Tillie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She set an example by praying quietly, thinking deeply, giving generously and living simply. She was devoted to her family and was greatly loved by them.
Our family would like to thank the Heart Function Clinic, especially Dr. Janzen and Tara for excellent and compassionate care over the last several years.
A Private family graveside service will take place with Father Tim Boyle officiating.
