It is with our deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, Constance Mary-Ann (Connie) Lean in her 97th year, while residing in Dunrovin Park Lodge Quesnel BC, after a lengthy illness. Mother entertained the nurses, staff and residents with her unique sense of humour and spontaneous singing. She will be sadly missed by all.
When we are sad and lonely,
and everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on.”
Each time we see you in a photo,
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry, I’m only sleeping
we’ll meet again someday.”
Connie is survived by one sibling Elaine (Syd) Miles, many nephews and nieces, children Harry, Edna (Pat) Ryan, Shirley, Marlene (Vic), 28 grandchildren, 37 great grandchildren and 10 great, great grandchildren.
Connie was predeceased by her husband Theodore Lean, sibling Kathleen, brother-in-law Corey, sons Raymond, Gerald and daughter Mona and 4 grandchildren.
Thank you to Dr. J. Dercksen for all her ongoing care of mother over the years. A special thanks to the staff at Dunrovin for all the wonderful care that you gave mother. Your kindness will always be remembered.
Connie Lean, wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, friend, you will always be loved and remembered.
Interment to follow in the spring in Gibsons, BC.
