LYSNE, Ingrid Ruth Renata
April 30, 1960 — January 20, 2018
April 30th, 1960 – January 20th, 2018
Ingrid Ruth Renata Lysne, 57. Our beloved mother and friend passed away peacefully on January 20th, 2018 surrounded by family. Her last days were spent at the Central Okanagan Hospice House. She and her family were thankful for the care she received from the wonderful staff there. Ingrid is survived by her children Evan and Anna Price, brother Tony Lysne, partner Mike Martel, and many amazing friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Margaret Ruth and Sverre Lysne.
Ingrid’s natural beauty, playful spirit, and humour will never be forgotten. If you were lucky enough to know her personally, there is a good chance that she played a practical joke on you or made you laugh. She was always ready to brighten other people’s days, and to make friends that would last a lifetime.
Born in Burnaby BC, Ingrid moved to Kelowna during the 60’s. She enjoyed skiing and dancing from an early age and was a talented highland dancer and ballerina. Later, she enjoyed raising her two children in Ontario, Chase, and finally, Kelowna. She taught them so much and always made sure their childhoods were full of magic. A truly supportive mother, she volunteered much of her time to supporting her children and their classmates’ extra curricular activities.
She lived her life by the golden rule, and with love. Through her battle with lung cancer, there were many ups and downs, but Ingrid remained strong and positive. Her family is comforted by thoughts of Ingrid growing beautiful gardens, baking delicious banana bread, and dancing happily in heaven, just like she did here.
