My condolences to the family. Lillian know to us McEwen's as LillyBelle was like our second mom. My memories are of our summers working in Muskoka and the lessons learned. Lilly Belle has always brought a smile to our face and was teaching us the language, and crafts. She was a wonderful lady, mother, aunt, grandmother and friend to many, and will be sadly missed.
Prayers and celebration to a strong woman who enjoyed a full life.

I am so sorry. I am so sorry we are not able to be there! I loved her so much. She was so artistic. So loving, wise, and funny. My kids loved that she only spoke Anishinaabemowin to them. We will miss her! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
