    We were saddened to read of Lil’s passing.
    Reading her name in the paper brought back a flood of fun memories. We spent a lot of time at the bowling ally, Tuesday night was ladies league. She and my Mom, Helen Ager bowled on many Western Canada Championships together.
    Take Care

    I am so sad to learn of my grandmother’s passing this way. She was a wonderful woman I got to meet only twice since I was a baby but we exchanged letters every couple months for almost 20 years. So glad I got to see her a few years ago
