Anderson (nee Gogol), Lillian Shirley
February 14, 1930 – November 12, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lillian Anderson after a brief battle with cancer. Lil will always be remembered by her sons Kenneth (Bonita), Joseph (Debra) and Frank (Theresa); cherished grand children Kelly (Tom) Lesko, Cameron (Brittany) Anderson, Julie (Ryan) Mehler, Curtis Anderson, Caitlin Anderson, Michelle Schill; and her sister Carol (Larry) Kohsel. Lil was blessed with nine great grandchildren: Emilia, Harper, Felix, Charlotte, Kasper, Brooks, Hadley, Ryder and Kohen. Lil was pre-deceased by her loving husband of 59 years, Floyd and infant daughter Roseanne.
Lillian was born in Bassano, Alberta February 14, 1930 and married Floyd in 1951. Together, Lil and Floyd raised their family on the farm at Rumsey. Life was very busy with three boys yet Lil and Floyd always found time to volunteer and contribute generously to the community. They retired from the farm in 2000 and moved to Drumheller, reuniting with old friends and making new “condo” friends. Family, friends and hosting a good meal defined Lil and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were a huge part of her life bringing her much joy.
Thank you to Drs. Olfert and Mateer and the kind and compassionate nursing staff at the Drumheller Health Centre who made Lil’s final days so comfortable.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Drumheller Area Health Foundation or a charity of your choice.
Funeral Mass by invitation, the family is having a luncheon for invited guests, please bring your proof of vaccination, or a negative test result to the luncheon to the Badlands Community Facility (upstairs). Thank you
