Lily Adalaide Irwin

Lily Adalaide Irwin

(nee Sampson)

Feb. 29, 1940 – Oct. 1, 2014


Lil continued her journey from this life to the next, passing peacefully, surrounded by her family. Lil was a lifelong resident of Saltspring and survived by her children Kurt (Lisa) Irwin, Leona (Pat) Sloan, Gerri (Cameron) Irwin and her grandchildren Wendy, Daniel, Dahlia, Tyler and Amanda, brothers Charley, Vic, Ken, sister Ivy as well as a very large circle of friends.

Lil was a loving and talented person, proud of her heritage including her First Nations lineage and as one of the founding families on Saltspring.  Lil will live on in our hearts through her art, bonds of friendship and outgoing personality.  Active right to the end, Lil was involved in local activities such as the Saltspring Toy Run, Tennis, Volunteer Fire Department, baseball and generally being part of the community. She loved to travel and enjoyed several trips to Mexico and the US.

Lil your laugh, joy for life and loving ways will be missed, you are in our hearts and minds, we know you are watching over us and dancing every night.

A celebration of life will be held November 1st at the Saltspring Legion – 1:00pm to 6:00pm.

In Lieu of flowers please donate to the BC Cancer Society or BC Children’s Hospital.

Warmest appreciation to the Staff of the Lady Minto Hospital for taking care of Lil.
