Passed away peacefully at Freeport Hospital on Thursday, December 15, 2022, to be with her Lord and Saviour at the age of 91. Loving mother of Dianne Friesen, Randy (Ruth) Dyck and Jamie VanDyck. Proud grandmother of Dana (Joel) Crawford, Jared Friesen, Jeremy (Lisa) Dueck and Karalyn (Aaron) Smits and great grandmother of Cadence, Kirsten, Ethan, Tristan, Carter and Kinsley, dear sister of Rita Willms and sister-in-law of Nancy Fehderau, and brother-in-law Neil Fast. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 68 years, Peter Dyck in 2019, her son at birth, son-in-law Albert Friesen, parents Nicholas and Louise Fehderau, and her siblings Harold Fehderau and Elenore Neufeld-Fast, and brother-in-law Jake Willms.
Lillian worked at various jobs including the bank and Schneider’s as a teenager before getting married and helping with accounting at her husband’s company P.G.Dick Electric Limited for 25 years. Her musical contribution on the piano and organ at Kitchener Mennonite Brethren Church was appreciated by many – initially accompanying the church choir in 1947 and then her services on the piano and organ at church services, weddings, and funerals for over 50 years after. Throughout her life, Lillian cherished good friendships and nurtured them.
The family would like to thank Dr. Hahn, the wonderful staff and nurses of LHIN, and all the care workers, nurses and doctors at Grand River and Freeport Hospital. They all made Mom’s life more comfortable to the end.
