Lillian was born and raised in Aylmer, QC. Some of her favourite memories were of the summers spent at the Coleman family cottage in Black Bay, Luskville, QC, and later with the Bergeron family, winters skiing with her brother Edgar and his wife Yvonne. She married Lionel Bergeron and had 2 daughters, Wendy and Donna. She lived and worked many places due to Lionel’s service with the Royal Canadian Airforce. Eventually returning to Aylmer, sadly Lionel passed and Lil moved to Ottawa. She worked with Veterans Affairs where she met and married Leonard Craig. They retired to Smith Falls and enjoyed many years of leisure travel. After Len passed away she moved back to Ottawa. All her family and friends will miss her feisty personality and sense of humour. She loved to dance and now she is dancing in heaven. She will be forever loved and forever remembered.
