Obituary of Lily Florence Woodworth
Lilly Florence (White) Woodworth of Point Leamington was taken to her heavenly home on April 26, 2022 at age 100. She resided at the Twomey Centre in Botwood, since the passing of her husband in 2015.
Lily was born in Northwest Arm, NL on February 18, 1922. Due to circumstances, as a child she lived with her aunt in Botwood. She later worked as a maid in Point Leamington; and as a young adult, at a bakery in Botwood.

Lily was a very private person who loved the Lord, her family and her friends. She had a passion for baking; there were always sweets in the house. She collected cookbooks and loved quilting, knitting, sewing and reading. She also loved her flower garden and pet cat.
She was predeceased by her husband, Roland, and infant sons; parents, Meta (Mills) and Herbert White; sisters, Violet, Ruth, Irene, and Ruby; brothers, Bramwell, Baxter, Donald and Robert. She leaves to mourn her sons, Dennis (Primrose), Dale (Irene), and David (Bonnie); daughter Joan (Bruce) Loder; 13 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren and a circle of other relatives and friends.
