Apr. 2, 1926 – Oct. 19, 2019

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, LUCILLE “LOU” LILLIAN MILROY (née Hill) at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the age of 93 years.

Lou will be lovingly remembered by her two daughters: Barbara (Keith) Deacon of Red Deer, AB and Sandra (Earl-deceased) Osterberg of Lethbridge; grandchildren Garry (Liz) Watson of Salmon Arm, BC, Deanna (Shawn) McClintock of Parkville, BC and Ron Osterberg; great-grandchildren Sydney and Alyssa McClintock and Tyler and Terilyn MacDonald; and great-great-grandchild Aurora Wilson of Calgary. Lou is also survived by her siblings: Ken Hill, Dan Hill, Jim Hill and Esther Valerio and many nieces and nephews.

Lou was born and raised in Lethbridge; the sixth of a family of 13. She was married for 70 years to the late Andrew “Nap” Milroy, our dear dad. From humble beginnings, together they built a better life for themselves and their children. Lou was hardworking and fun-loving. She loved her family and she created many wonderful memories for them to cherish for a lifetime.

With heartfelt gratitude, we thank the EMT’s and ER nurses for providing excellent care and the nursing staff on 4B and Hala Ibrahim for the compassionate care given to our mother and the support shown to our family. We especially want to thank Mom’s medical team: Drs. Andrews, Janzen and Smuts for their exceptional and compassionate care.

Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of Life honouring our mother with tributes for our father at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, October 25, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. with Pastor Harold Cooper officiating with a Reception and Interment to follow.
