VAN OENE, Kelley

April 28, 1962 – August 2, 2017

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kelley on August 2, 2017. Kelley is survived by her daughters, Kristin (Doug) and Courtney (Doug); her beloved grandchildren Shayla and Halle; brothers Chuck, Jim (Linda) and Shawn (Angie); sisters Merle, Susan and Fawnna (Jim); as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her mother Marie in 2008 and her father John in 1999. Kelley was born in Kindersley, Saskatchewan on April 28, 1962. She married the girls’ Dad in 1978 and they raised their two girls in the Tilley and Duchess areas. Kelley relocated to Lethbridge in 2006 and worked for Extendicare where she made a huge circle of friends. In 2013, Kelley moved to Strathmore to be closer to her grandbabies. She worked for Bayshore Home Health until she became ill in April. Her clients loved her like family because she treated them as such.  Kelley had a smile that would light up a room and a gift to make others laugh and see the humour in any situation. She left an impression everywhere she went with her kind heart and contagious laugh. Her two beautiful granddaughters were her world and she was so proud to be their Nan.  A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at Hope Community Covenant Church at 11:00 a.m. Donations in Kelley’s memory may be made directly to Rosedale Hospice (920 7a St NW, Calgary, AB T2M 3J4).
