April 16, 2006 - May 13, 2020
Lilly McDonald, age 14, of Morgantown, WV (Cheat Lake Community) slipped away peacefully and made her journey to Rainbow Bridge at 11:42 a.m. on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 with family at her side.
Lilly was born April 16, 2006 and adopted by the McDonald family, of Cheat Lake. Her father was a Golden Retriever and her mother was a Collie which made Lilly a unique dog with admirable qualities.
Lilly was strong with a gentle soul; she was kind and playful. Her loyalty and devotion to her whole family was demonstrated every single day. Lilly spent her time looking after everyone with whom she came into contact. She brought smiles of joy and wiped away any tears that fell.
Some of Lilly’s special interests included going camping and spending time with family. When someone wanted to be alone, she would not allow it. When she was younger, she loved to rough house and run. When she wasn’t enjoying time with the family, you could find her herding the cows. In her senior years, she became everyone’s shadow and made sure to keep tabs on everyone to ensure all was well.
Lilly was a devoted mother and parental figure to many of her brothers and sisters. Among those left behind to cherish her memory include her human family: Hannah, Lisa, Max and DJ; and her fur siblings: Luna, Molly, Karma and Beckley – by all of whom Lilly will be deeply missed.
In accordance with family wishes, cremation services have been provided by Luke Massey Pet Cremation in Arthurdale and we are honored to care for Lilly and the McDonald family.
