LYSNE, Ingrid Ruth Renata

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.
A Celebration of Life will be held on April 29th, 2018 from 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm - please email [email protected] or phone 587-223-2596 for details.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ingrid’s name to The Kelowna Gospel Mission, www.kelownagospelmission.ca. She always said, “Sometimes it only takes one person to believe in another and to give them a chance.”

    Mike, Anna & Evan,
    I am so sorry to hear of Ingrid's passing. Mike and my partner Pat were long time friends and we met Ingrid through Mike. We liked her immediately, always laughing and her love of animals was apparent on that first meeting. One special memory was they came to my family home for a party and my brother was serving a large venison roast. We knew Ingrid as a vegetarian so when she asked my brother what the meat was and then began to have a good chow down on it, we were surprised. But the animal lived its life the way it was meant too and she was the first person we had met that explained that point of view to us. We had a piper at my partner's celebration of life a year and a half ago and Ingrid and my cousin found out they both were highland dancers in the past and they leaped onto the lawn and gave us all a wonderful highland fling. Ingrid, I will always remember you with love and a smile, your spirit was infectious.
    All my love, Heather Thompson

    I had met Ingrid when I was landscaping for Personalize Garden Care. We had many, many good laughs and just looked forward to going to work to see what Ingrid had up her sleeve for the day. Such a lovely spirit she had and we all enjoyed her. I had the pleasure of meeting Evan and Anna and saw their mom's spirit in them, great kids. So sorry this has happened to her and to the family, may she soar above us with her magical soul.
    RIP Ingrid, from Shelley Ehman

    I am so sorry Tony, to hear of Ingrid's death, we first met Ingid as a waitress at
    Jakx in Kelowna, enjoyed interacting with her and getting to know her. Then she and her mother moved in next door, in sunrise Village. May her children's memories keep Ingrid close in their hearts, she will be a new angel watching down on us and encouraging our gardens to grow!
