LILLIAN ANTONETTE BURGESS
FEBRUARY 16, 1931 - DECEMBER 28, 2021
Lillian passed away peacefully, surrounded by her children. She will be forever loved and missed by her children, Bill (Linda), Rob (Patrice), Rosemary (Donald) and Teresa Horobec (Bob) as well by her eight grandsons and their families which include her 15 great-grandchildren, and also four step-granddaughters and their families. Lillian is also survived by her dear sister, Gladys MacKay (Arnold).
Mom was employed at Eaton's in her younger years. Once she and Dad married and then had a family, she was a stay-at-home mom until she re-entered the workforce in 1974 for a 20-year career with the Canadian Wheat Board.
Mom and Dad enjoyed camping and traveling to Hawaii and Mexico with family and friends. Mom was the kindest, most thoughtful and sweet woman, always putting others before herself. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. Mom had a great love of God and her family and friends and will be truly missed by all who knew her. She was predeceased by her husband, Bill, in 2014 after 64 years of marriage.
We wish to express our gratitude to the staff at Cornish 6 Misericordia Health Centre for their care and compassion for Mom and for us.

I just saw your mother's passing in the in memoriam in our CWB Alumni Association newsletter. I worked with Lil many, many years ago. She was such a wonderful, fun lady. So sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Debbie Derksen (co-worker) on: Feb 03, 2022
I was thirteen when I moved away from Roberta Ave. but I spent a lot of time with Lillian's daughters at their house as a child and she was always very kind to me. She also made wonderful shortbread. My sympathies to the whole family on your loss. - Posted by: Marilyn Cameron (nee Suderman) (Neighbour on Roberta Avenue) on: Jan 13, 2022
