Lillian (Alcorn) LoveAugust 5, 1917 ~ April 26, 2017 (age 99)
Lillian Love passed away on April 26th, in the Bulkley Lodge in Smithers, just a few months short of her 100th birthday.
Lillian was born to William and Hetty Alcorn on August 5th, 1917 in Schreiber, On. She took nurses training in Port Arthur, On. then headed west, first to Quesnel and then to Hazelton. In 1948, she married Wilfred (Bill) Love and together they raised three children, Marlene, Bill Jr., and Judy. Lil was always the ‘nurse in residence’ for the Kispiox Valley, often called on for advice and assistance. She was a feisty, talented and caring person. Well known for her great cooking and famous for her doughnuts. Her great grandkids loved her fresh from the oven buns with homemade freezer strawberry jam. She created beautiful wedding and other special occasion cakes complete with handmade decorations. She loved to sew and crochet, making many gifts for new babies, family and friends. She was a special lady, and was very loved. She will live on thru our many, many memories.
Lillian was predeceased by her parents William and Hetty; brothers Reynold and Bud; husband Bill; son Bill Jr.; grandchildren Rhonda and Corina; best friends Jessie and Lena; and by many others too numerous to mention.
A heartfelt thank you to the staff of Bulkley Lodge in Smithers for their patience, care and compassion. Also to the very caring and generous staff and volunteers at the Bulkley Valley Hospice Society.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Bulkley Valley Hospice Society would be much appreciated, PO Box 8, Smithers, BC V0J 2N0.
