Lillian Howes

Lillian Howes, who passed away in Langley BC on April 19, 2015 was born Lillian Hunter in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne England on December 20, 1920. She married Norman Howes during WWII and came to Canada as a war bride at the end of the war – settling in Saskatoon Sask.

Lillian (Lily) eventually made her way to Blind Bay in the mid 70’s where she helped set up and run the Bayside Marina in Blind Bay – settling in Shuswap Lake Estates until the death of her husband, Norman Howes, in 2005 when she moved to the lower mainland to be with her children.

Lillian is survived by her four children; Carole, Douglas, Donald and Janice – her six Grandchildren and six Great Grandchildren.

There will be a Remembrance and Internment Ceremony held at St. Mary’s Church, SORRENTO, on Friday October 9th at 12:00 (noon) for both Lillian Howes and Norman Howes. Anyone who knew them and would like to attend with the family and friends are more than welcome.
