RYAN, Violet Lillian Beatrice
April 30, 1919 – July 6, 2015
Our mother Lillian passed away peacefully at the Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna, BC. She was 96 years young. She is survived by sons Jim (Donna) and Jack (Alana); 5 grandchildren: Todd (Tina), Chad, Nathan, Marshall and Shawna (Brodie); great granddaughter Ivy. She is also survived by two of her sisters, Grace Oliver and Maizie Howard, sister-in-law Marion Ryan and many nieces and nephews.
Mom was predeceased by our father Art in July, 2012. They had been married for 66 years. She has really missed Dad these past 3 years and now they will be united again. She was born in Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan on April 30, 1919 and after high school graduation she trained as a registered nurse at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon. Mom and Dad lived in Hope for 54 years where she was a member of the Eastern Star. For the past 9 years Mom has resided at Lakeshore Place Assisted Living Center in Kelowna. Mom will be buried with Dad at a family ceremony in the Legion Cemetery in Hope. All of us will surely miss her as we have our Dad.
