July 5, 1943 – March 01-2014
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Mother, Sister and wonderful friend. Lucille left us on March 1, 2014 after a very short but courageous battle with cancer. She will be sadly missed by her sons Douglas Wilkinson, Lorne Wilkinson (Tammy), daughter Susan Young (Jack), grand-daughter Jennifer & great-grand baby Tiffany, her sisters Linda, Florence and Lisa and step-father Alfie Dickson, numerous Aunts, Uncles and Cousins and her cherished “lunch brunch” group. She is also survived by her friend Maureen and loving family friend CC who along with her son Doug helped ease her through this final journey with care and love. Lucille was an admin supervisor for the provincial government income assistance office for over 20 years. She was diligent in her job mentoring many to become exceptional public servants. After retirement she volunteered with the elder college and the hospice society where she assisted many families through situations much like her own this past month Lucille was a very spiritual person. She accepted this diagnosis with courage and strength far beyond what most could endure… she was at peace with herself and ready to go with the “angels” “You have earned your wings my dear friend – fly with love and peace.
Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
