On 28th October, 2013, the Author of Life called to Himself our dear Sr. Lilly Kurian. She was born in Uzhavoor, Kerela, India on 28th March, 1964, professed at Bellefonte, Shillong, India on 5th August 1986.

Lilly grew up in a family of 7 siblings with three brothers and three sisters. She hailed from a family rich in Christian and religious values and deeply rooted in faith. The solid and rich values that were inculcated within the family had its impact in the life of young Lilly. After her Pre-University Course she entered the aspirantate in 1982 and professed in 1986. Sr. Lilly spent her 27 years of religious life in the various communities of Guwahati and Shillong Provinces. Soon after her profession Sr. Lilly was sent to Auxilium, Provincial house for her one year intensive Juniorate followed by her three years of academic studies in St. Mary’s College, Shillong. In the year 2000 she was sent to Rome for two years of spirituality course at Madre Ersilia Canta. She worked in the states of Assam, Manipur and Meghalaya, as teacher, assistant of the boarders, pre-Aspirants and Headmistress. In 2005 she was appointed as animator of Bishramganj, Tripura where she rendered her services for less than a year since she was asked to be the Provincial Secretary. She served the province as secretary from 2006 to 2012. During this period Sr. Lilly was diagnosed with cancer. Since it was at the initial stage she was healed from this malady. After her term as secretary she was appointed as Vicar of the Province and animator of Saiden community during which she was diagnosed of bone cancer. She was then transferred to the provincial house for few months. Since her health was deteriorating day by day she was shifted to Bellefonte, the rest house. Surrounded by the sisters of the nearby communities she winged her flight to heaven. Sr. Lilly was a woman of prayer and work. She nurtured a great sense of belonging to the Institute. She had tender devotion to our Blessed Mother, in childlike simplicity she would pray the Holy Rosary devoutly and prepared herself well for the Marian feasts. She was grateful for any favour done to her. May the Lord, the author of life welcome her to His beatific vision.
