They farmed near Orkney, SK for the next 29 years where they raised their family. In 1992, Lillian and George moved to Regina to work as property managers before retiring in 1999. Lillian had a deep devotion to God and her Catholic faith. She was a good cook who loved to entertain, very involved in her community and church and was a longtime member of the CWL. She had a great sense of humour and told many wonderful, funny stories. Lillian was also a lifelong learner who enjoyed reading immensely, especially anything historical.
