LILLIAN BEATRICE CAPES (NEE MCQUADE)
October 26, 1929 to December 15, 2012
Passed away peacefully in Toronto surrounded by family. Predeceased by her loving husband, Basil Capes, November 10, 1996. Lillian will be deeply missed by her three daughters, Eileen (Clifford Samuels), Linda (Edward Jamieson) and Tracey; as well as her five grandchildren, Alexander, Michael and Jaclyn Jamieson, Ginger and Maxwell Elliott.
  A loving mother, Lillian taught her daughters the value of being independent, the importance of pursuing your goals and the medicinal value of a glass of wine. In business she excelled becoming one of the first female executives as controller of a major insurance company. Lillian enjoyed life to the fullest with extensive travel, theatre and bridge, for which she won several awards. She enriched the lives of everyone who knew her.
  Friends will be received by the family at the Turner and Porter ''Yorke Chapel'' on 2357 Bloor St. W. on Wednesday, December 19, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. A celebration to honour Lillian's life will be held at a later date in Nanaimo, B. C. Online condolences may be made through www.turnerporter.ca.
