LILLEY, Georgina Maude (nee Scott)

December 5, 1929 – Penhold, Alberta

Besides her loving husband of sixty-three years, Georgina is survived by two children, Frank (Debra) and Deanna; five grandchildren Remi, Steven, Allison, Blair and Sara and by one great-grandson Jackson. She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends.
