Lilian Reimer 1916-2012

Lilian Laura REIMER (née Jones) – Lilian passed away early Thursday morning, March 22 at her home in Vancouver. She was born on September 7, 1916 in London, England, third child of John Jones and Emily Parker. After John died in the closing years of WWI, Emily brought her two young girls (Rose Emily and Lilian) to Canada – eventually settling near Rocanville, SK. It was here that she met, married, and raised four more children with John Edwin Dumville.

Lilian met Peter Reimer in Regina and they married on November 11, 1937 in Rocanville. They moved to Vancouver in 1941 and raised three sons – enjoying 70 years together before Peter died in 2007. Lilian is survived by one of her brothers (Clifford), two of her sisters (Lorraine and Elaine), her three sons (Peter, William, and Robert), 10 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. She will be remembered for her unfailing support of those around her, keen and critical interest in the events of the world, and joy over the gatherings of family members.
