LILLIAN MCINTYRE (LIL)
Date of Passing: Feb 15, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
1925 - 2021
Lil was predeceased by her husband Archie in 2004 and her brother Jack Whyard. She leaves behind and will be missed by her daughter Heather, her four sons, Archie (Elaine), Campbell (Lorraine), Ted (Susan), and Hal (Kim); 10 grandchildren, Joanne (Peter), David (Danielle), Kim (Shane), Kevin (Henriette), Leanne (Jeff), Melanie (Chris), Michael (Chassity), Stephen (Kali), Megan (Jason), and Bailey (Dru); her sister Maryanne Ure (Val), and 12 great-grandchildren.
Lil was raised in Norwood, the backdrop for many of the delightful stories about her childhood. She was particularly proud of swimming in the Red River with her pals. Lil was a competitive speed skater as a teenager and won many medals at local and international meets. When she was 17, Lil enlisted and played clarinet in the Army band in Calgary, an adventure that she looked back on fondly her whole life. She worked briefly at the Union Stockyards where she met her husband Archie.
Archie and Lil married in 1945 and raised their family on Beliveau Road in St.Vital. Lil loved being a mom, loved her home, and was always ready to lend a helping hand to her family and community, but her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren. She was always the centre of family gatherings and while she liked a good argument, she enjoyed a good laugh even more.
In their later years, Lil and Archie enjoyed travelling and going to the horse races and casinos.
Cremation has taken place and there will be no formal ceremony.
The family wishes to thank the staff of the Golden Links Lodge where she lived for the last four years. They provided a warm, welcoming environment and we are grateful for their kindness and care.
