A joy for me to have met this wonderful lady, a friendship we shared for many years. We have lost one of the kindest people I have ever had the privilege to know. Her memories will be cherished forever. To the family, I share in the loss of Lydia, she will be sorely missed. You have my sincere sympathy.

Message from Adair Prouty May 17, 2019

I have many fond memories of Lydia. She helped me so many times when I needed help at home due to surgeries. My children loved it when she came. Because I had no family living here she just helped us so much. We will never forget her and her kindness. I will miss seeing that smiling face and the visits we had - one not too long ago at the 13 Avenue Co-op Bistro. Our condolences to all of you.
