Peacefully on January 14, 2023, at the age of 75, Lily May passed away at Riverview Health Centre.
She was predeceased by her sister Sandy Carleton. She will be profoundly missed by her husband John, her two sons, Howard (Shona, Sarah and Owen), Donavon (Liam and Petra), extended Sireds, Thomson, and Nellis families and her dear friends.
Lily's best years were spent in Winnipeg where her first love was her family. Lily loved to entertain, travel and garden. She had a 35-year career at MTS which included volunteering for the Pioneers Society as Smiley the clown and Mrs. Claus. Once retired she worked at Bowring for a number of years, and she really enjoyed all of her co-workers and the friends she made at that job.
Her family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff at the third floor tower in Deer Lodge for their care and compassion.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date where we can all have a toast to Lily May.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Alzheimer Society.
