Chenyse D. Plettell

1995 -2016

Chenyse D. Plettell, daughter of Donald and Aline Plettell, passed away quietly at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Monday, May 30, 2016, at the age of 21.

Chenyse was born on Thursday, January 26, 1995 in Lethbridge, Alberta. She is survived by her parents Donald and Aline Plettell, her two brothers Dominique and Michael, and her sister Rayleen, as well as numerous other family members and friends who loved her dearly.

Chenyse studied Psychology at the Lethbridge College and graduated in December 2015. She went on to study at the University of Lethbridge and planned to become a lawyer.

Chenyse loved music and spent her spare time playing the piano or guitar, and writing new songs. She worked with her dad and his band The Chevelles, operating lights and technical set up. She started with music lessons from age 6, but went on playing the piano and guitar mostly by ear. She was a beautifully talented musician and she talked her brothers into playing together with her, as a band, at Galt Gardens for a Canada Day celebration. She loved roller coasters and was not afraid to go on something others would not try.

Chenyse always looked out for the underdog, and was kind to everyone. She recently was learning about healing stones and gave many away to try to help others. She was beautiful inside and out, and anyone who knew her could see how kind and gentle she was. She loved her family and had a very special relationship with her sister Rayleen. Chenyse will be missed, but we know she is with her grandfather’s Plettell and Tiesters. We will always remember her as a beautiful, kind and talented young woman who was taken from us too soon.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00AM on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at MARTIN BROTHERS FUNERAL CHAPELS, 610 – 4 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, with Brother Rufus Kenny, officiating. Interment will follow in the Mountain View Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, we would love to hear how Chenyse touched your life, or anything you saw in her that we may treasure. Please send your thoughts to alinep@shockware.com Thank you.
