Lillian Elsie Walker (nee Marcolli)

March 20, 2023


January 1, 1922 - March 20, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
Lil was the seventh child of John Walker and Ellen Jane Cook, born January 1, 1922, in Calgary, AB.
Lil passed away on March 20, 2023, in Kamloops, B.C. at 101 years young.
She was predeceased by her husband Henry (1972) and daughter Betty (2019).
She is survived by her children Marie (Bob) of Kelowna, B.C., Shirley of Weyburn, SK, Lonie (Al) of Kamloops, B.C., Bill (Megan) of Nakusp, B.C., Wendy of Kelowna, B.C., and Karrie (Dan) of Revelstoke, B.C. Also left to cherish Lil's memory are 12 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.
Our mom (Lil) was a strong, independent, and humble woman. Her family was very dear to her and her source of pride. We were often reminded how lucky she felt to have all of us. Our mom was a hard worker teaching herself how to cook, knit and sew many of our clothes. She was great at making something out of almost nothing.
In mom's later years she enjoyed puzzles, bingo, playing cards and watching hockey and curling.
Mom led a long and happy life but in the end, she was ready for her final journey. Farewell, mom.
You will be missed.
Love, your family.
