FROM 'YARD WORK' --------------- TO 'YARD SALES'
Lillian Lanko believes in silliness for its own sake, hence her a.k.a. moniker Silly Lilly. Her unique approach to life was cultivated during her world
travels by car through Europe, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iran, Iraq,
Pakistan and India. This extensive trip took 6 months and covered all major cities in 33 countries. She realized, that despite the differences in cultures,
everyone loves to laugh. Inspired by reminiscing about the ‘good old days’
with her sister in Australia, -- Willy-Nilly was born -- here, to impart a
tongue-in-cheek humour that will leave you in ‘stitches.’
It's -- WILLY-NILLY JUST FOR LAUGHS
Lillian was born in Edmonton Alberta, lived in
Winnipeg, then as a youngster, moved with her parents and sister out West to Vancouver B.C.
Her varied working career spanned over four
decades in the field of Communications, always with the same employer, that kept changing it's titled Corporate name from C.N. Telegrams to
C.N.C.P. Telecommunications, to Unitel, then to AT&T Canada, and finally to it's current name,
Allstream. She finished her last 5 years working as an in-house Security Dispatch Operator at ST. Paul's Hospital, downtown
Vancouver B.C . Retiring in the Millennium year 2000, Lillian lives in her
family home with her Siamese cat Shiloh, that she adopted from the S.P.C.A. in 2012... Lillian has also engaged in many creative hobbies over the years;
loves travelling, amateur photography, gardening, and animals. She also
frequents yard sales looking for treasures.. Writing the Willy-Nilly book,
is Lillian's most recent accomplished venture !
