Lois (Lea) Petrygan
July 28, 1934 ~ September 9, 2023 (age 89) 89 Years Old
Lea is predeceased by her husband Ted Petrygan, who lost his battle with cancer in 2004.
She is survived by her son Greg Robertson (Fortune) and grandson, Brian; her son Grant Petrygan (Angie) and grandchildren Teyah and Kayden; and her brother Gord Marshall (Linda).
Today, our hearts are broken as we all mourn the loss of my beloved sister, Lea. Her bright light and big heart left us too soon, but we will remember her warmth, love, and generosity.
Lea developed a rare condition called Ataxia. It robbed her of her sense of balance and ability to speak clearly. While dealing with that she was diagnosed with cancer, which fortunately did not cause her any pain but took her too soon.
We will all miss my sister, as will those she impacted throughout her life, from friends and family, along with those she volunteered with at the Red Cross and Seniors Centre.
We will all be eternally grateful to the staff at the Village at Smith Creek, where Lea spent her final years. She received the best of care from extremely friendly and compassionate people.
My son Robert and his wife Alana were a huge part of her support in so many ways. Their children, Race, Soroyya and Kayla gave her great joy with their visits. Her wonderful friend Terry was constantly by her side in the final days, sharing a glass of Pinot Grigio out in the garden at Smith Creek.
