KMIEC, Lucy-Rose Evangeline Winfield

July 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta
August 13, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Lucy-Rose, beloved daughter of Evangeline and Tom Kmiec of Calgary, AB, took her last breath in her big brother’s arms and passed away peacefully on August 13, 2018 at the age of 39 days.

Lucy-Rose was diagnosed with Trisomy 13 in the early days after birth and she spent 34 days in three NICUs and lived her last 5 days at home with her family. Though Lucy-Rose’s life was brief, she brought out the best in her family teaching them the value of each new day. Her greatest success is the incredible warmth she brought to her family and how she was able to mature her older siblings into responsible caretakers without a spoken word. She filled her family’s hearts and lives with so much love to last a lifetime and filled the hearts of those around her with warmth, empathy and compassion.

During her time on earth, she enjoyed spending time with her older siblings, listening to music, being sung or read to, and being cuddled by her family. She brought out the best in and was loved by all who met her. She will be dearly missed.

Lucy-Rose is survived by her parents, Tom and Evangeline Kmiec and two brothers and a sister, Maximillian, Jolie, and Enoch; grandparents, Krzysztof Kmiec, Halina Leszczynska and Winfred and Yvonne Winfield. She is also survived by two uncles and an aunt, Andrzej Kmiec, Emmanuel and Kimberly Winfield.

Funeral Services will be held at FIRST ALLIANCE CHURCH (12345 – 40th Street S.E., Calgary, AB) on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the church. Condolences may be forwarded through

    My dearest beloved niece, Evangeline, and nephew-in-law, Tom,
    Your precious love, Lucy-Rose, will
    always engraved and remained in heart and treasured memories of her earthly days. God has witnessed how her parents and siblings held and cuddled her with so much warm and unconditional love. There have been so much growth and maturity in all during her precious times with you both parents, Maximillium, Jolie, Enoch, my dear sister, Yvonne and brother-in-law, Oscar, nephew, Emmanuel and niece-in-law, Kimberly. As what God has promised, beloved & angelic Lucy-Rose is with Jesus and all the saints eternally.
    As all of us grieve painfully in our heart over the physical absence of beloved Lucy-Rose, we are assured that we will be reunited with her, and what Maxmilliam has rightly mentioned, Lucy-Rose is not alone in heaven, not only our Lord, Jesus, but also her great grandparents are all with her. Amen.
    May the Great Lord heal the pain and comfort the bereaved.
