August 31, 1921 - December 12, 2019

Peacefully at Donwood Manor on December 12, 2019, God sent His angels to guide our Mom to her eternal home.
She was predeceased by her husband, the love of her life, Nelson James Storsley, in August, 2007, after sixty five years of marriage.
She is survived by her three sons, James (Donna), Dennis and Elson (Evelyn); and one daughter, Darlene Stefanko (Wayne). She is survived by seven grandchildren, Leroy Storsley (Joanne), Jennifer Zimmer (David), Leighton Storsley (Jamie), Sharenda Wiebe (Charles), Devin Bray (Amanda), Dustin Storsley (Ashley) and Jay Storsley (Luydmilla). She is also survived by thirteen great-grandchildren: Ava, Hanna and Lucas Storsley; Brittany, Braden and Owen Boyko; Elianna, Everett and Ewan Storsley; Smith and Liam Wiebe; Scarlette Lilly Bray, and Luka Storsley.
She is also survived by four sisters: Rose Kelbert, Norma Nicholson (Eric), Velma Wittmeier (Gerry), Sadie Dewey; and two sisters-in-law, Marion Wurch and Myrle Herrold. She was predeceased by her three brothers: Leonard, Irvin and George Wurch; and sisters, Alice Boss and Edna Williams. She was also predeceased by numerous brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law as well.
Mom's career was her family. She used her many talents to bless us over the years. She was an excellent cook and baker. We all enjoyed the fresh produce from her garden, year after year. Her flower beds were amazing. Mom and Dad were life members of the St. Ouens Country Church and sang many perfectly harmonized duets.
The family would like to thank the compassionate staff at Donwood Manor who cared for Mom for almost eleven years; particularly, Personal Care Ward, Two South.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Ave. East, Beausejour. Viewing will be one hour prior to the service.
Flowers are gratefully declined. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the St. Ouens Country Church Cemetery Fund or charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Thank you to everyone in the family for bringing back all those wonderful memories at Auntie Lily's funeral. I will be forever grateful for all the laughs, front licence plates, trips to church, cans on the road, fellowship, food and prayers during my impressionable years growing up right next door on Storsley Road. I will continue to visit Auntie Lily at the St Ouens/Lydiatt cemetery often and look for jam jams in the cookie house. -Manny (now in Pinawa) - Posted by: Manny Jacob (neighbor) on: Jan 13, 2020
