Lucy Patricia Whittam passed away peacefully on April 14, 2012, at her home in Nanaimo, BC. We wish to celebrate the life of a woman embodied with a passionate spirit, a sense of optimism, loyalty and love, a terrific sense of humour, and a soul full of joy, song and laughter. We saw this spirit of Lucy in her love, her compassion, and as a loyal wife to her devoted husband of 60 years, Jack; we saw this spirit of Lucy as a mother in her unwavering devotion and dedication to her three daughters: Catherine (Kim) Brunt, Brenda (Pat) Whittam-Neary, and Leslie Anne (Brian) Whittam-Carlyle; we saw this spirit of Lucy as Nana in her resolute and unremitting love to her grandchildren: Ryan, Sheldon, Seamus, Sinead, Roisin and Siobhan; we saw this spirit of Lucy in her dedication to her three sisters; and we saw this spirit of Lucy in her devotion and loyalty to her friends that she held so very dear to her heart. Her optimism, passion and love of music will always be cherished and remembered. Please join us in sharing memories and celebrating
Lucy’s life on May 4th, promptly at 1:00 p.m., at the Nanaimo Golf and Country Club.
Lucy was so very proud of her Celtic heritage:
May the road rise up to greet you,
May the wind always be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall soft upon your fields,
And when we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
…and find you a good bridge partner!!
