Lily Carter

LILY MAY CARTER - 1920 TO 2017

This is from the tribute to their mother Lily given by John and Lyn Carter at the Funeral Service.

Lily will be remembered primarily for her long and dedicated service to the Scouting Movement; in Ealing and Hanwell, to the County Camp Site at Chalfont Heights, and to Baden-Powell House in Kensington.  She was awarded the rare distinction of a 70 Years Service Award.

For Lily, her family was the highest priority, she was the glue holding the family together.  She spent her life helping other people, putting other people first at all times.

She lived her life true to the principles of the Scout Law and Promise.  She gave love and kindness to other people in abundance.  Twice each year she would travel to France to visit the family.  There are four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.  She cared for her friends and gave much help to others.
