RILEY RAE DENNEHY (published on October 16, 2009)

RILEY RAE DENNEHY July 3, 1986 October 8, 2009 It is with great sadness that we inform her beloved family, friends and all that were privileged to share a part of their lives with Riley, daughter of Kerry and Ginny Dennehy and sister of late brother Kelty, of her unexpected passing on October 8, 2009 while on her adventure in Thailand. Riley Rae was on her journey of life to become the better person she wanted to be. Riley had just completed an intense course in yoga where she was in the final steps to pursue another course in Thai massage. Riley was born July 3, 1986 in West Vancouver where she grew up like many other young children participating in all sorts of sports and activities such as ringette, hockey, dance and drama. Our move to Whistler opened so many more opportunities for her living in this amazing supportive community, surrounded by the beauty of the lakes and mountains which Whistler offers. Riley was an avid snowboarder and also a hockey player where she represented Vancouver as a left winger at the BC Winter games in Smithers,BC. The group of friends Riley gathered while living in Whistler has always been the backbone of her life. Riley's many aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents have been such an integral part of her life. It's with this love she gathered from her family and friends that helped her develop into the kind, gentle soul that she will always be remembered for. She said in her last email to her mother she was honored to be surrounded by the most amazing people in her life and she loved them all. The death of her brother Kelty in 2001 was very devastating and she struggled silently through her grief. Over the past years, as Riley healed, she became a beautiful soul on the insideas she was on the outside. There will be a service for her family and friends on Wednesday, October 21 at 5:00 p.m. at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church in Whistler. Following the church service there will be a celebration of Riley's life at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. In lieu of flowers, donations in Riley's name would be greatly appreciated to The Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation, Box 35, Whistler, BC V0N 1B8 or
