Dates of existence



Diana Lemire was born in Rouyn, Quebec in 1943. She met her future husband Allan Savidant (b. 1944) in Ottawa where he was employed with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. In 1973 the couple moved to his home community of Summerside, Prince Edward Island where she taught art and honed her skills as a painter and he worked as business superintendent of the local school district. Diana Lemire Savidant’s works were displayed at various exhibitions and many pieces were sold to individuals across Canada and the United States, with her husband acting as her business manager. A major exhibit of her paintings of local heritage buildings held at the Eptek National Exhibition Centre in 1992 was titled “Of Merchant, Fox, and Sail.” Most of the pieces were later donated to the Prince County Hospital Foundation and were put on displayed at the new Prince County Hospital that opened in 2004. Another major exhibit in which both Savidants were involved was “Spirit of the Light” held in Summerside in 1995. Diana Savidant died suddenly in 1994, but Mr. Savidant and the other artists participating in the project carried it to completion.
