Evelyn Lapenskie

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we
announce the passing of Evelyn Lapenskie
(nee Sernoskie), loving wife of Xavier,
cherished mother of Glen (Teena), Lori (Barry),
Rebecca (Mike), Greg (Shelley), and treasured
grandmother of Sarah, Ryan, Hannah, Tyler,
Amber, Jacob, Brittney, Haley and Logan. Evelyn
passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by
her loving family on January 6, 2020, at the age of 75, after a long battle
with lung cancer. She was the most kind and caring person with a heart
of gold. She enjoyed spending her retirement baking, golfing and hunting
with her husband, card playing with her family and most of all, spending
every other minute with her cherished grandchildren. She will be missed
beyond belief. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 25th,
2020 from 1:00 – 4:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 406,
250 John Street, Barry’s Bay, Ontario. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that
you offer donations to the Madawaska Valley Hospice (of which Evelyn
was a kind-hearted volunteer) or the Canadian Cancer Society. And now,
“No time to cry, don’t shed a tear, I am with God, in spirit I am here…Keep
the faith, my spirit is light, I am at peace now, I fought a good fight.”
