September 2, 1966 – April 27, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Connie Van Nes on April 27, 2019.
Connie was born in Terrace, BC on September 2, 1966 and moved with her family to the Comox Valley in 1975. She graduated from G.P. Vanier Secondary School in Courtenay in 1984. After medical training in Nanaimo, she moved to Victoria where she began her career at LifeLabs. She transferred to the Duncan lab and has worked with the company for over 30 years.
She married Rod Van Nes in Victoria on Valentines Day 1992. She is survived by her husband Rod and two sons James & Justin, her parents Jack and Marilyn Lyons, her brother David Lyons, and mother-in-law Jean Van Nes.
She was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter and friend and will be missed by all who knew her. She loved her family, her pugs, and gardening in her peaceful back yard. In summer at dusk she would sit and watch the “light show” begin with her collection of pretty solar lights.
There will be no service by request, but a Celebration of Life with family and friends will be held at a later date.
