Obituary of Lillian Ruby Neil

NEIL, Mrs. Lillian Ruby (1926-2022)


Passed away on Thursday, April 21, 2022, at North Lambton Lodge with family by her side, shortly after celebrating her 96th birthday. Beloved wife of the late Larry Neil (2012). Loving mother of Virginia Neil, Barb Steven (Brian), and John Neil (Carol). She was a loving Nana to Caitlin Steven (Rob), Allison Masse (Jason), Mitchell Steven (Mikayla), Maggie Steven, Connor Neil (Raeane), and Tyler Neil. She was a special Great Nana to her first great-grandchild Holly Masse. She is also survived by her sister Rosemary Wilkie of London and her sister-in-law Karen Munce of Oshawa.


Lillian loved to garden and collect owl figurines. She was a cat lover and also loved to bowl.

Her Grandchildren will forever remember her for teaching them how to paint, her love of Chicken Pot Pies from Swiss Chalet, walking through the Animal Farm and Tarzanland at Canatara Park, lots of Mystery Trips, and her “hoarding” books in her room.


Cremation has taken place. Private family services to take place at a later date. We wish to thank all the staff, PSWs, and nursing staff at North Lambton Lodge for their care shown to our Mom/Nana. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to the North Lambton Lodge Auxiliary or organization of one’s choice. Online condolences may be left at Funeral arrangements entrusted to DENNING’S OF FOREST.
