Lillian Patricia Chilton
December 27, 1927 – March 13, 2016
It is with great sadness and sorrow that the family of Lillian Chilton announce her passing at the East Kootenay Regional
Hospital in Cranbrook with her family at her side on Sunday, March 13, 2016.
Lillian was the beloved mother of Randy (Bev), Kim (Darlene), Laurel (Steve Emann), Barbara (Daryl Warner) and loving grandmother to Colby and Courtney Emann, Jesse and Lucas Chilton and Keira and Kaitlin Warner. She also dearly loved her cat Tigger. Lillian was predeceased by her cherished companion Fred Chapman, her devoted son Randy, her
parents Maggie and Fred Koshman, brothers Bill and Andy, sisters Marie and Nancy and former husband Bill Chilton. Surviving siblings are Metro, Nick, John, Sandra, Doris and Katharine as well as several nieces, nephews and relatives.
Lil was a very dedicated employee in the dietary department at the St. Eugene Hospital and the Cranbrook Hospital. She was a 48 year member of the L. A. to F.O.E., a 20 year member of the Health Care Auxiliary and received a gold pin for her volunteering at Key City Theatre.
In earlier years, Lil and Fred enjoyed dancing, especially square dancing. They attended many jamborees and curling bonspiels in and around the area.
Lillian requested no funeral service. She would like to be remembered as the woman she was throughout her life time.
We will remember her as a kind, loving, caring, intelligent, strong, determined and very spunky individual. She brought up her four children on her own and we will be forever grateful to have had the BEST MOTHER EVER.
