We Remember

WATTS, Lenise Marguerite

May 28, 1948 — June 30, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lenise “Nicee” at Kelowna Hospice. She was very brave throughout the curves that life presented to her. We are grateful that she passed peacefully without pain in her sleep. Days before she left us she had a dream that those who predeceased her; her mother Daphne, her father Leonard, and her loving brother Roger were waiting for her to join them. She will be missed by her sister-in law Sandra, her nephew Roger (Elizabeth), her niece Robyn (Mike), their mother Sandra (Gib), four great nieces and nephews: Alex, Madeleine, Taylor and Max, her cousin Penny in England, and by the wonderful ladies who provided so much love and care over her journey: Monica, Sharon, Shirley, Paige, Tracey, Amanda and Kim. Born in Lodi, California Lenise lived in many places throughout her life. She often reminisced about her childhood days growing up in Africa. She moved to Kelowna in 1998 and worked with her brother Roger in his law practice. Nicee loved her cats, movies, books, watching and playing golf, her garden, betting on horses, and was a big fan of the Kelowna Rockets. She will be remembered for her endless loyalty. Friends are invited to join the family in a celebration of Lenise’s life at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road in Kelowna at 10:00 am on Saturday, August 17, 2013.  In
lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Kelowna SPCA, 3785 Casorso
Road, Kelowna, BC V1W 4M7.   If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Share Your Condolences.”

    Lenise you were courageous throughout … and you will be missed… Heaven needed another angel. RIP Lenise

  • Jo-Ann Leskun says:

    I was shocked and dismayed when I heard the news of Lenise’s passing. I had known her since 1973 when we worked together at the Burnaby RCMP and renewed our friendship when I returned there about 1994 – in fact she recommended me to her supervisor position when she and her mom moved to Kelowna. Even though we didn’t regularly keep in touch, when we did communicate, it was as if no time had passed. I will miss having her in this world. My condolences to all who knew and loved her. She was always sunny and funny and had a great laugh.
