Lillian Howard, May She Rest in Peace

We are saddened to share the news that Elder Lillian Howard passed away this past week. Lillian was an environmental and social justice activist working with many community organizations across BC, including Spectrum. We deeply valued knowing and working with Lillian. She shared her knowledge, teachings and stories with love, kindness, and generosity of spirit. She was a gifted teacher and healer who gave us so much; being a part of planning for people we support as an Elder, contributing to our strategic planning and showing us how to work in a good way with Indigenous people. She was a blessing to all who knew her, and her passing is a great loss to our community. Lilian’s daughters have created a gofundme page to help with funeral expenses.
