Condolences to Tilly’s family. She worked with my son as he progressed through Grades 3 & 4 (Camrose). She patiently learned more about the solar system then most people just to assist him with an passion he held dear.
Thank you Tilly for your patience and genuine interest in my son’s support needs. You were truly one of a kind.
I miss you Tilly! Although we didn’t know each other for a long time, you quickly became a friend and someone I enjoyed spending time with. I miss your smile and conversation at exercise class. I enjoyed the laughs and comraderi we shared. Stories about your family–spending time with grandchildren or enjoying nature on the back of a motorcycle all resonated with me. I am sad the new chapter of your life as you began retirement ended so quickly.
Blessings and peace to Tilly’s family as you go through this difficult time.
On behalf of 22 Camrose senior ladies I would like to send our sincere sympathy to the family of Tilly. She joined our fitness group last season – September to June and we enjoyed her enthusiasm and her winning smile. Please accept our heartfelt condolences . A memorial donation will be given to the Women’s Shelter here in Camrose.
John and Family

Tilly was one of our very own, formerly of Port Mourant, Guyana , transitioned to her heavenly home after a brief illness in Edmonton, Alberta.
” When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand; she said my place was ready, in heaven far above and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart…”
I have posted the demise of Tilly, our fellow Alumna and friend in my two affiliated links ,” CHS-JCCSS Alumni from the 40’s to the 80’s “, and “Highlights of Port Mourant and the outlying areas.” Many have shared their sympathies, condolences and memories here.
In this time of sorrow and bereavement I would also like to convey deepest symathies to her spouse John, three children, grandchildren and other bereaved family members from the CHS-JCCSS Alumni , The Highlights of Port Mourant , The Rawana and the RamotarSingh families originally from Tilly’s hometown , Port Mourant, Guyana. “Gone to rest, away from sorrow, care, sickness and pain”.
I still have the messages in my cell phone that transpired between me and Tilly in December 2015. She wanted to catch up on all the High School events that took place, where and when , and about her High School form mates.
Even though words are inadequate at this difficult time to fill the empty void or ease your profound loss, may you take comfort in the beautiful times that you have shared with Tilly over the years and the knowledge that her life has brought joy to so many people. Our thoughts and prayers are you.
Thank you John , for finding the strenght through God’s abiding love , grace and mercies to post a response on facebook .
May Tilly’s soul rest in everlasting peace.
