Lillian Violet Oliver

January 28, 1950 to June 16, 2024


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear Lilly.  Lillian Violet Oliver lost her battle with cancer on June 16, 2024 at the age of 74.

Predeceased by her parents Dolph and Mina Oliver of New Perlican, her sisters Rose Snelgrove and Arlene Oliver.

Leaving to mourn her special sisters Judy Crocker (Bert), Linda Tuck (Lester); brothers Norm Oliver (Glenda), Pete Oliver (Doris), Ches Oliver (Mary).

Lill never had any children but loved her nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews like they were her own.  Lill loved her family and our family get-togethers she cherished more than anything.  She loved a good sing along, Christmas, backyard BBQs, family days, a good game of Rummoli, and of course a Pepsi and a smoke!

Lill had many life-long friends and new ones she met along the way at Bishop Meade Manor.

The family would like to thank all those who spent their time taking care of Lill over the past little while…sitting with her…bringing her food…phone calls and drop ins.  They meant the world to her.

Special thanks to Dr. Power, Dr. Saldanha, Dr. MacAulay Vacheresse, and Dr. Bragg for their care of Lill during her long cancer fight.  Special thanks to all the staff at Cradea Manor for making Lill feel so special and treating her like a queen in her short time there.

Cremation has taken place, and a private family gathering will be held at a later date.

“There are special people in our lives who never leave us…even after they are gone…”
