Lillian Marie Louise Cutts
December 28, 1932 – September 5, 2019
The family of Lillian (Lil) Cutts is profoundly saddened to announce her passing on September 5, 2019. Mom continues to be surrounded by love, and we are comforted by the fact that she had a full and wonderful life. Mom was strong in the Catholic faith and her gentle spirit is at peace, ready to spend the rest of time with Dad, who led the way on this next journey in 2014.
Mom was born in Storthoaks, SK, went to convent school in Gravelbourg and then completed her Nurse’s training at Misericordia Hospital. She moved to Vancouver to work and then returned to Manitoba where she met Dad. After a brief courtship, Mom and Dad were married on March 3, 1962. Mom was a resilient and strong woman, and along with Dad (RCMP) moved our family from Falcon Lake to Arborg, Thompson, The Pas, Selkirk, Winnipeg, East Selkirk, back to Selkirk and then Mom and Dad moved to Winnipeg. Mom enjoyed sports, playing basketball in high school, curling and bowling in a variety of the locations we lived, golfing and doing Tai Chi, and she enjoyed dancing, especially line dancing. After retirement as an operating room nurse at the Selkirk General Hospital, Mom and Dad had 30 happy years travelling in their fifth wheel, meeting so many new friends along the way through a number of fun activities and happy hours.
