It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Lillian "Lu" Dorothy Roy, age 72, of Amherst.  Lillian passed away on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre while surrounded by loving family.

Born in Killams Mills, NB, she was a daughter of the late Rev. Medley and Doris (Wadden) Spence.

Lillian (Lu) enjoyed selling Avon, word search puzzles, adult coloring and listening to music.  What she loved the most was time spent with family and friends (and her little dog, Boo Boo).  Whether gathering at the shore playing board games into the wee hours of the morning, talking on the phone, or simply sitting down to a lovely meal.

Her faith in God, and the love of her family and friends brought her through many trials in her life.  Despite all of life's storms, by the grace of God, Lu retained a gentle, kind, and loving spirit.  It was felt by all who had the privilege of meeting her.

Lillian will be dearly missed by her daughter Doris Roy, Amherst, her dear grandson J.J. Dorrington, Amherst and her brother Jonathan Spence (Tammy Wheaton), Amherst, NS; as well as her special friends Shirley Farrell, Barb McAllister, Pat Howell, and Barb Landers.

She was predeceased by her husband Ulric Joseph Roy.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church St, Amherst, NS (902-667-8777) where visitation will be held on Saturday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 pm.  Lillian's funeral service will take place at the Jones Family Funeral Centre, Amherst, with Rev. Jonathan Cole officiating, on Sunday, October 11, 2020 at 2 pm.  Burial will take place at the Amherst Cemetery immediately following the funeral.  In keeping with COVID-19 restrictions, masks are required inside the funeral home.  Please call 902-667-8777 to pre-register if you will be attending the funeral.  Preregistration is not required for visitation.
