COE, Elisa Sharree (nee Detlor)
With great sadness, after a long and courageous battle with cancer, we announce the peaceful passing of Lisa Coe on April 12, 2011 at the age of 31. Lisa is survived by her loving husband Ian; her son Austin; her mom and dad, Julie and Darcy Detlor; her sister Katie (Virginia) and her brother Simon; her much loved close family, and many, many friends. She will be lovingly remembered by all the many lives she touched. From the time when she was first diagnosed at the age of 20, Lisa was always worried about everyone else more than herself. The way she battled was an incredible inspiration to hundreds of people who met her. The family would like to send a special thanks to Doctors Fisher, Mace, Fyles, Jefferies, Naito, and Bakala. A special thank you goes out to the incredible staff at the Cancer Clinic and the Central Okanagan Hospice House. There are too many good people at both places to list. Also, to her home care nursing team, especially Janice, and all of the palliative nurses. All of these people made her journey so much easier. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, April 23 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. If you come to the Celebration, please feel free to bring your favourite picture of Lisa. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lisa Coe’s name to the Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6.
