Lily Aldcroft

Born in Leeds, England on September 17, 1912. Passed away August 6, 2016 in Cobble Hill. Predeceased by her husband Hubert Aldcroft in 1998. Lovingly remembered by her children David (Diana) and Meryl (Rick); grandchildren Sean (Jen) and Stephen (Shanel), great-grandson Gabriel as well as many other family members and friends. Lily and Hubert were both Christians and attended Union Hall Evangelical Church in Hulme Manchester. Situated close to Manchester University many students from around the world attended the church and were all invited home for a cooked meal. In some cases temporary accommodation was given to students and their families. As a result of these kindnesses Lily had a number of children named after her in Nigeria, Singapore and Hong Kong. Emigrating to Canada in 2001 when she was 89 she attended Cobble Hill Christian Church where she made many more friends. The family extends their deep thanks to Rae, Debbie and Pam, for their wonderful care at the Gatehouse and would also like to thank Dr. Klopper for his kindness.
