Cape Breton Post - - In Memoriam -

Pe­tit De Grat

It is with heart­felt sad­ness that we an­nounce Lillian’s pass­ing on May 9, 2017 at the

Strait Rich­mond Hospi­tal, Evanston. Lillian 85, died peace­fully in her sleep, sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in West Arichat, she was the daugh­ter of the late Wil­fred and Kather­ine (Forg­eron) Ranson.

Lillian is sur­vived by daugh­ters, Shirley Benoit (Bren­den), Leah (Wil­lard) Sam­son, Edith Boudreau; sons, James (Anne) Landry and Fran­cis (Cather­ine) Landry; broth­ers, Ch­es­ley and James (Delores) Ranson; 21 grand­chil­dren, 30 great-grand­chil­dren and two great-great­grand­chil­dren.

She was pre­de­ceased by her par­ents; hus­band, Fran­cis; sons, Eti­enne Landry in in­fancy and Alzear; daugh­ters, Therese Bullen and Jac­que­line Landry; broth­ers, Am­brose Forg­eron, Burt and Ben­nie Ranson; sis­ter, Delia in in­fancy; sis­ters-in-law, Mary Forg­eron, Frances and Mar­i­lyn Ranson; daugh­ter-in­law, Marie Paul and sons-in­law, Ben­nie Benoit and Wal­ter Boudreau.

Lillian was a strong, hard­work­ing woman who loved her fam­ily and lived life to the fullest. She en­joyed many hob­bies such as bingo, knit­ting, play­ing cards and walk­ing.

Over the years, she shared many of these hob­bies with her fam­ily and friends. Lillian’s hu­mour and gen­eros­ity shone through in every­thing she did and ev­ery­one she met.

We will for­ever be grate­ful for our time with her and she will al­ways hold a spe­cial place in our hearts.
