Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • Dear Family of Lillian Rose. My sympathy on the passing of your dear Lillian. We became friends many years ago when I was selling Avon, and Lillian was my client. Since we lived close by, we would have a good visit from time to time, and Lillian was always friendly, and happy to see you. We had just talked on the phone before Christmas, when she told me she was going to spend Christmas with her family. I am sorry I never got to see her again,....she will always be special in my memories. May your family know God's comfort and peace at this time of loss. - Posted by: Lynne Alexiuk (Friend ) on: Jan 24, 2023

  • I have had the pleasure of knowing Lillian all my life. Lillian and Dennis were close friends with my parents ( Charlie and Betty Greeley ). She was fondly known to me as my Aunty Lil. I have so many wonderful memories of Easter, Thanksgiving , Christmas and New Years dinners and parties over the years. Lillian and Dennis always in attendance at my parents home. In recent years, as I travelled to Wpg, it was always on my list to take time to visit Aunty Lil. In December we made dinner together and spent many hours visiting, laughing and reminiscing about life and memories shared. Aunty Lil was never short on words or stories, her energy and positivity, so inspiring. Despite her health issues, she did not dwell on them. Lillian was thankful for every day and beamed when she spoke of her grand daughters and of course her grand babies! Aunty Lil has been woven into the fabric of my life and I feel very blessed to have known her. Sincere Condolences Denny, Wendy and families.

  • My fondest memories of Lillian was when we use to attend the 55+ luncheons in Stonewall and spending the day w/Dennis & Linda. The time we dressed up for her granddaughters Halloween wedding social, she was dressed as a witch, we sat in the back seat and sang all kinds of songs on the way there. I also remember a time when Dennis had purchased 2 tickets to see Engelbert Humperdinck but he wasn’t able to take his mom so he asked me if I would take her so off I went and picked Lillian up, we had dinner at Humpty’s and then we headed to club regent to see the show. She would tell me stories when a certain song came on as it reminded her of the days her and her husband would dance too. The odd tear would fall as the song was playing and I knew then how much she had cherished and missed those times with her husband. She loved to talk about everything and anything. She was one special lady. She will be missed but never forgotten. I was very blessed to have known her. May you rest in peace. 💐 - Posted by: Catherine Hansen (Friend ) on: Jan 14, 2023

  • My family met Lillian,Dennis and family in 1972. Our families have had a loving relationship ever since. We have been so close that we referred to Lil and Dennis as auntie and uncle. I loved them both very much. I have missed uncle Dennis for many years now and now will miss auntie Lil too. I know they are together again in heaven and will forever be in my heart. To Dennis , Wendy, and your families, I send my love and condolences. - Posted by: Terri Rawdon (close family friend ) on: Jan 14, 2023

  • Although I only met grandma once with Ashley and Emilio I could see what a special lady she was, and loved by everyone! May you all cherish the precious memories you have of her.
