Whit­ney Pier

It is with bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Lil­lian Lirette, 73, on Tues­day, Jan­uary 24, 2017, peace­fully at home.

Born in Glace Bay, Lil­lian was the daugh­ter of the late James and Feodora (Ber­nasky) Ross.

Lil was strong, gen­er­ous, kind and lov­ing with a won­der­fully dry sense of hu­mour. She loved be­ing sur­rounded by her fam­ily and was al­ways there to help. She was blessed with many friends and fam­ily vis­it­ing her of­ten. She en­joyed en­ter­tain­ing at her home and cook­ing her fa­mous chicken and rice. Lil will be missed by all who knew her.

Af­ter spend­ing 53 years of mar­riage with Sylva and never spend­ing a day apart, they are now back in each other’s arms.

Lil­lian is sur­vived by her son, Jamie (Klara) and two lov­ing grand­chil­dren, Kor­ben and Cal­ista. She also leaves be­hind her sis­ters, Delores (Mike), Ann and Margie; brother, John; nieces, Lind­say, Trena (Rex) and Lillyann (Joey); great-nieces and great-neph­ews, Chantelle, Cole, Te­gan and Joshua; as well as many more lov­ing ex­tended fam­ily mem­bers.

Be­sides her par­ents, Lil­lian was pre­de­ceased by her lov­ing hus­band, Sylva and brother, Jerry.

Me­mo­rial ser­vice for the life of Lil­lian Lirette will be cel­e­brated on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 7, 2017 at 11 a.m. in the Pier Com­mu­nity Funeral Home, All Faith Chapel, 1092 Vic­to­ria Rd. (en­trance on Church Street), with Fr. Paul Mur­phy of­fi­ci­at­ing. In­ter­ment will take place in Res­ur­rec­tion Ceme­tery, Syd­ney Forks.
