It is with extreme sorrow that we announce the passing of Lila Marie Greebe of Crossfield, Alberta on Sunday, May 24, 2020 at the age of 83. She leaves behind, the love of her life, her husband, Casey (Cornelis) Greebe of Crossfield, Alberta; sons, Ritchie (Cheryl) Barclay of Calgary, Brett (Shelley) Barclay of Crossfield, Wayne Barclay of Toronto, Brian (Donna) Greebe of Calgary, Gordon Greebe of Olds; 6 grandchildren; and 3 great grandchildren. Lila was born in Weippe, Idaho and lived in the Stettler / Tees area before moving to Carstairs and marrying Casey. She was a strong, self-sufficient woman and loved her family, her beautiful gardens and their many dogs. We are all richer for having shared our lives with Mom as these memories will never be forgotten. A Graveside Service will be held at the Carstairs Cemetery on Friday, July 17, 2020 at 1:00 PM. Please note a maximum of 100 people may attend and all social distancing procedures will be in place.
Our family is so very sorry to hear of Lilas passing. We have fond memories of her. She and Casey were dear friends to us. I remember when the kids were little and Kerry was in the field for my April birthday, Lila didnt want my special day to go unnoticed so she made a cake and she and Casey delivered it and we had a little party! My clothesline is due to Casey and Lila getting busy and showing up with cement and line to get me a clothesline up in my backyard. Our deepest condolences to the family!

She was one of the most generous, kind and caring people we have ever known, and we will miss her greatly. Sending you our deepest sympathy and much love, Sally, Randy, Memory and Arctica
