She is predeceased by her husband, Morgan; parents, William and Martha; brother Bob; and her daughter Judy.
Lillian was born in Brandon, Mb on August 12, 1924. She was the oldest of 3 children. She went on to graduate from Briercrest College and Seminary in Saskatchewan.
A lover of the outdoors, Lillian enjoyed cross country skiing, skating, long walks with her dog, and travelling. Her favourite place to be was at her cabin in Clear Lake, Mb, where she had been going since she was a little girl. She spent entire summers there with her granddaughter. She loved it when her family and friends would visit her there. As she was an avid reader, she owned a Christian bookstore there that she was immensely proud of.
Her faith was the most important to her. She loved going to church and was incredibly involved in it. She enjoyed teaching in the children’s ministries. She was very generous, donating to many charities. Every year, Lillian would put together 30-100 Christmas boxes for Samaritan’s Purse.
Her family was her pride and joy. Every year, she would host big dinners for Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter for her family and friends.
Lillian was such an important part of so many people’s lives. She even ran a bible study at her house for her grand children and their friends. She was often in the kitchen cooking and baking, always having goodies in the freezer for people to sneak.
Lillian lived her life to the fullest, even after her stroke she fought so hard to stay positive and never let her faith waiver. She did not fear death because she knew there was a spot in heaven waiting for her. She made a positive impact on everyone she met. We will never forget her infectious laugh. She will be deeply missed.
Donations can be made, in her name to Life Outreach International, in lieu of flowers.

Psalm 23 - The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
