BEER: Lillian E. E. (Mitchell) R.N. of Hensall

Posted By Haskett Funeral Homes On July 22, 2020 @ 3:24 PM In Exeter,Obituary | 81 Comments

BEER: Lillian E. E. (Mitchell) R.N. of Hensall

At University Hospital, London on Monday July 20, 2020, at the age of 92. Beloved wife of the late Capt. John R. Beer, RCAF (1975). Survived by sons David of Chatham (Dianne), John of Windsor, and Steven of London; grand-daughter Kristin Heard (Keith) and great-grand-daughters Katherine, Nicole, and Danielle of London, and grandson Aaron Beer of Edmonton; sister-in-law Lucille Beer of Hensall, several Saskatchewan cousins, and many nieces and nephews, to whom she was either ‘Aunt Lil’ or ‘Auntie Mitch’.Predeceased by brothers Frank Mitchell (1962), John ‘Jack’ Mitchell (1993), and Emerson Mitchell (2017); brother-in-law George Beer (1995) and sisters-in-law Elaine and Evelyn (1992) and Phyllis (2014).

Lillian was born February 19, 1928 in Morris Township, Huron County, to William Mitchell and Elizabeth Watson. Graduating from the Kitchener-Waterloo General Hospital Nursing Program in 1951, Lillian’s career really began in the mid-1940’s as a 16 year-old helper at a maternity hospital in Brussels, Ont. founded by her second-Dad and mentor Dr. Charles Myers and his wife Anne, an RN. As an Air Force wife (always ‘adapting’ because it was expected and because she was up-to-it), Lillian nursed in Winnipeg, Exeter, Ont., Tillsonburg, Camp Borden, Moose Jaw, Winnipeg again, Alliston, Ont., and finally Exeter again, from where she retired in 1991.

A Life Member and officer of both Hensall Legion and the Ladies’ Auxiliary, a Hensall United Church committee-member for 40 years, a nursing-home and Seniors’ Drop-In volunteer week-in/week-out for years after she retired, Mom was known as a team-player and a ‘doer’, the product of a generation that dedicated their time on Earth to public service. Mom was easy to love, easy to work with, honest and patient, uncomplaining and always in good spirits, even in difficult times, a ‘small-gesture-goes-a-long-way’ type of person. That’s why her first mentor’s youngest daughter, as well as a grand-niece and a great-grand-niece, bear her name. We grew-up in a happy, fun environment because our Mom and Dad loved each other, that was plain for all to see.  And we ate like kings, because Mom could cook anything, and her baking was legendary. Always friendly, Mom used to say, ‘Life’s too short – say hello when you meet someone on the street, whether you know them or not.’ She was living-proof that longevity might have something to do with not holding grudges, being utterly without guile or meanness, knowing when you’re lucky, and treating friendship like a gift. As her boys learned growing-up: when other people think your Mom is a nice person, they cut you a lot of slack.  Mom will be missed.

Visitation will be held at Haskett Funeral Home, 370 William Street, EXETER on Friday evening from 6 – 8 PM. Due to Provincial COVID-19 restrictions, each person must RSVP with a time to attend the visitation. Please visit www.haskettfh.com/calendar  or call 519-235-1220 to book a time. The Bereavement Authority of Ontario and Huron Perth Public Health have mandated that each person coming into the funeral home must wear a mask.

A private family funeral service will be held on Saturday, July 25th at 11 AM. Though the service is private, the family invites you to join with them from the comfort of your home. Stream the service live by visiting www.facebook.com/haskettfh . Interment Hensall Union Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations to London Health Sciences Foundation, Stratford General Hospital Foundation, or South Huron Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you David John and Steven. she was my neighbour for over a year but we bonded right away and she loved James Patterson books and found out I was too so she would get the latest book read it and leave it at my door when finished reading it. I will miss her leaving me books at my door. I have 3 books left that she left at my door because she was a fast reader and could not keep up to her. so every time I read James Patterson I will think of her.

To the entire Beer family:She was a gem! On Sunday mornings after church, we would meet my parents…Andre and Mariette Bilcke at Brenda s Restaurant. (former Cozy Corner) for breakfast. Just as we were leaving the Hensall United church ladies would pull up in their shared car ride assisting each other in and out of the restaurant. We were always so happy to see their smiling faces. Lillian made a mean pie too! For many years she made pies for our Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Petite,cute,always smiling, always smiling and I still don t know how she saw over the dashboard of her car but she always had a car full. She will be missed

Condolence from Inge Mowat on July 23rd, 2020 10:29 AM

Dear Family
Lillian was living proof that angels walk the earth..!! Not long after moving to Hensall I became aware that the name ‘Mitch Beer’ (spoken as though it was one word :) ) was part of the Hensall lexicon. It would be many years before I came to understand why. Please wear your pride for your mother as your mantle of honour of who she was and who you are today. She has truly earned her eternal rest. My prayers are with all of you as you prepare to say goodbye.
Inge Mowat

Condolence from Kate Ryan on August 2nd, 2020 7:47 AM

Lillian was a kind, compassionate and lovely Nurse.

As a young RNA working at South Huron Hospital, Lillian supported, guided and encouraged me to be a better person.

God Bless all of Lillian’s Family and friends.

Rest with peace.

Best regards,
Kate Ryan
