Our condolences to Charlene Neuman and the Neuman family on the sudden but peaceful passing of Charlene’s mother, Patricia Lee, yesterday (Friday, January 31, 2014) after a lengthy illness. Anyone who encountered Patricia was blessed by her grace, gentle spirit, compassion and care. In her year-long stay in hospital, her spirit remained undiminished as she reached out to her roommates and anyone else who crossed her path. We are comforted, knowing she is with her Lord and Saviour, sharing stories over a hot bowl of soup.

We extend our prayers to Charlene, Dale, David and Laura Beth. We also pray for Charlene’s father, Raymond, and her sister Verlisa and family. May the Lord be a comfort to the families at their time of loss.

Details of visitation and funeral will be announced soon, with the funeral being held at Westheights Community Church (82 Westheights Drive, Kitchener, ON).
