In Loving Memory ~

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Lillian at age 83 in Coquitlam, British Columbia after a brief illness.

Lillian is survived by son Greg (Laurie), son Gary and daughter Karen, four grandchildren, six great grandchildren, sister Edith (Ron) and niece Tracey (Bruce).

Predeceased by parents Pauline and Ed Wutke, sister Sharon Darlene, grandson Blaise Aron and granddaughter Heather Loreen.

Lillian was born and raised in the small farming community of Plumas, Manitoba; enjoying friends, baseball, school and a prairie upbringing.

She married Henry Gillich in 1960 and they had three children in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Early fall of 1966 they decided to move to Surrey, British Columbia.

Lillian worked at Woodwards until sadly it closed and she then continued on with the Hudson Bay Company until her retirement. She made many friends at her work and was honored by the HBC for her long, dedicated work career.

Lillian enjoyed meeting friends for coffee at Timmy's, looking through antique stores, collecting Depression glass, anything John Deere. She loved to read; especially John Grisham, she joined a curling team for a couple years in Cloverdale. She was known to drop a few coins in the one-armed bandits at her local casino in Cloverdale.

She loved the Vancouver Canucks...even if they weren't so good some years...she stayed on the Canucks bandwagon!

In lieu of flowers please consider donating to a local charity. Her love of the prairies never left her and she will be laid to rest beside her sister Sharon Darlene at Tupper Cemetery near Plumas, Manitoba to be together again.

A very big thank you to the wonderful staff at The Madison in Coquitlam for treating Lillian with great dignity, respect and tenderness in her time of leaving.

We will be celebrating Lillian at Milner Chapel 6716 - 216th. Street, Langley on March 23rd at 12:00 pm and we will be honored to have those who knew her to attend and reflect.
