Lilian Catherine Blakeley
A life well lived. Lilian Catherine Blakeley passed away on November 11, 2014 aged 91. Mother to Paul (Lilian), Peter (Val), Pat nee Blakeley (Gordon Fyfe). Grandmother to Simon (Gwyn), Sarah (Ross), Catheryn, Lynda (Elmar), Steven (Jacquie), Paula (Taylor) and Alan. GG to 6 great grandchildren.
A proud cockney she served in the WRNS in WW11 where she met her love Alan. Moving to Canada in 1974 to be with their grandchildren, they embraced their new life. With legendary knitting skills she produced many Boomer hats and Izzie dolls. On Remembrance day she was pleased to lay the Silver Cross Mothers wreath at the Cenotaph. She will be greatly missed by her family here, in England and New Zealand, as well as her church family, friends and her fellow Choristers at the Evergreen Seniors. Special thanks to Dr. Harris as well as VAC, VIHA and the nursing and support staff at St. Joseph’s and The Views Care Home for their compassionate care of Lilian in her last days.
Please joins us for a Celebration of Life on Saturday, Nov. 22, from 2-4pm at Comox Community Baptist Church, 1250 Anderton Rd. Comox.
