<div itemprop="description">Lillian (Mom, Grandma, Auntie Lil) passed away after a brief battle with cancer on February 16th. Better bowler, best friend, and cherished wife of 55 years to Wayne Hogan. <br> <br>Devoted mom to Kim (David Hannon) and Karen (Steve Broad), and loving Grandma to Ryan, Kaitlyn and Samuel. Wonderful sister to Linda Cicciu, and sister-in-law to the late Glenn, Marlene, Donna, Neil, and Debbie. Pre-deceased by her parents Philip and Mary, and her brother Joseph. <br> <br>Irreplaceable “Auntie Lil” to Gino, Lea Anne, Shannon, Erin, Shawn, Kevin, Lauren, Alexa, Riley, Aidan, Adam, Liam, Grace, Jake and Willow – who will remember her as the SuperMario champ who rescued the Princess. She will also be missed by many cousins, extended family and countless friends - all of whom she regularly spent time with and cherished dearly. Lil will forever be anteed in at the poker table with Fr. Joe and Fr. Peter. <br> <br>A devoted woman of strong faith who always led by example, she was a pillar of the Montreal Catholic Diocese and especially within her community of Transfiguration of Our Lord Parish, where she served in many capacities, but most importantly as parish secretary for over 40 years. <br> <br>Lillian’s love, strength, and compassion made a lasting impact on anyone who was fortunate enough to meet her. Her entire life was a testament to her belief that two of the most important things are family and helping others. You never needed to ask because her support was always there – whether it be knitting caps for the cancer unit at the Montreal Children’s Hospital or slippers for the Father Dowd Home, driving her fellow ladies’ club members to appointments, attending numerous fundraising events and supporting many worthwhile charities, or dropping off her famous rice pudding or carrot cakes. <br> <br>For decades, Lillian was well-known for being the quiet Italian supporter of every Irish event in Montreal. She proudly stood beside Wayne when he was the 2002 Grand Marshall of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the 2016 Irishman of the Year – because behind every great man there is a greater woman making sure that he doesn’t mess it up. <br> <br>Our heartfelt thanks to the devoted staff at St. Mary’s Hospital including Dr Drummond, Dr Dalfen, Dr Théberge, Dr Munro, and the nurses in the ER and 5 Main, especially Chris, Nini, Jackie, and Karine. <br> <br>Visitations on Saturday, February 26 from 4 to 6 p.m. and Sunday, February 27 from 1 to 5 pm at Armstrong Funeral Home, 1640 Cote Vertu, St. Laurent. A Celebration of Lillian’s life will take place on Monday, February 28 at 10:30 am at Transfiguration of our Lord Church, 11775 Filion, Montreal. <br> <br>In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Lillian’s memory to St Mary’s Hospital Foundation (www.stmaryshospitalfoundation.ca).</div>
