Lisa Jeannette Wuohela

October 19, 1969 — October 6, 2021

It is with much love and sadness that the family of Lisa Jeannette Wuohela, formerly Melanson (nee Rae) announce Lisa’s sudden passing on October 6, 2021 along with her brother Tim Goodrow. She will be dearly missed by her parents Susan and Mike Goodrow (stepfather). She has left behind her six beautiful children, Kyle Melanson (Niki), Tyler Melanson, Kelsey (Dylan) Paulette and Connor Melanson (Taylor Whiteside), Odinn Wuohela and Riddick Wuohela; along with grandchildren Zander Melanson, Braven, Lincoln and Beau Paulette. Predeceased by grandson Rheese Paulette. She will also be missed by brother Brandon Rae; niece and nephew Lexus and Jaxson Rae; step-sister Jacqueline Goodrow (Dave Hand); along with aunts, uncles and cousins. Lisa was predeceased by her father Bruce Rae, and grandparents Harvey and Norma Raven and Merlin and Margaret Rae.

She will be deeply missed by her cherished companion Terry Thompson.

Lisa was born on October 19, 1969 in Toronto, Ontario and moved to Calgary from Milton, Ontario in the early nineties. Her babies filled her life for so many years. And then came the grandchildren that she adored. She loved all of her pets, cats, dogs and even a pig at one point. Her youth was spent riding horses and a few years ago she had her own horse, Gracie. Over the years she worked at many nursing homes in Calgary. Her greatest joy was to be able to care for her nana before she died. She was caring and passionate in everything that she did. Family and friends were always welcome in her home. She was a great cook and had a flare for decorating. Lisa was as beautiful inside as she was out.

“Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don’t remember me at all.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

A private family service has already been held. Lisa’s ashes will be buried with her Nana in Toronto,

Ontario at a later date.
