Mom worked so hard over the years and when she sat down, her lap would be filled with crochet cotton. From which she made tablecloths for loved ones and wool socks for the Lower Granville Christmas Tea. She was a well-known “flower gardener” with so much gardening knowledge. Many flowers are adorning gardens all across N.S., N.B. and Ont. No one left without a shoot, plant or tree. She was a proud member of the Annapolis Royal Garden Club, hiking and walking club, past member of the Port Royal Sewing Circle and Port Royal Coffee Club. Lillian was an avid reader and a member of the St. George and St. Andrew United Church. She loved to cook and bake, serving many meals over the years. She loved watching the woodpeckers and humming birds, keeping their feeders filled. No visitation by request.
