Mrs. Lila Bahler (nee Longacre) of Sylvan Lake passed away suddenly on Friday, October 24, 2014 at the age of 94 years. Lila and her husband, Sam, farmed east of Sylvan Lake from 1948 until 1991 when they moved into Sylvan Lake. She was an avid gardener and an awesome cook, and spent many hours cooking for farm crews and running lunches to the fields. Since 2003 Lila has lived at the Sylvan Lake Lodge where she loved to play cards, do her jigsaw puzzles and entertain others on the piano. She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her one son Sam, and daughter-in-law Sandy of Red Deer, grandson, Bradley Bahler (Jennifer) of Sylvan Lake, granddaughter, Daina Sparling (Darryl) of Edmonton and great grandchildren Isaac, Abbi, Nate, Ben (Bahler), Jacob and Audrey (Sparling); three sisters, Lily Longacre , Helen Drader of Red Deer and Ethyl (Roy) Foster of Wetaskiwin; and numerous nieces and nephews. Lila was predeceased by her husband Sam in 1996; brothers Fred, Leonard, Lewis, Jim, Norman and sisters Blanche, Flora and Eldora. Relatives and friends are invited to meet with the family to pay their respects at a Memorial Tea to be held from 1 pm – 3 pm, Nov 3, at the Lions Hall, Sylvan Lake, Alberta if desired.
