As the monarch of our family, Lillian demonstrated unwavering faith and belief in us all.  She cheered the loudest when celebrating achievements and milestones, encouraged us to live life to the fullest and to dream big.  Mom eagerly participated in many planned and impromptu family excursions, travel/cruising, scrapbooking, working with pet therapy “trainees”, reading, finding new lunch venues with her girls and attending live orchestral performances.

In honor of Mom’s wishes, a private family gathering will be held to celebrate her life. 

You left us too soon Mom…we had many adventures awaiting and new family members to meet.  We carry you forever in our hearts and souls.

In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Pet Therapy Society of Northern Alberta and/or the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
