Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

We are proud to provide this service allowing friends and family to donate to any registered charity throughout North America. You will receive an official tax receipt immediately via email and your thoughtful gesture will remain on this memorial website in perpetuity.
The time surrounding a death can often bring unexpected final expenses for the family far beyond the funeral itself. We are pleased to offer the ability for friends and relatives to financially support the family during their time of loss as an alternative to flowers and other sympathy gestures.

Julia “Lili” PAUL
December 11, 1927 – June 16, 2017
It is with much love and great sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Lili Paul on Friday, June 16, 2017 in her 90th year. Lili, the only child of Anna and Anthony Katamy, was born in Prince Albert, December 11, 1927. Mom was a dynamic person with an engaging personality, known for her many acts of kindness. Mom had a flair for style and a zest for life. Always the quintessential hostess, she was an accomplished cook. She was a great listener and we marvelled at her amazing memory. Her stories of life and travels with Dad are cherished memories. Mom was ahead of her time in so many ways, a forward thinker, passionate about family, travel, books, literature, art, and music, in particular jazz. Lili was a career woman. Her career started as a secretary for a local law firm. She continued on to work for, and retire from, the Federal Government. During that time, she also opened up her own business which reflected her unique style. Her involvements in community service included the Canadian Cancer Society, The Little Gallery, IODE, Red Cross, Jazz Society, Mendel Gallery, and the Music Festival. Mom was young at heart and had an extraordinary capacity for unconditional love. What mattered most to Mom was family, being Dad’s devoted wife, the proud mother of her children, the best mother-in-law, grandmother and great grandmother. She has left a legacy to be admired and we were so fortunate to have her in our lives. Mom was preceded in death by her beloved husband, George, her parents, Anna and Anthony Katamy, her parents-in-law, Rose and Mike Paul. She is survived by her five children, Cheryl (Tom) Hislop, Kerry (Inez) Paul, Candice (George) Spearman, George (Doris) Paul, and Robin (Sharon) Paul, her eleven wonderful grandchildren and seven adorable great grandchildren, and extended family Mary Hall, Anne Newberry, Nick Katamay, Josef and Krista Tesar, and their children. Our family would like to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Gordon Surkan, and Pat Chuey and staff at Good Shepherd Villas for their patience, empathy, care and compassion. Mom’s wishes for a PRIVATE FAMILY SERVICE are being honoured. The family invites friends to gather at Amy’s on Second Restaurant on Saturday, July 8, 2017, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm to share memories and celebrate her life. Those wishing to remember Lili by way of contribution may do so to a charity of their choice. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.grays.ca. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Gray's Funeral Chapel, (306-922-4729).
“Our mother’s love is the treasury of our childhood; the star that guides our future; the gift of life itself.”
As you always said, Mom, "love you always and forever”.
