ON after a brief battle with cancer. She was 59.

Diane’s career as a Race Secretary and Charter spanned more than three decades at Elmira Raceway, Grand River Raceway and Hanover Raceway.

Diane had a deep affinity for harness racing, and its horses and people. Beyond her astute skills and knowledge, she had a glowing smile, bright personality and fabulous sense of humour.

Her family will hold a private ceremony. Details of a Celebration Of Life are forthcoming.

Please join Standardbred Canada in offering condolences to the family and friends of Diane Twasnick.

Sincere condolences to Diane's family and friends. Very saddened to hear this news. I had the pleasure of knowing Dianne when racing at Elmira. She always had a smile on her face and was very friendly and accomodating. The industry has lost a very good person. May she rest in peace.
