Predeceased by sister Marilyn Lapa (Matt) and brother John Bilenduke (Pat). Fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and their families. She will be greatly missed by many friends and family members in the local Oshawa area, and in western Canada.
Lillian was a longtime member of Kingsview United Church and its UCW –Del Mar group. She was an enthusiastic supporter of the church’s Annual Christmas Bazaar contributing many handcrafted knitted and crocheted items, as well as a large variety of delicious baked and preserved goodies.
One of her proudest accomplishments, in support of the UCW’s fundraising efforts, was to introduce the Del Mar group to an Easter egg recipe 52 years ago which they continue to use to produce delicious hand-dipped chocolate covered Easter eggs for sale to the church and wider community raising thousands of dollars over the years.
Lillian will be fondly remembered for her caring compassion and enthusiastic enjoyment of social gatherings of family and friends. She looked forward to meeting people and was always curious to learn more about them. But her greatest passion in life was her family. Lillian took great pride and interest in all her family’s accomplishments. And it was this intense interest and inclusion in her family’s life that helped to sustain her through the many health challenges she faced in the later years.
She wanted to be there and share in all the major milestones of her family’s lives, such as the recent birth in March of her first great grandchild, Amaleigh.
Her favourite song, “You are My Sunshine”, which she enjoyed singing at family parties and was a true reflection of her personality, has been rewritten to show her family’s love for her...
You were our sunshine, our only sunshine. You made us happy, when skies were gray. You’ll always know, Dear, how much we loved you. We’ll always remember your sunny ways...
The family extends their heartfelt appreciation to the medical staff at Lakeridge Health Oshawa – 5th Floor Cardiac Ward and Hillsdale Estates, for their excellent professional care and compassion.
Donations in memory of Lillian may be made to Kingsview United Church, to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or to the Lakeridge Health Foundation.
