Sadly, she was predeceased by first husband Steve Berezan (May 1962), her second husband David Keller (May 2006), daughter Rose and son-in-law Walter, son Milton, her brothers; Eugene, Ralph, Emile, Wilfred, Louis and by her sister Lillian.
Lucille is survived by and will be greatly missed by her sons; Ralph (Lorraine), Ron (Rosemary), Leo (Kathy), Bob (Hazel), 16 grandchildren, and 21 great- grandchildren, her sister Adeline (Serge) and by her daughter-in-law Carolyn (Milton).
Lucille was born in Crystal Springs, Saskatchewan, where she attended school. In 1937, at the age of 19 she married Steve Berezan. In the early years they traveled extensively throughout Canada, finally settling in Quesnel, B.C.
In 1966, Lucille met David Keller and moved to Oliver, B.C. Together they worked the Keller Orchard until 1974, whereupon they retired to a life of fishing, gardening, traveling and enjoying time with their family.
Lucille’s positive outlook, love of life and gentle nature touched the lives of all who knew her.
Our family wish to thank the dedicated and caring staff at Langley Memorial Hospital.
