It is with admiration but burdened hearts we announce the passing of our courageous and beautiful mother and grandmother. Lucille was predeceased by the love of her life, husband of 61 years, Jerry on May 19, 2010 and her dearest brother, George Collins on June 03, 2013.
Lucille is survived by four children; Janis (Neale) Georgy, Darryl (Beverley) Lang, Roslyn (Bernie) Lang-Dumanowski, and Brett (Roxanne) Lang; ten grandchildren, Kevin, Jason (Krista), Stephen (Candace), Gerald, David (Delesa), Daniel, Brittney, Jade, Brayden, Kim (Stuart); and four great-grandchildren, Chaise, Kaitlin, Keenan and Dane.
Lucille was an outstanding cook and a gracious host. Lucille worked as a medical receptionist and then at The Hudson’s Bay Company and Canada Safeway. Retiring in 1986 after many years of dedicated service, Lucille enjoyed her retirement years with Jerry wintering in Palm Springs, California.
Lucille was a loving and supportive mother, grandmother and mentor. Mom/Nana, you will be deeply missed and always remembered.

If family or friends desire to make a donation in Lucille’s name please consider the Parkinson Society Canada, The Heart and Stroke Foundation, or the CNIB. We would like to thank all the staff at Chinook Hospice for the exceptional care and compassion given by a group of truly wonderful caregivers.
Under A Blood Red Moon
By Brett Lang
Under a blood red moon
He let you leave us today
Now all the pain has gone away
Not a moment too soon
Under a blood red sky
In your loving memory
Love in our hearts will set you free
God only knows you tried
Now the sun begins to shine
We’ll wipe the tears away
In our thoughts and heart you’ll stay
To the end of time
Daylight give way to a blood red moon
Was the day she said goodbye
Salted faces from tears cried dry
“A Toast” To being all together, not a moment too soon
We all love you “Mamma Bear” and will forever miss you XO
I wrote this for Mom but dedicate it to Roslyn and Bernie & Janis and Neale for their never ending devotion of time and love
