On Jan. 12, police identified the deceased as Tena Marie Brunelle.

An obituary states that she was “struck by a vehicle while walking on a sidewalk.”

“Known for her big smile and cheery laugh, her sweet sense of humour helped make light of things when the situation needed it,” the obituary continued.

“Tena loved the outdoors and walked everyday covering many kilometres each week, wearing her trademark hand-knit sweater to keep her warm.”
