September 15, 1924September 17, 2019

Peacefully on Tuesday, September 17, two days after her 95th birthday, Cilla passed away at Oakview Place following a lengthy illness. She was predeceased by her husband of 43 years, Raymond (Paddy). They were married before Dad was posted overseas in 1942. She was just seventeen when she left her family in Winnipeg to go to Victoria and marry her sailor boy. Theirs was a marriage full of love and respect and they absolutely adored one another. She was also predeceased by her eldest son, Ray in 2017 and Tommy, in childhood, in 1955.

Family meant everything to Mom and no request, no matter how big or small, ever failed to get her full attention. She was so very proud of all of us. Left to mourn her passing are Bevy MacLennan, Ken and Rene MacLennan, and Keith and Nancy MacLennan. Missing her deeply are her grandchildren, Colleen and Hamid Zahedi, Scott MacLennan and Diana Chapman, Gillian and Sean Adair, and Rob, Katie and Christie MacLennan and great-grandchildren Holly and Missy Zahedi.

As per Mom’s request cremation has taken place and there will be no service. A Private Interment with Paddy and Tommy at Brookside Cemetery will take place later.

The family wishes to thank the staff and caregivers at Oakview Place for their compassion and care in looking after Mom during her time there.

The family will be very thankful for donations made to the Alzheimer’s Society in her name.
