Connie Elizabeth Van Nes

September 2, 1966 - April 27, 2019


Connie Elizabeth Van Nes

Sept 2, 1966 – April 27, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Connie Elizabeth Van Nes on April 27, 2019.

Connie was born in Terrace, BC on September 2, 1966 and moved with her family to the Comox Valley in 1975. She graduated from Vanier Secondary School in Courtenay in 1984. After medical training in Nanaimo, she moved to Victoria where she began her career at LifeLabs. She transferred to the Duncan lab and has worked with the company for over 30 years.

She married Rod Van Nes in Victoria on Valentines Day, 1992. She is survived by her husband, Rod, and two sons, James & Justin, her parents Jack and Marilyn Lyons, her brother, David Lyons, and mother-in-law Jean Van Nes.

She was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter and friend and will be missed by all who knew her. She loved her family, her pugs, and gardening in her peaceful back yard. In summer at dusk she would sit and watch the “light show” begin with her collection of pretty solar lights.

There will a Celebration of Life on Saturday June 15, 2019 at 11:00am, 3203 Gilana Place, Duncan B.C.

So hard to believe it was 16 years ago that we became co workers and then best buddies. I will miss all our talks, pedicures, manicures and lunches. I will miss you, my friend.

Connie will be greatly missed by her LifeLabs family. Thinking of you at this sad time.

It is such a great loss and you are missed so much already. I miss your warm hugs and smile. We have been best friends for so long and we will miss you dearly.

From: Enid
Relation: Friend and co worker

We worked together for many many years, first in Victoria and then again when you joined us gals in Duncan. You were such an easy and fun person to work with, I really enjoyed our years together at Beverly. Hard to believe you’re gone, you will definitely be missed.

From: Sam
Relation: Coworker

We miss you Connie.
I keep thinking back to seeing you last week. You were so relaxed and happy.
Rod, Jamie and Justin my thoughts are with you all. She was a wonderful lady.

From: Cathy Parkes-devine
Relation: co-worker

Rod, Jamie and Justin my thoughts are with you. Connie will be missed by all, I enjoyed working with her, RIP my friend.

From: Karen Halliday
Relation: Through a close friend

Through very close friends and in our younger years, we came to meet Connie, Rod and their boys (as each were born), reaquainting at various common-friend gatherings. Although we were more friend acquaintances, the sudden loss of Connie came as a shock and a reminder of how much we all take life for granted with each and every loved one, family and friends. Unfortunately, like Connie’s close friends, best friends and her family, I also feel her loved ones sadness and sorrow of a life cut too short. The memories of the good times and fun times Connie shared with whom all she knew, now more precious. Our thoughts, heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Rod, Jamie and Justin, Connie’s family and closest friends. Yet another Angel soars.

From: Debbie Rowlandson
Relation: family friend

Rod and family. I’m so sorry to hear about Connie. My heart goes out to you. May God give you comfort and strength through these difficult times. God bless you all.

From: Cidnee Elise Johnson
Relation: via her work

Connie was a very special person, whose lovig presence, joy and inspiration will continue to live in my memory. May your own happy memories be a source of comfort to you now. With love and blessings.
