March 24th, peacefully at home Sheila "Lily" Hull passed away, in her 84th year, after battling and often winning, from lengthy illnesses. Loving mother of Jane and Leo Santaluce. Predeceased by her son Tim Kilpatrick. Sheila will be remembered fondly with love and humour by her granddaughters, Emily, Olivia and Francesca. Being their Gma was her greatest joy. She was so proud of her girls. We are blessed with so many memories. She really had an amazing sense of humour. She has provided us with many quotes and antidotes as her reactions to any situation were often quite theatrical.
Sheila was fiercely independent and very strong. Sheila was a teacher by trade. Stopping to raise her family she eventually returned to University at 54 to start her second career as a Social Worker. After retirement, she spent her time volunteering. Even after her granddaughters graduated, Grandma S, as she was affectionately called, still continued to help out in the classroom. She was happiest in a room full of little ones, watching her tv (go sens!!), reading magazines or doing her national post crosswords.
She will be missed by her bff Beatty (not a typo, this time!) and by the girls out East. Tequila thought of you as daughters and loved the times you spent with her. May her nieces, nephews, brother, cousins and friends remember her fondly.
While we are heartbroken, we are comforted by the knowledge she is at peace and reunited with Tim, her parents and the old granny. Friends will be received at Jones Funeral Home on Sunday March 27, from 2 - 4 pm. Memorial service will be held in the chapel on Monday March 28 at 11:00am, with reception to follow.
