Lisa (Bryan) Smith
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of "Our Lisa", Elizabeth Maria (Bryan) Smith, August 30, 2022. Lisa was surrounded by loving family in BC after a short illness that she fought so courageously.
Lisa was born on February 3, 1965 in New Glasgow, NS to Nancy (Humphreys) and the late Clarence Bryan. Lisa loved being a part of a large family. She was one of seven sisters and one brother and spent her childhood in Trenton, NS.
She is survived by her fiancé. Harvey Daviduk; her daughters, Deborah (Robert) Wakeham and Taylor (OJ) Hennigar; her cherished grandchildren, Brooklyn, Avery and Levi; her mother, Nancy (Humphreys); her siblings, Marilyn (David) Bonvie, Amy (William) Rafuse, Anne Bryan, Beverly (Austin Park) MacNeill, Robert Bryan, Faith (Gordon) Campbell, Erin (Richard Hameder) Bryan; many uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, all of whom loved her dearly and she in return.
Lisa enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, creating fun memories, traveling the world and creating beautiful spaces to entertain those she loved. Lisa was gifted at making us all feel so very special and was known as Lola to her beautiful grandchildren. She was a coveted employee as a Systems Consultant working over the years in NS and BC for Murray Skerrett and Associates, Layfield Group, Shae Global, and PAL Solutions.
Lisa will be remembered for her kind spirit, quick wit, infectious smile, and the magic she brought to our lives each and every day. She will be forever missed and leaves behind a legacy of love.
