Our loving Mother passed away peacefully at Arrowsmith Lodge in Parksville on November 21, 2013. She will be deeply missed by family and friends in Terrace and on Vancouver Island.
After raising her family in Terrace, Lil retired to Vancouver Island, living in Bowser, Qualicum Beach and Parksville. She was predeceased by her husband George and eldest son, Curtis. Lil leaves to mourn her passing: 7 children, 17 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren.
Lil will be remembered for her kindness and gentle caring ways. Always welcoming, she loved to create a delicious meal for whom ever showed up for dinner. A favorite remembrance is our after dinner sing-a-longs and her wonderful sweet voice, leaving us with many fond memories.
The family wishes to express their gratitude and thanks for the excellent care and friendship given to their Mother by the staff at Arrowsmith Lodge during her one year stay.
A Memorial Service and Reception will be held at Yates Funeral Chapel, 1000 Allsbrook Road in Parksville, BC on Saturday, November 30th at 1:00 pm.
