    Claire and Brody, I don’t have the words to express my thoughts on your profound loss. Liesle was amazing and she impacted so many live in a positive way. I will always cherish our endless talks in high school and all the laughs we shared on our sports trips. She was my biggest cheerleader when I felt down. Claire, I hope that your memories will be the light in this darkest of times. Lean on those close to you – they are there to help.

  • Tyler Foxcroft says:

    Liesle helped shape who I am, what I believe and how I act today. My heart is filled with absolute sorrow. All my best to Claire, Brody, Ryan & Kyle.

  • Jan Wimberly - Edmonton Alberta says:

    To the Young and Paterson family. My prayers are with all of you during this time of life that is so hard for us left behind. “Some people think it’s holding on that makes us strong…..Sometimes it is letting go.” Rest in peace Liesle. Hugs to all of you. Love Jan

  • Leeann Warner says:

    Liesle helped make me a better person. She inspired me to work hard and try harder at sports and school.
    We had the best sports trips. So many laughs. I was able to room with some of the best people I’ve ever know.
    I’ll miss you my friend…..and know I loved you for just being you.
    On to a new adventure now.

  • Andrew Latham says:

    Claire, I am so sorry for your loss, I want you to know that you are in my thoughts. Your friend Andrew.

  • Lisa Murray says:

    Claire – John and I can’t begin to understand what you are going through. If you need some quiet time, Torson would love a play date with Brody. Liesle’s personality shone through during the years playing sports against her in PG and finally reconnecting and playing on the same soccer team together here in Kelowna. I will miss her. Hugs from the Murray family.

  • Uncle Rick says:

    I feel like I should have so much to say about my exceptional niece Liesle but I can’t get the words out. She meant more to me than anyone will ever be able to understand.
    I loved Liesle so very much and will miss her forever just as I continually miss every day the passing of my sister and parents.

  • Murray Panagrot says:

    I was deeply saddened to find out this morning about Liesle’s passing. I only knew her for a couple of years but the help she gave me will last my lifetime. My sincerest condolences go to her family and friends at this difficult time.

  • Blaine Dickson says:

    To Liesle’s family,

    I am shocked and in disbelief about Liesle’s passing. My wife and I worked with Liesle over a number of years where she helped us and my son cope with many issues related to his autism. She was professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, and genuine in her care for my son and us. Every time we stepped in her office, she always had this maternal quality that made you feel comfortable and at ease. We shared many laughs, too.

    What makes me most sad is that she left her practice before we had an opportunity to say thank you for her hard work and dedication. One of the issues we were working on with my son finally resolved itself in 2015 after many years, and we never had a chance to inform her that we were successful and her help and efforts paid off. I hope she knows how much we appreciated what she did for us. We are forever grateful.

    Thank you, Liesle. May you continue to find love and fulfilment wherever you are.

    With much love and respect,

    Blaine, Sue, Keaton and Emerson

    May the wonderful memories of the kind,caring, compassionate individual that Liesle was help you through this time of sorrow.
    Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers
