She is also survived by brothers Ted (Mo) Settle of Kaslo and Gordon (Leny) Settle of Trail, sister-in-laws Bernice of Winlaw, and Freda of Nelson as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Lillian is predeceased by brothers John and Tom.

Cremation has taken place, no service at Lillian’s request.

A celebration of Lillian’s life will be held in Winlaw in July.
