Myrna Leone KONDAS

June 9, 1942 – September 16, 2015

A vivacious woman, Leone passed away at home on the

morning of September 16, with her loving children and her partner in crime by her side. Born in Penticton, BC to

Russell and Georgie Jordan, the family followed her big brother Larry to the big city, where they settled in New Westminster. Attending New West Secondary School, it wasn’t long after her graduation that she was snapped up by the love of her life John. They were married in 1963.

Shortly after, their children, Nena and Ward, entered the

picture to throw a curve ball into the wonderful life they built and introduced color and character into their 52 year love affair.

When they were certain the kids could survive on their own, they moved to Qualicum Beach where Leone created a life rich with friendship, adventure, and joy, with her doting husband by her side. A woman of strength and sensitivity, her uproarious laughter and electric smile brightened our lives and will remain in our hearts. Rippy finally turned 40.

Leone is survived by John Kondas; daughter, Nena (James Henriksen) and Ward (Erin Haskett); and her four grandchildren, Kia, Zoe, Zak, and Vivian.

A Service was held at 2:00 pm St Stephens Church

in Qualicum Beach, BC on Friday, September 18, 2015.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Oceanside Hospice in Leone’s memory. The family is grateful to the home care nurses and doctors who made it possible for Leone to die at home.
