Shirley Elizabeth (Bolger) Lillycrop
God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered…”Come with me”.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Shirley Elizabeth (Bolger) Lillycrop in her 75th year on Monday, May 1, 2017 at Parkwood Hospital with her family by her side.
Shirley fought valiantly but finally succumbed to the vulnerabilities of Leukemia. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Robert “Bob” Lillycrop, their children Tracy Hernandez and Sheri Malandruccolo and their spouses Jim and Guiliano. Shirley was the proud grandmother of Jakob Benko and Alyssa Hernandez and the cherished sister of Jean (Bolger) Hutchison and Larry Bolger. She was also loved by her three nieces, five nephews and sister-in-law Doreen Lillycrop.
Shirley was predeceased by her parents Harold Bolger and Elva Mae Pryce, and brothers-in-law Jack Lillycrop, Ted Lillycrop and Bill Hutchison.
Cremation has taken place and in keeping with Shirley’s wishes there will not be a funeral. However, there was a graveside service to inter her cremated remains at Brussels Cemetery on Monday, May 8. Hillary MacDonald officiated. A reception at Brussels United Church followed.
As an expression of sympathy, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the London Regional Cancer Program would be appreciated by the family.
