DUFOUR, Lila Marie – Whitney Pier

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dear Lila Dufour, loving and wonderful mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. Lila passed on February 18, 2019, at home in the arms of her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Born on November 1, 1937, in Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Mildred and George LeRoy. Mom will be forever missed by her husband of 62 years, ‘Buddy’ Douglas; children, Patricia (Don), Carol, Doug (Trish), Debra; grandchildren, Meaghan, Michael, Steven, Jennifer; great grandson, Macklyn George; loving sister, Joan (Harvey) and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides her parents, Lila was predeceased by son, George; sister, Anita; two special uncles, Alvin and Leo Deveaux; grandparents, Jeffery and Catherine Deveaux, Rosalie and Louis LeRoy and step-grandfather William Fewer. Mom leaves us with fond memories of her playing darts, bingo and 50 years of Sunday night cards. Her greatest pride and joy have always been her children, she would say “I love you more than life itself.” Thank you to the Palliative Care team for your help and kindness. A very special thank you to the VON (Helen and Wendy), and the many more nurses who provided exceptional care to our Mom. As per Lila’s request, cremation has taken place under the direction of the Pier Community Funeral Home. Online condolences may be forwarded to the family at www.pierfuneralhome.com.
