Matilda (Tillie) Stockwell
Matilda (Tillie) Stockwell passed Sunday, March 8, 2015. She knew she was near her life’s end, and was at peace with its imminence. Her struggle with lung cancer and COPD was prolonged, but rarely painful. She was blessed to spend her final months in the constant company of family.
In accordance with her desires, she will be cremated and her remains scattered at sea — she was born on an island, and always lived on or near the water; the ocean brought to her the love of her life and kept him safe all his years in the Navy — so the ocean is where her remains will rest.
It was her express wish that there be no funeral service. For those who want to remember her in a special way, don’t send flowers – please donate to the Swedish Cancer Institute in her name. http://www.swedishtributegifts.org/tillie
