April 11, 1922 – August 19, 2022
Aileen Crosetti, long-time resident of Point Roberts, passed away August 19, 2022. Aileen was born April 11, 1922 in Vancouver, B.C. to James and Gertrude Wilson. She met her future husband, Lawrence (Larry) Crosetti in Seattle and they were married July 26,1947 in Vancouver.
They made their home first in Hungry Horse, Montana, where their three children were born. They later lived in Bremerton, Washington, Niagara Falls, New York, and Silverdale, Washington. Aileen and Larry spent several years building their retirement home on Claire Lane at Point Roberts and moved there in 1987.
They were passionate about the preservation of Lily Point and devoted many hours and resources to protect the area from over-development. Aileen was a force to be reckoned with. She was fiercely independent and lived life on her terms.
She is survived by her three children, Diane Walworth (Bainbridge Island, Washington), Jim Crosetti, (Louisville, Kentucky), and Bonnie Salter (Olympia, Washington); seven grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry, in 2013.
There will be a memorial service Saturday, September 3, at 2:30 p.m. at Delta Funeral Home, 5329 Ladner Trunk Road, Delta, B.C. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a local Humane Society. Aileen loved dogs and always had one at her side.
