Lila Vivian Labbe (Rempel)

August 25, 1932 - October 7, 2021

Tribute

The language of motherhood knows no boundaries. There is nothing that mom would not have done for her children and family – and that was our mother. Her compassion for others and her commitment to her faith, her self-sacrifice will be her legacy. We are grateful for her influence, her love and wisdom.

She was ushered into heaven from Menno Place peacefully on Oct. 7th, 2021. She will join Raymond, her loving husband who passed in 2018. She will be remembered by her children, Wayne and his wife Marilyn, Denise and her husband Paul and Marcel. In addition, her grandchildren, Shawn and his wife Darlene, Kyle and his wife Erin, Adrian, Rochelle and Calvin. Her great children, Natalia, Braden, and Avery held a particularly special place in her heart. She was predeceased by Agnes, Lawrence and Carol,her siblings.

She was born in Consul, Saskatchewan on a rural farm. After her marriage to Raymond, she resided in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Quebec, before returning to her family in BC. Mom worked most of her life in the accounting and administrative fields. She particularly enjoyed her time working at Abbotsford Pentecostal Assembly.

Mom’s love for dad was unconditional and provided care for him during his long battle with dementia and lung cancer, which allowed for him to remain at home before his passing.

An overwhelming characteristic of mom was her generosity. This was demonstrated in many ways to family, friends and those in need. We would often observe mom buying groceries for families experiencing difficulties. She also found meaning spending time and praying for those ill or dying.

Like many other working mothers, it was her desire to provide time and attention to her children and family. While she often felt she came up short, we her children were thankful for the time we received.

One of her favorite hobbies was painting where she was prolific. Many of her family and friends have a piece of her artistry. Once mom and dad retired, they both spent more time working on their creative pursuits, which included spending time at trade shows and flea markets selling their crafts.

Mom, you had unbelievable strength of character and faith. Thank you for modeling that to your children. The memories are plenty and we will miss the woman you were before you were taken away from us by the dementia. We take comfort in knowing you will be joining dad in heaven.
