In Loving Memory of

Evelyn "Lila" Stump


Obituary of Evelyn "Lila" Stump

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Evelyn (Lila) Stump announce her passing on May 7, 2020 at the age of 96. Loving mother of Violet (Bob) Allen, Linda (Paul) Miller-Scheib and Jacqueline Smith-Woolley. She was predeceased by her husbands Sydney Smith, Edward Gallagher & Bruce Stump, and her siblings Jacqueline MacKenzie, Eldon, Walter, Peter Murray.

Lila leaves many cherished memories for her grandchildren Terri Harmer, Kathy (Alex) Baranowski, Dean Miller, Julia (Shannon) Merritt, Braden, Adam & Faith Woolley, and her 9 great grandchildren, Bradley, Ryan, Sydney, Sarah, Leilani, Levi, Lukas, Justin & Nolan. "Granny" was always eager to join in the fun of tobogganing, shooting hoops in the driveway, hitting baseballs and cheering them on at their sporting events. They enjoyed her tea & toast, and swinging with her on that old rickety swing in her backyard while laughing & joking, listening to her stories, and watching the vegetables grow in her garden.

She will be lovingly remembered by her siblings Ida Brady, Doris Voss, Eliza Putney & George Murray as well as by several nieces, nephews, and her many friends at the Kingdom Hall.

Lila was a fun-loving lady with a strong faith in God. She especially enjoyed family get-togethers and loved to dance. She enjoyed cooking, and could bake a mean apple pie. We will miss her beautiful spirit and the way she embraced each day with enthusiasm. The family wish to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Scher and the Palliative Care Unit of the Douglas Memorial Hospital for their wonderful care & compassion.

Cremation has taken place with funeral arrangements entrusted to Essentials Funeral Services. Interment will take place at Lundy's Lane Cemetery. Due to Covid-19, a private family service will be held at a later date.

Service Information

There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
