CARSON, Lillian Eileen
The Guest Book is expired.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother (known as G.G. to the little ones) on February 18, 2013 at home in Rossland, BC with her family by her side. Present also was her favourite niece and friend Heather Hawkins (Ron). Mom was born to John and Lillian Brown on May 6, 1933 in Shoal Lake, Manitoba. She was predeceased by her parents, and siblings Robert, John, Dorothy, Mary, Betty, Joyce and Marlene. She is survived by her daughter Pat (Les), grandchildren Christopher (Melissa) and Jessica, great grandchildren Maya, Bryson and Aliya, sisters Jean, Florence and Shirley and brother Neil. Mom lived a number of years in Thunder Bay, Ontario where she worked for the C.N.R., then moved to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan for a short time and then to Saskatoon where she worked for many years and retired from McKee Moving and Storage. Mom loved life and lived it to the fullest. She enjoyed spending time with her family, camping, fishing, travelling, dancing, gardening, curling, bowling and playing cards. She was always game to try new experiences and was the life of the party. Right up to the end of time she kept her sense of humour. Lillian was a member of the Army and Navy Saskatoon Unit 38 where she enjoyed socializing with her valued friends. She was a dedicated mother, sister, grandmother and friend and will be missed by her family, numerous nephews and nieces and friends. The family would very much like to thank their "support team" in Rossland, BC, Dr.'s Libby McCoid, Marnie Jacobsen, nurse practitioner Barb Nielsen, R.N.'s Brenda Hooper and Debbie Erwin. Their assistance, guidance and caring helped mom and her family so much during the "journey".
Laugh as we always laughed.
