Sister to Ron O’Reilly (the late Helen). Predeceased by her parents Jessie and Meredith O’Reilly of Shelburne, brother Jack (Joan) and sister Phyllis (Carl).
Lenore (Graduate, U of T – Victoria College, 1950) will be remembered for the incredible life she lived both at home in Huntsville, and during her travels and living abroad, most notably in Ghana, West Africa, and Montserrat, West Indies. Her colourful legacy includes her many paintings and sketches, her political activism, her fondness for music and the creative arts, her finesse on the golf course, with a good bridge hand and in the garden, and her gift of storytelling. Appropriately, Lenore’s farewell gathering will take place within the walls of Trinity United Church, where she served as choir member, organist and on numerous committees throughout her lifetime.
