Lillian, M. King

Lillian M. King

August 30, 1922 – April 5, 2008

Lillian (Skogmo) King was born in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Lillian resided and worked in Prince Rupert until 1951 when she, her husband Corbin King, and young son Lorne moved to Terrace for Corbin to manage the Co-op. Lillian and Corbin raised their family in Terrace and then retired in Salmon Arm in 1979. They returned to Terrace in 1989 to be closer to family and friends.

“Anytime is coffee time” was a fond saying of Lillian’s and she was known for always having homemade goodies to go with the coffee breaks. She was an energetic woman, “always in a hurry”, who enjoyed time with family and friends, trying new recipes, preparing for Christmas, and expressing herself through the painting of local landscapes. She was very proud of her children and grandchildren.

Lillian is survived by her husband of 64 years, Corbin, of Terrace; daughter-in-law Lorraine King of Burnaby, son Rob (Paula) King of Terrace, daughter Christine (Brent) Andrews of Terrace. Lillian was a beloved granny to Eleanor and Carolyn King of Burnaby, Laird and Shannon King of Terrace and Rees and Erik Andrews of Terrace. She was predeceased by her son Lorne and her three siblings.

Thank you to the Doctors and Nurses at Mills Memorial Hospital who provided care for Lillian. The support of family and friends has been sincerely appreciated as well.
