In Memory

Lydia Lee Turbis Lonsdale

Lee left us on May 3rd, 2017 after receiving God’s blessing in the Last Rites. Lydia attended St. Basil’s and St. Pat’s schools before leaving for Vancouver which became her home. As we were a close family she visited frequently up to a few years ago.

Lydia was always a star – very pretty, lovely smile and happy attitude to life. She was very creative and always strived to make her surroundings reflect her good taste.

Arriving in Vancouver, she was job hunting. Being Lee, she forgot the company address and wound up somewhere else where she was hired. That bit of luck changed her life. She became part of the mining business when it was at its height – the 70’s and 80’s she was successful, had a beautiful home filled with beautiful things. She lived the high life, great clothes, travel and fun times. But she was always our Lethbridge Lee. She introduced us to and included us all in another world. Our lives would not have been as interesting without her.

So we salute you, dear one, for your insight into others, for your “Auntie Mame” self – what a life you lived!

Thanks for the memories

Your Family
