She was very active in St. Joseph’s Parish until 1984, when they moved to Medicine Hat and became members of Holy Family Parish.

At home they enjoyed dancing the polka, playing pool and shuffleboard and during the summer months they enjoyed their swimming pool. Tillie’s greatest joy was her family and she took great pleasure in her grandchildren and her great- grandchildren. Tillie will be remembered for her independence, her energy, her determination, her work ethic, and her love of the outdoors as she was always planting flowers, cutting grass, trimming trees and taking care of her pool in the summer and shoveling snow in the winter. Her life was founded in the Catholic faith.
