CONNELLY, Brenda Ellen Connelly
(August 14, 1960 - November 20, 2020) -

It is with much sadness that we announce Brenda’s passing on November 20th in the early afternoon.

Devoted daughter of Francis (deceased 2004) and Mildred (nee Greenan). Dear sister of Regina and Glenn Annis and Wayne Connelly. Loving aunt of Melissa (John) Oliveira and Ashley (Robert) Brown. Great-aunt of Elliot, Johnny and Abby. Dear cousin of too many to mention in B.C., Alberta, Ontario, Nova Scotia and PEI .

Brenda faced many health challenges from the tender age of 16 with great determination, strength and courage.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to Brenda’s faithful friends who were always at her side. Bob and Michelle Bell, Jeff and Melody Guerts, Merle and Bev Pope as well as Terry and Betty Wilt.

Due to the current pandemic, a private funeral mass and burial will be held but in the coming months, in brighter days, we will have a celebration to honour this special lady.

Condolences may be expressed online at

‘Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts’.

I had the honour of teaching Brenda accounting when she attended triOS College many years ago. We can all learn from her strength and incredibly positive attitude in spite of the health challenges she faced. I hope she wouldn't mind me sharing part of an email correspondence between us ...

"I am lucky to be here each day and enjoy what the day has to offer. I must control what I can, other matters which I cannot control learn to deal with it the best I can."

Rest in peace Brenda. It was an honour to cross paths.
