Lillian (Lil) Shippit

August 28, 1944 - March 19, 2018

Tribute

It is with great sorrow that the family of Lillian Shippit announce her passing on March 19, 2018 after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.

Lil is survived and lovingly remembered by her husband of 53 years Don Shippit; her children and grandchildren, Dean (Tamra MacKenzie) and Tyler; Glen (Dawn) and John, Amy and Ben; Deanna (Steve) Nemeth and Dillon, Devon and Braedon; plus two great grandchildren.  She is also survived by her mother Betty Davis and sisters Pam Blacklock, Kathleen (Gerald) MacDonald, Donna (Kirby) Balfour and many nieces and nephews.  She is predeceased by her father John Davis.

Lil was born and raised in Oliver where she happily spent her years in her hometown.  Here she met and married Don and they raised their three children together.  Of all her work experience, she was most proud of her time spent as a care aid at South Okanagan General Hospital.  Lil cherished her family and enjoyed time spent with friends.  In later years, some of her favorite memories were travels with Don.  Where they spent time camping in their motorhome Winnie with their two little dogs in tow.

The family would like to thank Dr Myslek and the staff of South Okanagan General Hospital for the loving care and support received during her final days.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Oliver Alliance Church this Saturday March 24, 2018 at 1:00 pm.  A private family interment will be held at the Oliver Cemetery.

As Lil had a place in her heart for cards of special occasion, the family is asking that in place of condolences and sympathy cards, they receive an inspirational card in memory of Lil.  Where they can read about a cherished memory or uplifting message; a keepsake to treasure of her time here with us all.

Donations gratefully accepted for the Hospice Palliative Care Program at SOGH.
