 Lillian May (McFarlane) Day

May 30, 1911 - July 29, 2014

Our beloved Mother, “Grandma Day”, Aunt and Friend, Lillian, passed at age 103, from her earthly home in Arnold, CA, on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, to live in her eternal home with Jesus.

Lillian was Canadian, born in Vancouver, B.C., to Walter Agnew and Ethel McFarlane, and raised in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island.  At 16, she came to San Francisco, became a U.S. citizen and settled in Burlingame with her Mother, Ethel and Stepfather, Albert Hall.  She graduated from Burlingame High School, 1931, then met and soon married David Hugh (Dye) Day.  The couple settled in San Carlos, where both lived for 47 years and raised their family of four children -- William “Bill” (Joanne) and D. Bruce (Kathryn) Day, Susan Day (James) Hosford and Carole Day (John) Fletcher.

Young Lillian was a secretary at Hammond Aircraft and Dalmo Victor, a homemaker for 14 years, then returned to work 27 more years at the former San Mateo Medical Clinic, Record Room (Baldwin Avenue).  She loved her family, enjoyed genealogy, traveling the U.S., Europe, Hawaii, cruising the Caribbean and visiting Yosemite.  She lived 15 years in San Andreas, CA, after her husband passed, then moved to Arnold to live with family until her death.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Aunt Elizabeth Wenborn, husband of 57 years, Dave, Cousins Jack and Robert Wenborn, sons--Bill and Bruce--two infants, Grandson John Fletcher and Great Grandson, John Catterall.

Lillian is survived by her two Daughters, 13 Grandchildren 17 Great Grandchildren and three Great Great Grandchildren.  She was an inspiration to all, with her sweet, loving spirit and will be greatly missed.

Angels Memorial Chapel, Angels Camp, CA, handled arrangements.  The family asks that donations in Lillian’s honor be made to Hospice of the Sierras, 20100 Cedar Road North, Sonora, CA 95370.  www.sonoramedicalcenter.org A Celebration of Life will be held at the Fletcher home, Arnold, October 12, 2014, with inurnment at Alta Mesa Memorial Cemetery, Palo Alto, CA.
