It is with great sadness we announce Lylia's passing at the age of 80 on February 27, 2023. She was born on January 17, 1943 to the parents of Elizabeth and Len Cameron and raised in the small town of Woodnorth Manitoba.
She was the wife to her surviving husband Robert (Bob) Brown (Newdale, MB). Lylia was a dedicated mother to her two boys and their families; Allan (son) and Lisa Brown, grandsons Matthew and Nathan and Scotty (son) and Cheryl Brown, grandson Steven all of Winnipeg. Also survived by her two brothers Bud Cameron of High River, AB and Gordie (Sharon) Cameron of Virden, MB as well as numerous nieces and nephews and many close friends.
Lylia and Bob enjoyed 50+ years in the St. Vital area of Winnipeg with their children making many lifelong friendships. She had a very lengthy career with CIBC at numerous branches.
Like most grandmothers she was a very proud supporter of all of her grandson's sporting events over the years. Lylia enjoyed time with friends and family, reading, relaxing in the summer sun at Oak Lake or in her yard and dreaming of returning to Hawaii one day soon with her partner in crime Pat (cousin). She was always in the window with a smile as guests arrived and with a thoughtful wave goodbye as they backed out of her driveway. Lylia was one of the most selfless people who took great pride in caring for her family, friends and anyone blessed to have her in their life near and far.
Lylia will be greatly missed by all...
At Lylia's request there will be no funeral. A small family burial will take place in Virden, MB at a later date.

Memory contributions to would be graciously appreciated in Lylia's honour.

  • I was so very saddened as I just become aware of the loss of Lylia recently. We lived across the street from the Brown's on Wakopa for 30 years and both Bob and Lylia were the best neighbors anyone could ask for. "Mrs. Brown" held a very special place in my kids and my own life as she was always there with a smile and encouraging words when needed. You will always have a warm place in our memories. Our thoughts are with you Bob, Al and Scott and your families. Bruce, Brett and Lisa Reid - Posted by: Bruce Reid (Neighbor) on: May 31, 2023

  • Lylia was a wonderful Cousin very caring and had a heart of gold. When visiting the family during the summers on the farm she showed me how to milk the cows. I had also asked her if brown cows produce chocolate milk. She had a great laugh about that question. She had taken me on my first Ferris wheel ride at the Reston Fair Grounds during our visits.
