NOWAKOWSKY, Lillian Nately

January 30, 1937- Fedorah, AB
August 31, 2013 – Calgary, AB

Lillian Nowakowsky, beloved wife and soul mate of Edison Nowakowsky of Calgary, Alberta, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 31, 2013.

Lill and Ed enjoyed 55 years of wedded bliss – always together, always inseparable. Her family and friends were the most important things in her life and she will always be remembered for the love, affection and caring she showered on both.

Lill always saw the positive things in life, and found only good in everyone she met. As a result she made and enjoyed many long lasting friendships. In October 2012, she was diagnosed with cancer, and true to form remained positive, courageous, and elegant right up to the end.

Lill is survived by her loving husband, her children Dean and daughter-in-law Catherine, Robert and daughter-in-law Michele, Karen and six grandchildren; Tom, Will, Kaitlin, Terese, Courtney and Cameron.

A Celebration of Lill’s Life will be celebrated at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 2 p.m. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, Provincial Office, Sun Life Place, 710, 10123 – 99th Street, Edmonton, AB T5J 3H1 Telephone: 1(866) 412-4222.

    So sorry to hear about Lill’s passing.

    I remember Roger and I picking you up very early for a ski (?) day and being welcomed by fresh blueberry muffins that Lill had gotten up even earlier to bake. She was a sweet lady.
