It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear sister in Christ Gillian Lyles. Gillian died yesterday at Lions Gate Hospital with her husband Ray, a close personal friend and Patrick by her side.
Gillian was a long time member of St. John's as were her parents. She had a strong faith and was dedicated to helping the community of St. John's and the broader community. She was trained and worked as a Care Aid Support Worker in her professional life. This dedication to care for others was very much a part of Gillian's ministry work at St. John's as well. She was a Sunday School Teacher and was always very willing to help others. For many years Gillian put on a Sunday service at Evergreen House and was always joyfully recruiting others to join her. She was also famous for her wonderfully glorious hats.
Gillian will be greatly missed. A memorial service at St. John's will be held on Saturday, November 12 at 1:00pm.
