Kathleen Jean Lapeyrouse (Stewart) born June 30th, 1950 in Lethbridge, Alberta, gently passed away in Qualicum Beach, BC, on Wednesday, July 18th, 2018 after living with cancer for only a few short weeks. Survived by her mom, Jean Alwood; sisters, Marilyn Greig (Rob) and Melanie Brais (Paul); son, David Lapeyrouse (Carly); daughter, Rosanna Lapeyrouse; their father, David Lapeyrouse Sr; and grandson, Beck Lapeyrouse. Predeceased by her father, Bob Stewart and step father, Bill Alwood.
Kathleen learned Transcendental Meditation (TM) in Calgary when still a teenager. She went on to become a successful TM teacher; a profession she maintained all her life. She attended innumerable courses with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Canada, the USA, Europe and India. Over the years she established herself as one of the brightest, most successful TM teachers in the world.
A few years ago, Kathleen became a certified practitioner of Maharishi Gem Light Therapy (MLG) as well as the first National Ambassador for the Brahmananda Saraswati Foundation of Canada (BSF Canada), an international charity whose goal is to create World Peace. She dedicated her life to helping others, to making the world a better place and she did it beautifully.
Kathleen took great delight in living and raising her family in Tofino and in the last number of years calling Qualicum Beach home. She was dearly loved by her large extended family and circle of friends all over the world.
A celebration of Kathleen's life will be held August 8th in Parksville, BC (see details below*) and on a date still to be determined in late August in Calgary, AB.
