Lilia Meri Zaplaski (Moreno) May 27, 1929 - December 25, 2012 Surrounded by loving family, our "Noni" passed peacefully in North Vancouver, BC after a valiant battle with cancer on Christmas Day. Predeceased by her cherished husband Anthony Charles (1968). Lilia is survived by her daughter Margaret (John), daughter Mara (Richard) and son Edward (Erika) and the joys of her life grandchildren Jessica, Jacob, Merina, Anthony and William as well as various siblings including sister Delfa and many nieces and nephews. Born in Tariba, Venezuela, Lilia immigrated to Montreal, QC in 1958 and moved to North Vancouver, BC in 1988. Lilia will be forever remembered for her love and dedication towards family, her love of life and witty humour. A memorial mass and celebration of life will be held in the near future. Thank you to the nurses with North Shore Home Care and all the staff at North Shore Hospice during the last hours of Lilia's life. We love you Noni! You will be truly missed!
