My condolences to the family and friends of Diane Johnson Williams. Diane passed away in Dartmouth NS on March 28th. Many of us knew Diane as Tvor and author of Bluenose Corrie Blog. Tvor, I found out, stands for “The Voice of Reason.” That is what she was for her fellow Coronation Street bloggers and friends, according to a tribute on Coronation Street Blog. Diane was co-editor of that blog, which follows the British air time.
I knew her only from her Bluenose Corrie Blog. She wrote it for us, her fellow Canadian fans. With a new post almost every day, and a weekly summary, I enjoyed reading it and checked in regularly. Seeing no new posts for a while, I started wondering. Googling her, I learned the very sad news of her death at the age of 59.
Diane was a long time and very knowledgeable viewer of Coronation Street. She knew not only about story and character history, but also the production side of it. An important part of the Canadian and British Coronation Street community, she shared her knowledge and love for the show both online and in real life.
Bluenose Corrie Blog still has a wealth of information about the show. You can read more about Diane’s history as a Coronation Street fan, her photography, travelogues and photography on The Voice of Reason.
The tribute to Diane written by Glenda is here, as well as her obituary. She will be greatly missed by us all.
