January 14, 1930 – February 16, 2021
Well, my time has come to say farewell to all those who have touched and enriched my life upon this earth. I thank you. My journey on earth has ended and I look forward to reuniting with my parents, Mr. & Mrs. C.D. Hoy; my siblings, Evelyn Sing, Ann Lore, Rose Reardon, Yvonne Wong, Star Chew, Benny Hoy, Jack Hoy and Irene Hoy. What a fun time it will be.
And to those I leave behind: my dearest husband Frank, who made all my dreams come true. My children: Tova Orr (Darrell), Kent Webster (Terri), Paris Webster (Sheila). My step-children: Lorrie Shaw (Garry), Steve Price (Michele). My sisters; May Sing, Lona Joe and Marline Liu, and my grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many friends. Do not grieve my departure. I've lived a wonderful life traveling the world, playing sports, writing, painting, dancing to my own tune and above all, having your support and love.
Yes, I'm on another journey. Where to? I don't know, but I have my traveler's cheques in hand. I hope I was a good mother, a good wife and a good friend. As proof of my earthly existence I leave behind a trace of my existence- my book, my paintings and scribblings.
Lily passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by love and family, on Tuesday, Feb 16th, 2021. As per her wishes, there will be no formal service. To honour her memory, please lend a helping hand to someone in need, as she had often done.

My dad Louie Hong as well as Uncles Ray & Pat, Aunts May & Lil knew all the Hoy “kids” as well!
Heartfelt condolences from the Hong family to yours and may you have Peace in the coming days.

I was lucky to meet Lily through the Comox Valley Writers’ Society. She was always encouraging in a straight-forward way. I appreciated that she knew herself and unapologetically spoke her mind. She had an amazing zest for life, no matter the (temporary) obstacles. I always felt comfortable in her company. My condolences to Frank and the rest of her family.

I didn't know Lily for long but she left a lasting impression on me. Her zest for life, her vast experiences and her willingness to encourage others to share their joy through stories. Thanks Lily.

Lily Hoy was a saint. I should know because I was married to her for almost 15 years .
