With heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Lily May Peacock (nee Dobell) on Friday, January 26th 2024 at Hotel Dieu Shaver in her 100th year with family at her side. Reunited with her cherished spouse, Harold Peacock; mother to Robert (Joan) Kwiatkowski, Dennis Kwiatkowski and Martin (Bobby) Kwiatkowski; proud Gigi to Charlene, Darlene, Bobbie, Adam, Luke, Josh, Marty, Lisa and great-Gigi to Owen and many other grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Lily was predeceased by her son, Gary Kwiatkowski, first husband, Stanley Kwiatkowski, second husband Harold Peacock and siblings Harry, Dorothy, Eddie, Johnny and George.
Lily enjoyed baseball in Jordan, bowling with her girlfriends and stamping the bingo cards on a Friday night. She was an avid walker and credited her longevity to staying in shape. Mom was the queen of the yard sales in Jordan. Mom was a long-time volunteer with the March of Dimes doing the corn roast in NOTL and wrapping gifts at Christmas. Lily was a member of the Facer Street Baptist church where she was a member of the Joy Club and took part in many activities. Family was most important to Lily, with her newest great-grandchild Owen.
The family wish to express their gratitude to the wonderful, caring nurses and staff at the Hotel Dieu Shaver with a special thank to Dr. Arvinte. Thank you you to the staff at Tufford Manor where Lily lived for the past 5 years. In keeping with Lily’s wishes, funeral arrangements have been entrusted with the GEORGE DARTE FUNERAL HOME, 585 Carlton St., St. Catharines.
