Lillis Hancock By Jean M. Draney Sister Lillis Hancock McGilvary was born to Charles Edward and Celia May Keyes Hancock in Raymond, Alberta, Canada the second daughter and sixth child in a family of 12 children. Her father owned and operated a dairy farm and so there was always lots of work to be done. till is learned the value of hard work and to accept responsibility at a very young age. She had a certain number of cows that she was responsible for. She was up each morning before the sun to help milk and then drove the cows to the pasture. The farm also had various other crops, including sugar beets. Long hours were spent hoeing and thinning and watching for her mother to hang out a white dishcloth at the back door- the signal that lunch was ready. Lillis was blessed with a proud pioneer heritage. Her great-grandparents joined the Church in its early founding days. Her 3rd great-grandfather, Solomon Hancock was a close associate with the prophet Joseph Smith. These pioneer ancestors suffered the persecutions of the mobs and the privations of the trek across the plains. Her own parents and grandparents were pioneers to the southern farmlands of Alberta. Through this heritage, Lillis gained a deep love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. From her baptism at age eight in the icy waters of the town swimming pool, she has been an active member of the Church. She has served in many positions in the Primary, MIA and Sunday School. She has been an inspired teacher to many youth throughout her life. She served for many years as secretary of the Primary. She has been active in the music of the Church. She has been a member of ward, stake and Relief Society choirs, secretary to the choir and plays many musical instruments, including the piano and organ. Lillis was married for over 40 years to George Tennant McGilvary; and they raised a family of three sons and two daughters. George was not a member of the Church during the early years of their marriage; but Lillis never stopped her activity in the Church and taking her children to their meetings and teaching them correct principles. In 1950 George became a member of the Church and in 1951, the whole family was sealed for time and eternity in the Alberta temple. The blessing of the temple endowment has always been a joy and privilege to Lillis. She spends 2 or 3 days a week in either the Provo or Jordan River temples. This experience gives her peace and comfort in her life and makes her feel thankful that she can give this service. Lillis has many artistic abilities. She has always been a talented gardener. She makes delicious bread and her grandsons love grandma’s pickles. She does exquisite knitting and has made quilts for all her grandchildren. Afghans and knitted snake scarves are family favorites. I will conclude this tribute to my mother with some personal remarks as you requested (not more than a minute or two). I hope this is what you wanted me to write. There are, of course, many more things I could have written but I hope this will be alright. Written by Mom -1956 Another year has sped on its way. So this little note has come to say We're having another Honored Guest Day. The day we've chosen and want you to be there, Is a day that comes seldom - only on a leap year. Dress up in your finest, be looking your best, We'll call there to get you, our Dear Honored Guest. There’ll be feasting and dancing, entertainment galore - Then visiting and laughing we'll all eat some more. You'll see your old friends you've missed since last year. So come to the party, they all will be there. February 29th Recreation Hall 12:30 o'clock Lillis H McGilvary
