Lyisla Lynn Demchuk
It is with regret that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Lyisla Lynn Demchuk, at her home on May 7, 2007, at the age of 42 years. Lyisla was born at Winnipeg, MB, on November 27, 1964 and had lived in the valley for 10 years. She was strongly committed to the community through Big Brothers and Sisters, Winter Carnival, Power House Theatre, Art Center and many other organizations. Lyisla loved being a character actor, enjoyed Film Festivals, cars, boating and will be remembered for her sense of humour, her lavish laugh, that everyone found contagious, and her very big heart. Lyisla will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her family, husband John of Vernon; sister Teneille (Sean) Higgins of Cumberland, BC; mother and stepfather Fay and Jim Cipriani of N. Fort Myers, Florida. She will also be remembered and loved by extended family and many friends. By family request a celebration of Lyisla’s life will be held at a later date and will be formerly announced at that time.
