It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lila Aldia Glock; beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister and aunt. Lila passed away peacefully at Mountain Lakes Seniors Community on March 24th, 2016, in Nelson B.C. Lila was predeceased by her husband Harvey Glock on June 10, 2014.
Lila was born December 23rd, 1929, in Vernon, B.C. She grew up in the Squaw Valley and Lumby area, and completed grade 12 in Lumby, BC.
Harvey and Lila met at a dance in Lumby in 1946 and married in 1950. They lived in Armstrong, Quesnel and Narcoslee; settling in Nelson BC in 1962. Their relationship spanned 68 years. During their 64 year marriage they raised three daughters; Sally Glock, Debbie Lamoureux (Frank Stalinski), Rae Macklon (Chuck), and one Grandson, Quinn Glock (Sharla).
As a Mom, Lila was generous and kind. She always had time to share her artistic talents and her wisdom. Mom/Grandma was a compassionate person, always there with a hug and special words to comfort us when we needed it.
Lila worked at Mount St Frances Hospital as the seamstress for 23 years and retired at age 65 in 1994. She loved her job and her coworkers and continued to sew and socialize with many of them after her retirement.
Lila belonged to the Anglican Church Women’s group, the Kinettes, and the Independent Order of Foresters. She volunteered for Meals on Wheels and Broader Horizons.
A passion for Lila was her quilting. She was an active member of the Kootenay Quilters Guild as long as she could participate and won many awards. Lila loved to play cards and bingo. She loved to bake and do craft work.
Lila also loved to fish. In 1984 Lila caught a 22 lb Gerard rainbow trout on Kootenay Lake near their trailer located at Woodbury Creek Resort.
Lila and Harvey loved to travel, take cruises and gamble. They enjoyed ballroom dancing, country & bluegrass music, and spending time with their family and friends.
Lila had a great sense of humor and was quick witted. She always had something nice to say no matter what the situation was.
Mom, Grandma (Charlene and BJay Pasutti, and Natasha McCreight). Great-Grandpa (Kira, Josh and Adam, Celine and Taylor, Zackery and Jackson), you will be sadly missed by all of us and you will live in our hearts every day, forever.
Please join us for a Celebration of Lila’s life on April 15, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Saviors Pro Cathedral, followed by a light reception at Thompson Funeral Home to showcase Lila’s life.
