Lily Ruth GELLNER (nee Silzer)

1928 2008

God saw how very tired Lily was and

with no cure to be found.

He put His arm around her and gently whispered

Come With Me.

Lily left us on May 20, 2008 at Kelowna General Hospital. She was born in Limerick, SK. When she married Jake Gellner, they moved to the west coast and in 1979 moved to Kelowna. She was predeceased by her husband Jake, only son Harvey, parents Otto and Christina Silzer, brother Herb and sister Louise Hiebert. She will be remembered by many cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends. A celebration of her life will be held at the Chapel of Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC on Tuesday, May 27, 2008 at 1:00 pm with Pastor Murv Kentel officiating. Thanks to the staff at Lakeshore Place for the kindness and gentleness they showed Lily.
