Qennefer Wood-Hahn Browne

BROWNE, Qennefer Wood-Hahn - July 20, 1937, Toronto - October 26, 2017, Orillia A life well spent in raising her family, preserving her parentsí artistic legacy, engaging her two communities (Orillia and Thunder Bay) and pursuing her many design, research, political and cultural passions was ended after a stoic battle with cancer. Qennefer was still thinking about design projects and loved ones in her final week. Qennefer was the only child of sculptors Emanuel Hahn and Elizabeth Wyn Wood. She is survived by husband Robert, daughters Sylvie (Kersten), Sydney (David), Sybil (Greg), Nigama and Aurora (Kris), and grandchildren Conrad, Isabella, Sarah, Silas, Ben, Jake, and Sebastian. We extend thanks to Drs. Sheppard, Catford and Ball and to the tremendous staffs of OSMH (Orillia), RVH (Barrie) and Bayshore Home Health Simcoe County. Family and friends are invited to a memorial service on Sunday November 19, 2017 at 1.20pm, St. Paulís Centre, 50 Coldwater St. East, Orillia, and a reception thereafter. In honour of Qenneferís lifelong community stewardship, contributions may be made to the planned Mariposa House Hospice in Orillia, http://www.mariposahousehospice.com13227818

Qennefer was a wonderful neighbour and an engaging conversationalist on any occasion we happened to be at the same event - usually at OMAH. Our condolences to her husband Bob and her family.
