Obituary of Lillian Carr
CARR, Lillian (nee Rate)
Predeceased by her loving husband Bruce, Sept. 21st, 1984.
How do you sum up 97 years of life in a paragraph? Being number 8 in a family of 12, she was sent to live with her grandparents at the age of 7. During the war she was a “bomb girl” and then became a hairdresser. She married the love of her life, Bruce Carr, in 1952. They farmed on McCowan Road, north of Major Mackenzie. She was a very active member of the Melville United Church, north of Unionville, Ont. Lillian was famous for her quilt-making, her baking skills and her beautiful flower and vegetable gardens. She will be forever loved and missed by the many lives she has touched.
A special thank you to the staff of Buckingham Manor and to Dr. Gurau, who have given her such kind, compassionate care.
A funeral service will be held at Dixon-Garland Funeral Home, Markham on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 with visitation at 1 o’clock and service at 2. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Sick Children’s Hospital, Toronto.
