McKenna, Lillian Louise, age 88, of Dartmouth, passed away at the Dartmouth General Hospital on October 7, 2021.

Born in Milton Nova Scotia, Lillian was the daughter of the late Everett and May(Brake)Hatt.

Lillian was the beloved wife of Lester McKenna for 38 years and the proud mother of Paul (Maria) of Vancouver, Dave (Kathleen) of Musquodoboit Harbour and Cyril (Maureen) of Toronto. She also leaves her five adored grandchildren, Erika and Jonathan of Vancouver, Michelle of Musquodoboit Harbour, and Aidan and Sean of Toronto, as well as her dear sister-in-law, Shirley Hatt, of Bridgewater, and several nieces, nephews, stepchildren, and their families.

Besides her parents, Lillian was predeceased by her brother Bruce, her sister Geraldine, and her first husband, Edgar Dauphinee. After raising her family in Dartmouth, Lillian came home with Lester to Milton to care for her mother for many years, before returning to live in Dartmouth.

Lillian served on the executive of the Milton Heritage Society and the board of the United Church of Liverpool. She was a member of the Woodlawn United Church in Dartmouth and took pride in serving the church community through her long-term membership with the united church women.

Lillian was a devoted mother and grandmother who sent cards and gifts to mark every achievement and milestone. She always made the effort to keep in touch with her family members outside of Nova Scotia, and enjoyed traveling to visit family, especially her grandchildren, despite her health challenges. Lillian was a warm and sociable lady and had many long-standing friendships. She was always elegantly dressed for every occasion, and even for no occasion. She enjoyed strawberries, Lester’s cooking, and a good lobster roll.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, October 22, 2021 at 11:00 am, followed by a reception, all from Chandlers Funeral Home, 91 Union Street, Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Reverend Carol Smith officiating. In accordance with current COVID-19 pandemic regulations, masks are required to be worn and proof of double vaccinations along with identification are mandatory for attendance.

Condolence from Jane Cushing on October 21st, 2021 8:28 pm

Thinking of you as you gather for Lillian’s funeral service on Friday and sending my sympathy to David, Cyril and Paul for the loss of your mother. Lillian and I talked regularly on the phone over the years, about the UCW at Woodlawn United church, relatives in Bridgewater, our love for the South Shore of Nova Scotia and about the Hedgehog chocolates my son Paul sends from Purdy’s in Vancouver for special occasions. Then Lillian told me her son Paul sends chocolate coated ginger sweets from Purdy’s, so now I like them as well.
Lillian will be missed by each of you.

Condolence from Susan Carty on October 22nd, 2021 3:40 pm

Though I only met Lillian a handful of times she was always so friendly and kind. It was clear she cherished her family and friends. She spoke adoringly of all her grandchildren. Condolences to all the family.

Condolence from Tim McDonald on October 29th, 2021 2:17 pm

So sorry to see that Lillian has passed away. She loved to take photos back in the days of film and she always brought them, for developing, to Memory Lane Photo, a shop where i worked in Liverpool. We’d hear stories about her family (her mom was still living then) and also stories about her children and grandchildren. You could certainly tell how much she loved her family. She was always a very nice lady and we looked forward to her visits to the shop. My sincere condolences to Lester and to all of Lillian’s family.

Condolence from Lester on October 31st, 2021 11:52 am

Appreciation for Condolences
