Lila Marsh

June 18, 1927 - June 22, 2013


Lila Lorine Marsh (Arneson), 86, passed away peacefully after a short time in Oliver Hospital. Her family was at her side.

Lila was born in Roros, Alberta on June 18, 1927 and received her angel wings on June 22, 2013.

Mom loved to visit over coffee, gardening and travel. She had just returned from a trip to Arizona this spring and planning to travel to Seattle to watch a Mariners game at the end of July. She also had a great love of sports, mostly hockey and the Vancouver Canucks. One of her biggest thrills was going to a Canucks/Oilers game in Edmonton with her sister Irene, in her Oilers jersey, and mom in her Canucks shirt. Curling was her other favorite.

She was a member of St. Paul Lutheran church in Oliver, BC. Her unwavering faith in God helped guide her life. She enjoyed the companionship and fellowship of her church.

Mom was predeceased by her loving husband of 36 years, Carden Angus Marsh. She was also predeceased by her son Michael, brothers Henry, Selmer and Benny Arneson, sisters, Mrytle Rolston, Sadie Krinbill. She leaves behind her three sons and one daughter; Brian, wife Debbie, children Jillian and Caitlynn. Tom, wife Kathy, children Tina, Cory-Lynn and Laura. Patty, husband Bob, children Michael, Greg and Kevin. Ken, wife Barb and their child Christy. Her sister Irene, the Oilers fan, resides in Alberta.

Mom had a huge amount of family, from British Columbia all the way back to Nova Scotia that she kept in contact with. She most enjoyed conversations with Rose King, niece, in Nova Scotia and many visits from Marlene and Lorne Person, niece, from Alberta.

The family would like to thank the staff at Oliver Hospital for their care and kindness shown to mom.

Mom's service will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church at 1 pm on Thursday June 27, 2013

Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

Rosemary called with news of Aunt Lila’s passing. I went online and as soon as I saw her picture, I cried.. she looked just like I remembered her. She was always a fun loving lady, and one that my mom, Aunt Joe always loved. I lost track with all my BC relatives, especially when Patti moved from Burns Lake, my love to each of you and hope that you will remember her as I do for all the wonderful memories. Cousin Burnie
