It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Lillian Christmas, October 12, 2010, at the age of 92. Lillian was predeceased by her husband, Sidney Christmas, December 28, 2005 and is survived by her 3 children, Wayne (Sheila), Barb (Mike) Dickey and Debbie (Laurence) Craig. Lillian was born January 28, 1918, to William and Vercie Owens in North Vancouver, B.C. She will also be missed by her 7 grandchildren, Andrea, Kelli, Kristi, Jeff (Brandy), Scott (Crystal), Tobyn (Katrina), Daphne (Cory) and 3 great-grandchildren.
Lillian enjoyed a happy life raising her family in Lindell Beach, B.C., camping and going on various business trips with her husband who was employed with York Farms. Lillian was always very proud of working for the Royal Bank in her younger years and in her later years volunteering with Chilliwack Community Services. She very seldom missed her weekly bowling games which she enjoyed up until her late 80’s.
The family is very grateful to the staff at Cascade Manor and Lodge for their excellent care of mom over the past few years.
A graveside service will be held at Chilliwack Cemeteries, Hillcrest Drive, Chilliwack, Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 at 1:00 P.M. Flowers gratefully declined.
