Lila was born June 26th, 1925 at Humboldt, Sask., growing up in the Humboldt - Lake Lenore area. She was the third eldest of seven children and last surviving. Lila has one sister, Viola; and five brothers: Arthur, Clifford, Kenneth, Roger and Jack. Her lineage can be traced to George Eastman, of Eastman Kodak fame and as far back as 1515 Downton Parish, England. In 1942, Lila moved to Weyburn and worked for her aunt Edna Cruden for fourteen years as a hairdresser. Lila, in her younger years, (approx. 1946) took a bout of Tuberculosis. She spent four years at Fort San, during her stay she managed to lose most of one lung. She also spent a short period of time in Saskatoon recuperating. One story she shared regarded her stay at Fort San, patients were issued toques, kept in their beds, and rolled out onto the veranda during the cold winter days. Lila married Philip Christopher Bayerle on November 6th, 1957 at St. Augustine Church in Humboldt. Raising four children, Don, Dave, Laureen and Janet was a full time job. She did manage to remain a 30 year member of the C.W.L. and as well the Legion Ladies Auxiliary Branch #47, Weyburn, Sask. Lila enjoyed reading, writing in her journal, gardening, watching soaps and spending time with her family, especially pizza and movie nights. Her grandchildren were her greatest joys. She could also be found sitting outside on warm summer nights with the ladies of her apartment building. She also enjoyed shopping and going for coffee with her best friend, Jessie Rainey. You knew she was about when her smurf-blue valiant was spotted down town. Lila will be dearly missed by all family and friends.
