<div itemprop="description">Lucille "Lucy" Caroline Anderson <br> <br>She was born in Wisconsin, USA on July 29, 1920. She lived there with her parents and younger brother. She had fond memories of her family's cabin in the woods and her father's love of fly-fishing. In 1955 she moved to Canada with her husband George and two young daughters Kathleen and Marilyn. She spent the majority of her life on Kencliff Crescent where she met many wonderful friends and neighbors and joined St. Andrews church. <br> <br>There was not much that Lucille had not done during her 95 years! She was a fencer, an actor, a jewelry maker, baker, candle maker, knitter, sewer and most recognized by those who knew her well later in life, a creative and experienced quilter or as she said "fabric painter". <br> <br>Many of her years in Canada were spent as a "quartermaster" with the Girl Guides of Canada. She loved that and would tell stories of having to feed over 100 girls and trying to console the few that were scared to be away from home. She would tell us how she had to hold the girls hands so they would get to sleep at night. <br> <br>One of her fondest memories was of her time in San Francisco as an assistant in General Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower's army. She loved the city and the role she got to participate in during the war. She would tell us that she was sworn to many secrets and would never breathe a word, which is exactly what she did. <br> <br>Lucille was a generous caring and creative person who was always learning and mastering a new hobby to enhance her knowledge in life. She even spent her last few years crocheting animals and even added extra pieces like a hat or scarf that was not a part of the original pattern. <br> <br>She spent her last few years at Trilogy long term care. While there she met so many wonderful people who enjoyed spending time with her. She went on trips to Centre Island and the Aquarium and to see Christmas lights. Her days were full of activities and creativity which suited her just fine. <br> <br>Her family was her most important accomplishment and she loved spending time with them. She is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, granddaughters and son-in-law and great grandchildren. She will be missed by all that knew her and fondly remembered in all our lives. <br></div>
