Born in Wolseley, Saskatchewan on November 25th, 1928, Li spent the early years of her life moving from Canada to Germany and then to Josephburg, Alberta. A graduate from the U of A Education Program, Li was a lifelong learner, master teacher and musician. On July 10th, 1952, Li married the love of her life Dan, and moved to Vegreville to raise a family. Li lived each day to the fullest. She will be remembered by all for her warmth, kindness, gentle hugs and love of family and friends; her handwritten notes; her service to her church family as a layperson, organist, choral director, UCW, Sunday school, CGIT, World Day of Prayer; her passion for literature, art, photography and music; her volunteerism and dedicated service to multiple organizations and people; gatherings at Danli Farm and Danli Acres; her pride in being Canadian; her ‘camera’, ‘iPad’ and ‘guestbook(s)’; her steadfast, unwavering faith in God and her belief in the goodness in all mankind. Li’s lasting words are, “Life is beautiful!” A funeral service will be held on Thursday, December 22nd at 11:00 a.m. in the Vegreville Social Center 4802 47a St, Vegreville, AB with Reverend Anne McGrath officiating.
