It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and a friend of many on May 30, 2022 at Pleasant View Towers at the age of 96. Predeceased by her husband Jack (2021); her son Barry Scott (2017); also parents Robert Hedley and Violet Mootrey; 4 sisters; Queen, Mae, Elsie, Maude; 6 brothers; Tommy, Fred, Chess, David, Reg and Clayton.
She leaves behind her son, Stephen (wife, Linda) 2 daughters, Jacqueline (husband, Walter); Patricia (husband, Eric); 14 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; one sister, Phyllis Drover; many nieces and nephews as well as many friends too numerous to mention by name. Lillian was a very loving and caring person, always putting the welfare of others ahead of her own. Nanna/ Nanna Lillian was dearly loved by all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. They always loved coming to nanna and poppy’s because there were always treats waiting for them regardless of their ages. Her grandchildren will miss her terribly. Lillian was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and her family would like to share just two of her favorite scriptures from the Bible. Her very favorite was Revelation 21:4 which it says in part: “And he (Jehovah God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Lillian believed the Bible verse at John 5:28, 29 which says in part: “the hour is coming in which all in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear his voice (Jehovah God) and come out to a resurrection of life.” Her children also believe these Bible verses which brings them much comfort knowing that their mom is not suffering and that they will see mom and dad again. The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the staff on 2 South West of Pleasant View Towers, especially Team A and Team B. Our mom was there for 19 months and the staff treated her with such care and compassion. They treated her as if she was their mom or grandmother; we couldn’t have asked for better care. We, her family would like to thank them personally for their kind attention and empathy right up to mom’s final hours. Thank you staff on floor 2SW. The family would also like to thank Dr. Essaji for caring for our mother for so many years.
