The family of Lillian Walker wishes to announce her passing on April 22, 2012 in Salmon Arm, B.C.

A long-time resident of Quesnel, Lil worked at Regal Jewellers for many years before retiring to Salmon Arm in 1993 with her husband, Bill.

Her memory will be forever treasured by Bill, her husband of 64 years; sons, Lorne (Shirley), Bill (Lori), both of Quesnel, B.C.; daughters, Joyce (Russ) Weber of Quesnel, B.C. and Shelley (Geoff) Barrow of Kelowna, B.C.; ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Lil was, above all, a genuine lady. To know her was to know the warmth of her smile and the kindness in her heart. We are all the richer for her presence in our lives.

Funeral services will be held at Clayton’s Funeral Directors, 582 Front Street, Quesnel, B.C. on Saturday, May 5 at 1 p.m.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to Dr. Dirk Breugem and the staff of the Shuswap Lake General Hospital and Bastion Place Palliative Unit for their compassionate care to Lil and her family during the last weeks of her life.
