Born in Vancouver on December 8th, 1912, died peacefully at Yucalta Lodge on December 11th, 2003. A resident of Campbell River for sixty-seven years, she was predeceased by her first husband, Michael Golinski and her second husband Dmetri Nichiporuk. She will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughters, Fia and grandsons Nick and Chris Goulet; Gail Kretz and her partner Don Engle; and her son Nick (Joy) and grandchildren Carmen, Michael (Jessica) and Karen Golinski. Lily will be remembered as a great friend, lunch date, crafts woman, and a member of many community groups, including the Campbell River Garden Club and the Women’s Institute.
The family is especially grateful for the wonderful care and comfort given to our mother and grandmother by Dr. Walker and the entire Yucalta Lodge staff.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Yucalta Lodge, the Campbell River Museum or the Arthritis Society.
A celebration of life tea for friends and family will be held at the home of her son on Saturday, December 27th, between 1 and 4 pm.
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done
I’d like to leave an echo
down the ways,
of happy times and
and bright and sunny days
I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun
of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.
