Lily was a unique wonderful woman. Like one of her creative and masterful recipes, Lily was made from some of life’s most quality ingredients:

Equal parts loving wife, dedicated mother and abuela
A generous amount of courage and passion
Add a dash of humor and laughter
Sprinkle some wit and a love for travel
Garnish with a pinch of Latin spice

Once combined you have a strong, beautiful woman with an unforgettable smile and zest for life. Paired best with a vibrant group of family and friends.

Liliana Hernandez, daughter of José and Elisa Terruzzi. Wife of Alejandro Hernandez and mother to three children, Veronica, Danielle and Sebastian Hernandez, and son-in-law Philip Nadalin. Adoring grandmother to Alejandra and Benjamin Nadalin.

Born in Argentina, studied to become a math teacher and then married the love of her life, Alex. In 1977, they moved to Canada to start a new life and family. Without a dime in the bank, she worked to support her husband in his studies, supplement his meager earnings and pay the bills, until the birth of her three children, to whom she loved and happily dedicated her time. In a new country, away from her family and childhood friends, despite language and cultural barriers, new friends were drawn to Lily’s radiant kindness and fun-loving nature. Lily, 40 years later was aptly and affectionately nicknamed “Honey” by her first granddaughter, Alejandra. Her two grandchildren, Alex and Ben, never failed to bring her joy, and had her smiling even through her toughest moments; we saw her last smile when she saw them one last time. After courageously battling cancer for a year and a half, Lily passed peacefully on Friday November 29th surrounded by family.

A big thank you to all the medical staff who took excellent care of Lily in the US and Canada. Donations can be made in lieu of flowers to the following charities:

Canadian Cancer Society, Foundation of Guelph General Hospital, and Roswell Park Alliance Foundation

The laugh: fairly loud, on the edge of a cackle, but full of energy. It is what I choose to remember about Lily. As well as acknowledging the self-sacrifice made for family.
Blessings to all,
Quentin and Jean Martin
