I remember Lilly when she was a volunteer at Trinity United Church at the Mom's and Tot's group Tuesday(?) mornings. she was a lovely lady and made our time in the group so enjoyable. We always got a warm hello if any of us Moms met her on the street. A volunteer extraordinaire.

Lilly was an amazing lady. I had many great chats with her. I visited her regularly when she was at the apartment - and saw her again at Cobourg Retirement. One of the things I remember her telling me that she was the first "black" person in Cobourg ... She was lovely. Jayne Psw
