Whitehorse, Yukon; University of Alberta, 1974. Died following a motor vehicle accident Jan. 6, 2018, aged 69. Survived by 2 daughters and her ex-husband, Peter Densmore, who told the Yukon News: “Lis contributed a lot here. At one point, she could probably rightfully say she delivered half the kids who were here in Whitehorse.” Dr. Alex Poole, president of the Yukon Medical Association, told the Whitehorse Daily Star: “Lis was a very good doctor, with a great compassion for women’s health in particular. Her all-round skills were a significant asset to the community for decades. I always appreciated her succinct and to-the-point correspondence, and her willingness to assist in the care of patients at all times.”
