Obituary for Lillian Wright

Lillian Wright (nee Livingstone) peacefully departed to be with her Lord on May 28, 2023, at the age of ninety-two. Born on September 6, 1930, in Collingwood, Ontario, she was the cherished daughter of Gladys and Arthur Livingstone. Lillian, one of ten children, received her Elementary and High School education in Collingwood.

Lillian is survived by her devoted husband of seventy-one years, Donald James Wright. Together, they raised a beautiful family of five children, with one angelic child who passed away in infancy, Donald Jr. They created a nurturing home in Toronto, Calgary, and Collingwood, providing a foundation of love and support for their children.

Beloved mother of Janice (Daniel), Barry (Irene), Donna (Dallas), and Peter (Jackie), Lillian was a proud and adored Grandma to Kristin, Rachel (Val), Daniel-Adam, Joshua; Sarah (Nathan), Peter; Jason (Megan), Lee-Anne (Warren), Kara (Steven), Katelyn (Nathan); Michael, Noah, and Nicole. She also held a special place in her heart as a Great-Grandma to Alina, Georgia; Elizabeth, Olivia; Margot, Ethan; Isla, Hudson, and Sawyer.

Lillian's life was a masterpiece of artistry, woven into the fabric of everyday existence. She cultivated a beautiful home, nurtured her family, and held a deep Faith. As a remarkable homemaker, she skillfully infused her surroundings with elegance and warmth. Lillian's passion for learning was insatiable, reflected in her pursuit of numerous University courses. A gifted Bible teacher, she shared her wisdom and spiritual guidance with others throughout her life.

Her unwavering support as a wife, her caring nature as a mother and grandmother, and her radiant smile and sparkling eyes made Lillian a beacon of love. Her home was a sanctuary filled with life, delectable cooking, gracious hospitality, and contagious laughter. Lillian's Faith and her profound relationship with Jesus Christ shone brilliantly, inspiring all those around her.
