DANA LEE DEBRA LANDRY
April 18, 1979 – June 28, 2021
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Dana Landry on June 28, 2021, in Kenora Ontario.
She is missed by her parents, Gordon Landry of Morris and Nancy Dixon Landry of Winnipeg; her siblings, Dale Codette, Jeff Landry and Jennifer Collette (Richard, Violet and Lily) of Morris, grandmother Dorothy Dixon, of Swan River; an extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins; as well as countless friends.
Dana was predeceased by her grandfather, Michael Dixon; grandparents Denis and Elsie Landry; as well as two special canine companions.
After graduating from French Immersion in Winnipeg, Dana went on to attain a Masters of English Literature from Concordia University in Montreal. Her most recent paid endeavor was at career counselling first in Kenora and eventually in Sudbury, Ontario but this followed teaching experiences at the U of W and South Korea. Regardless of where she lived, she identified as a prairie girl with appreciation for wildflower fragrances and infinite skies. Especially did she enjoy gardening, hiking nature trails, swimming, farmer’s markets, music events and writing but also painting, yoga and baking.
She sparkled like a multi faceted diamond.
Cremation has taken place. A private celebration of Dana's life will be held when it is possible to gather. In the meantime, Dana’s family kindly requests that her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above. Please, also consider sharing your own photos and/or sharing your own memories and stories using the comment section on this page.
She Is Gone
You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
