In loving memory ~
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Lise Kennedy, on January 27, 2023 at 85 years of age. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend, loved by all who knew her.
She was born and raised in Quebec in a lumberjack camp. While living in Montreal, she met the love of her life, Mervyn Kennedy, a recent immigrant from Belfast. They followed their dreams of travelling to Europe with their two children in a Volkswagen van for an extended time. She moved to Victoria in the early 70’s, where they purchased and ran a hardware store and later a Variety store and post office, finally retiring in Nanaimo in 2001.
Lise was a practical, industrious, woman who loved to work with her hands. She was very creative and had a genuine passion for all living things. Known as a kind and generous person, she shared the bounties of her garden and preserves with many.
Predeceased by her husband of 49 years, she leaves behind her daughter Linda (Howard), son Stephen (Rebecca) and grandchildren Daniel and Alexander, along with nieces and nephews.
Forever in our hearts.
Following Lise’s wishes, there will be no ceremony, instead please plant a seed in her honour.
