May 7, 1917 - September 13, 2011
Wanda Boyd (Price) Illman died peacefully Tuesday Sept 13th at the age of 94. Born in Campbellton NB, Wanda completed Normal School and taught briefly until leaving for Ottawa. She married William (Bill) Illman on Sept 22, 1945. Wanda possessed a delicate sense of beauty and an artistic flair. She was a determined pioneer advocate for smoke free public places in Ottawa, remaining steadfast in that fight in the face of resistance, sometimes much to the embarrassment of her family. Left to celebrate her life are children Beth (Bob) Carson, Nancy Illman and Meg Illman-White, son in law David Illman-White, grandchildren Cynthia, Rachel, Rebekah, Miriam and Sean and great grandchildren Lucie, Madelaine, Edwina, Lawrence and Amy, sister Betty Barron, and brothers Jim (Gene) and Howard (Lois), devoted nephew Kerry (Mira) Price and many other beloved nieces and nephews. Wanda was predeceased by her husband Bill Illman and best friend Justine Lips. A celebration of her life will be held at Rideau Park United Church on Friday September 16 th at 2 p.m. with Rev. Peter Lougheed officiating. Donations in her memory may be made to Friends of the Farm or The Ottawa Mission.
