KROES (Braidwood), Ellen Frances

Oct.19, 1937 ~ July 3, 2008

As Kelly held her hand, a special mom felt it was time to go, even if we weren’t ready. She lived for many years with MS and recently with cancer. Mom lived at Willow Manor after dad passed away, with determination and the help of Fraser Health Care, whom we are so grateful to. Mom has now gone to join dad (Richard/Dick), who left us in June 2005. She is survived by her daughter Kelly and adored son-in-law Art Lilley, son Gary (Marlene), daughters Cindy and Wendy. She leaves behind her grandchildren Chrystalyn, Arthur, Jessica, Alexia, Kari, Zack, Raven, Mathew and Amber and 1 great-grandson Lance. Also survived by her brother John (Nadine) Braidwood and many other relatives and friends. Thank you to Dr. Daniel Wong for his longtime care and the great staff on 2 West at RM Hosp. for looking after Mom so wonderfully the last few weeks. No service by request.
