Lillian Katie Collinson (Wallace)

January 1, 1925 - June 25, 2015


In the early morning hours of Thursday, June 25, 2015, Lillian Katie Collinson passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook at the age of 90 years.  Lillian was born on January 1, 1925 in Cranbrook, the daughter of Clark and Evy (Campsall) Wallace.

Lillian was a life-long resident of Cranbrook.  She met Cecil Collinson and married him on February 12, 1941.  They were fortunate to have celebrated 73 years together before Cecil passed away last year.  Lillian and Cecil worked at the Big Butte Dairy Farm in the early years of their marriage.  Once they left the dairy, Lillian worked for Hofort Christmas Tree farm.  Her last 18 years of employment were as the mail order Supervisor of the Eaton’s store and she took her retirement from there.  Lillian had a heart of gold and was always there to help help anyone in need.  She was a loving mother and grandmother and her family will miss her dearly.

Left to mourn Lillian’s passing are her children; Deanna (Frank) Tebbe and Alan (Sharon) Collinson as well as three grandsons; Tim (Cheryl), Jamie and Kevin and one granddaughter, Heather.  Also left behind are three great grandchildren and one great great grandchild as well as many nieces and nephews.  Lillian was predeceased by her loving husband, Cecil,  one granddaughter, Leanna, her brother George and sister, Dorothy.

A Memorial Service for Lillian will be held on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 2:00 pm at Mark Memorial Funeral Home, 2024 Industrial Road No. 2, Cranbrook.  A private family interment will take place before the service.  Condolences may be left for the family at
