Lucille Kir (May 9, 2024)

Kir, Lucille

On May 9th, 2024, Lucille Anna Kir (née Trudell) passed from this world, leaving a profound hole in our family. Beloved wife of almost 66 years (July 2024) to George. Mother of Jacquie Lucas (Mike Arner) & Marty Kir (Mary); Grandma of Dustyn Lucas (Nasuna Stuart-Ulin), late Nicole Arner, Matt Arner, Calyn Kir & Jeron Kir.

Sister of late Gerry Trudell, late Raymond Trudell, Angela Gagnier, Claire Morrice & late Marie Ouellette. Sister-in-law to late John Kir and late Tessie Madjeric (Branko); Aunt to many nieces and nephews.

She lived life to the fullest and was always up for fun. “Fun should have been her middle name.” From a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse to the first principal of Queen of Peace School, former students still remember (and fear!) “Mrs. Kir.”

She & George curled, golfed, traveled extensively, and hosted and attended many gatherings, of which she was always the life of the party. Her distinct voice and laugh were recognizable from afar. She loved to garden, read, and birdwatch. She made many friendships over the years and treasured each and every one.

A special thank you to the staff at Erie Shores Hospice, Dr. Burgess, Dr. Tremblay, and to all the wonderful, caring nurses, PSWs, and volunteers for their outstanding care during the last 7 weeks.
