Lillian Barbara Mae Holman

January 10, 1930 – May 22, 2009

It is with deepest sorrow that the family of Lillian Holman (nee Sherk) announces her passing at Polson Extended Care Facility in Vernon, BC. Although Mom suffered with Alzheimer’s Disease, she retained her sweetness and beautiful smiling eyes.

Lillian was a very caring, loving mother; who truly was a home-maker with concern over her family, a well kept house, and meals on time. Her gift was music; she loved to play guitar, dance and sing. These are some of our fondest memories. We will always treasure her as our mom and look forward to seeing her on the other side. She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her loving husband, George Holman and;
