It is with great sadness that we announce that Bernice Hennessy (Mackean) passed away Saturday morning after a 9 month battle with leukemia. The MacKean family has been an integral part of the West Ottawa association for many years (the novice coaching award is named after Rob Mackean). Both Heather and Jenny Mackean played in West Ottawa for their entire ringette career, from Bunnies to Belle. Bernice was a key volunteer on teams and in the association for all those years.
Friends may pay their respects this coming Friday (Nov. 3rd) any time after noon, with a service to follow at 2:00 pm, at Capital Funeral Home and Cemetery (3700 Prince of Wales Drive).
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation – Hematology Department are appreciated.
Condolences and memories may be shared here.
