TILLY SIMPKIN Suddenly on Friday, February 22, 2008, Tilly Simpkin, the beloved wife of Michael McIsaac, passed away at the age of 48 years.

She loved her extended family, especially Michael's brother and sisters, Jane, Patrick and Leah, who will miss her dearly. She was predeceased by her father, David Simpkin. Tilly was a very loving, compassionate, kind and generous person. She had a special gift for being able to empathize with others. Her smile would light up a room. She was a talented seamstress who often designed and made beautiful clothing for herself and her friends. Tilly loved her family and friends with all her heart. To the many children in her life from beloved nieces and nephews to her friend's children, she was truly loved by them all. She was never embarrassed to act silly around the children and left them with many wonderful memories. Tilly loved to have fun and her mere presence would turn any occasion into a celebration. A celebration of Tilly's life will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, 2008 at Bardal Funeral Home, 843 Sherbrook Street with the Rev. Dr. Eleanor Geib presiding.

In the hearts of Tilly's friends and acquaintinces, she was not merely "very loving, compassionate, kind and generous". She painted pictures with words, paid you her complete attention, lite a room with theatrical flair and you loved being around her. We shared a weekend with friends in Mnpls for Lollapalooza '94 for which I will never forget. We laughed the whole time. And we will never forget her. With sadness my heart goes out to Mike and all her family. - Posted by: Greg Tonn (Friend) on: Feb 26, 2008
