Lila Marie Fann

January 17, 1937 - May 12, 2016


Went to be with her heavenly father and her family.
Lila was born to John William Fann and Cora Viola Hill Fann at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane Wash. When she came home from the hospital there was a bad snow storm and she ended up riding in a covered sleigh pulled by a team of Percheron horses to her new home, where she met her brothers Ray and Virl.

If you ever met Lila she would tell you about working in the hay and driving Ray’s jeep. Lila was injured at birth and was never able to walk, so her dad made her a box and lined it good so she could be in the field with him or Ray. She always was in a wheel chair. She was really loved and was really special.
Lila was predeceased by her mother, father, brothers Darley Daniel, Virl William, and Lyle Leroy Fann.
She is survived by her brother Ray (Hallie), sister in law Delores Fann. Many nieces and nephews, Helen Rasmussin, Elvena Rickelts, Donnelly Rapin, Richard
Chris, Raymond, Weley (Paula) Kenneth (Terry) Fann.

Lila was a study volunteer and greeter at her church and she loved all the people there. We want to give a special thank you to her care givers. They were excellent and we appreciate everything they did for Lila. Any donations can be made to Hospice House, a wonderful place and helpful. Memorial services will be at Cornwall Church, June 2nd, 2016 at 1:00pm. Bring your comments.

  1. My memories are of when we were growing up in Kittitas, Wa.
    Such a fun evening walking over to Uncle John’s and Aunt Cora’s and spending time
    with the family. Lila was Uncle John’s “Favorite” (sorry Ray). He cared for her when everyone was in School or working. Every time I hear the words “Mushroom Soup)
    I have a picture in my head of Lila eating her favorite, mushroom soup.

    Ray, you and Hallie have done such a good job of seeing Lila had the pleasures of life
    as well as her daily needs met. You will all meet again. Now, take care of yourselves.

    Thank You for letting me know of Lila’s passing.
