Peacefully, on November 3, 202l our beloved mother, Irene Lillian Hill, passed away at the age of 96.
She will be sadly missed and lovingly
remembered by her sons, Ken (Debra), Tim and her daughter Carol. Her greatest legacy was her family, six children, thirteen grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. As children and young adults, they were lucky to experience life with her and will always treasure their fond memories of her.
Irene was predeceased by her husband Gordon, son Bobby, daughters, Lynne and Shelley, and other family members whom she loved dearly.
Mom was a strong and determined woman, whatever hardships she endured, she was able to use her strength to overcome them.
Mom will be remembered by all who met her for her kindness and great smile. She loved being outdoors tending to her yard,
garden and flower beds. She was always up for a cup of tea and her homemade sweets when anyone would drop by for a visit.
To celebrate our mom's life, we are
planning a private memorial for immediate family members.
In lieu of flowers, consider donating in
Irene's name to the Alzheimer Society.

  • We were neighbours on Dalton for approx. 8 years. I used to give her my rhubarb from my yard and she would make me this wonderful rhubarb cake. I think of her often over the years.

Our brother Marcel would always make a point of inviting your Mom to DeGrave family gatherings when our Mom would come to visit. Your Mom always had a big smile and never forgot a name.
