May 30, 1935 – March 17, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Lily Marie Nielsen (nee Browne) at the age of 79. Lily was born in Toronto, Ontario. and graduated in 1957 from Women’s College Hospital School of Nursing. She came out west to work as a nurse and met the love of her life, Bent. They were married in 1960.
Lily is survived by her loving husband, Bent Nielsen and they would have celebrated 55 years of marriage this summer. She is also survived by her four children: Nels (Katie) of Gold River; Yvonne & Eric of Terrace; and Caroline (Brad) Steinke of Orleans, Ontario. Lily will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Julianna & Nicholas. She leaves behind her brothers Barry (Lynda) Browne, Ralph Browne, and her sister Bernice (Sonny) Hysen as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
The family gathered at Terrace Cemetery for a small graveside service by Pastor Clint Magnus. Arrangements were handled by MacKay’s Funeral Service.
The family would like to send a special thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at Mills Memorial Hospital who took wonderful care of Lily.
