Lillian Joyce Bay
Lil passed away on Saturday, August 25th, 2012 at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Lil was born on August 8th, 1932 in Edmonton, Alberta. Lil was for the most part a stay at home mom raising her three boys. She also enjoyed her time working in Cranbrook at “The Bay” where she was fondly called “Mrs. Bay” at the Bay.
Lil is survived by her loving husband of 57 years, Edward, better known as Muggs, and her three sons and seven grandchildren. Rod, wife Nina and grandchildren Brad and Ashley of Sherwood Park, Alberta; Rick and grandchildren Shelby, Kyra and Breanna of Cranbrook; Greg, wife Jennifer and grandchildren Annabella and Katelyn of Abbotsford, British Columbia.
Lil also leaves behind a loving family: Marty and Sherri Babiuk of Edmonton; Ed and Marg Babiuk of Chilliwack; Ron and Susan of Grande Prairie; Claudia Chahley of Kelowna; Leonard and Silvia Bay of Trail; Jean Stenburg of Vernon; Jack and Chris Bay of Vernon; Allison Bay of Vernon; and Ted and Dorothy Mathews of Spokane.
A visitation for Lil will be held at McPherson Funeral Home in Cranbrook on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm. Her funeral service will be held at McPherson Funeral Home in Cranbrook on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 11:00 am with Pastor Werner Froese officiating.
Lil was loved and respected by all that knew her as a kind and caring person. One that was always willing to help friends and strangers alike. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, that you please do an act of random kindness for a stranger in her memory.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
