MLcDilloiuagna ll (Nee Guy)
It is with profound sadness we regretfully announce the passing of
Lillian McDougall on Saturday September 27, 2008 at the age of 84.
Our Mom, Grandmother, Sister and Friend, was born on November 3,
1923 and raised in Vancouver B.C. where she lived with her husband
John and raised their four children, Diane (Doug), Doug (Debbie), Teresa
(Darrell) and Jim (Teresa). The daughter of James and Nelie Guy, Mom
grew up in the Fraserview district South Vancouver. Lillian was the
middle sister to brothers, Jim and Bob. An avid athlete as a young
person, she excelled in sports, especially softball and basketball. Lillian
was a member of the 1938 Girls Canadian basketball champions and
travelled across Canada with that team. After the war and Dad’s return
from the navy, Mom and Dad were married, started a family and lived
in Vancouver until 1973. The family moved from Vancouver to Vernon
where Mom lived until moving to Kelowna in late 2007.
Mom’s hobbies were many, but it was her family and extended family
that was her greatest passion of all. She loved them dearly. Along
with her children, Mom had ten grandchildren: Cindy, Shelly, David,
Danny, Dean, Drew, Melanie, Brad, MacKenzie and Michael and seven
great grandchildren. Mom loved to cook and bake for her family. She
loved to travel with her friends and family and was known to gamble
the odd roll of quarters. Mom was a thoughtful and loving person and
will be sadly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Lillian was
predeceased by her husband John, son Doug and brother Jim.
A celebration of Mom’s (Lillian‘s) life will be held at the Pleasant
Valley Funeral Home on Thursday October 2nd, 2008 at 11:00 a.m. A
gathering will take place after the service at the Schubert Centre.
