Lisa Marion Ennis


Lisa Marion Ennis

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Lisa Marion Ennis on May 18, 2024, age 53. Born in Halifax, NS on July 3, 1970, Lisa was a beloved daughter of Jeanne Marie (Farquhar) Taylor and Michael Joseph Ennis. 

Lisa’s contagious smile and love of life captivated all who knew her. She was a proud graduate of Central Kings Rural High in 1991. Aside from school, Lisa was involved in Girl Guides and Tritons Swim Club; however, some of her most memorable activities were her enthusiastic participation in both Special Olympics and the Stage Prophets productions. Lisa embraced these roles and cherished the lasting connections she made during these times. Anyone who watched her compete or saw her perform on stage could feel her genuine happiness and level of commitment.  

Lisa had a variety of interests, some of which included travel, dancing, shopping, trips to the spa, bowling, and listening to music. However, it was family time that gave Lisa some of her happiest moments: weekly movie trips with her Dad, visits to the shore with her Mom, or birthday celebrations with her entire family where she was showered with attention and presents. These cherished moments enveloped Lisa with feelings of being special and immensely loved.

Lisa held several fulfilling employment positions over the years, some of which included, Old Orchard Inn, Slumber Inn, and Fidelis House. However, working for her "Big Brother Sean", perhaps was one of her favorites. These employment opportunities provided Lisa with meaningful social interactions, which she dearly treasured.

Lisa is survived by her loving parents; siblings, Sean Christopher Ennis (Colette), Scott Michael Ennis (Sally), Erica Leanne Easton (Sean); maternal grandmother, Madeleine Farquhar; nephews, Morgan, Hayden, Gavin, Ethan, Luke, Drew; nieces Kaitlyn and Monica. She was predeceased by her maternal grandfather Benjamin Farquhar and paternal grandparents Charles and Marion Ennis. 

The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the dedicated and loving staff of Community Living Alternatives Society (CLAS) who provided a second home for Lisa, caring for her over the years and nurturing her in her final stages. Additional thanks to both Dr. Wadden and the Community Assessment Support and Treatment Team (COAST) for their compassionate care and Valley Hospice who provided comfort to both Lisa and the family in her final days.

Lisa lived life fully with innocence and happiness. She was loving, caring, and perceptive of how people were feeling, often reaching out with a warm hug. We should all strive to embrace her beautiful vision for life.  At the request of the family, donations can be made in Lisa’s name to Special Olympics, NS Division, Valley Hospice Foundation, or a charity of your choosing. 

In accordance with the family's wishes, there will be no visitation. A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date at Holy Cross Cemetery.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville. Online condolences and inquiries may be directed to
