McLellan – Eliza Constance St Leger (Nee: Butler)

July 8, 1921 – November 4, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Connie at the age of 99. Predeceased by her husband Hugh, son-in-law Rob, grandson Geoff. She will be dearly missed by her daughters Wendy, Lisa (Murray), Ann (Len), and grandchildren Chris (Kim), Diana (Brian), Brendon (Chelsea), Melissa, Philip (Chelsea), and Devin. Connie was GG to Wyatt, Carson, Lexie, Brynlee, Elliette and Owen. She will be missed by her many nieces, nephews, and close friends.

She was born in Fort Langley in 1921 and grew up in Vancouver. She married Hugh in 1951 and eventually settled in Port Moody for the next 50 years. During that time she left to follow Hugh while he worked and lived in Ghana, Chile, United States, and many cities throughout British Columbia. Connie travelled the world into her 80’s. She then moved into Parkwood Manor where she made many friends who then became like a second family.

Connie was everyone’s shining star. She was energetic, determined, and loving. She always thought of others and her biggest joy in life was to be surrounded by her family. We will always remember the sound of her laughter and her smile. Donations can be made in her name to B.C. Cancer Foundation.

Wendy, Lisa and Ann,

We enjoyed meeting and living next to Connie and Hugh on Balbirnie. We were very sad when she decided it was time to move away. We have missed her and thought of her on many occasions. She was such a kind, thoughtful and lovely person. Knowing that she was 99 astonishes us as she seemed much younger when she still lived next door.

Definitely sadness at our house today on reading of her death. Love and good wishes to each of you with fond remembrances of Connie.
Marnie, Harald, Hannah and Madeline xo

Wendy, Lisa and Ann:
I knew both your Mom and Dad for many years, and always thought fondly of both of them. After your Dad passed away and your Mom moved to Parkwood, I would see her there when I visited my own Father. There was a Parkwood group of ladies who were our “special people”, and Elma and I hosted a lunch for them in the private dining room at Parkwood on more than one occasion. Your Mom was always invited and always participated. The Reynolds connection was another reason for our affinity with Connie and Wendy; some relationships just blossom like that. Mine, with your Mom, was one of those. RIP Connie - you deserve peace and comfort in eternity.
