When I served as Sydenham Ward alderman in the 1970s, Lily Inglis taught me a great deal about the human scale of buildings and cities, and the beauty of intimate details like a curved window or storm porch. Visiting her home was delightful; it made even me feel tall. When I'm back in Kingston,I shall see both Lily and Jim in the gracious buildings she designed and protected. Condolences to family and friends from Lois Miller and Iain Macdonald
She inspired me as an architect and activist

I met Ms. Inglis in 1978 while I was a new graduate architect at an Architectural Conservancy of Ontario conference. Her encouragement for work that myself and colleague Kim Storey presented there was most appreciated. Lily was a pioneer in her work as a heritage architect, and as a female practitioner. I later became President of the ACO, and know that I speak for others in saying she will be missed by heritage advocates across Ontario. She continues to inspire us all.
Sit down Don't rock the boat.

I smile when I say Lily. For seven graceous years I started my day off with GOOD MORNING LILY. Driving Miss Lily we would laugh and cry together.You have all seen me at Lily's side, she would say this is Barbara my RIGHT ARM. A part of Lily lives on in all of us. To clean her home and admire books upon books. To see her in her beloved Jim's house coat or one of his cotton shirts will always be my memory of her famous architectural design of uncoditional love. GOOD MORNING LILY XO
She will be missed

Such a loss for the Kingston community. Lily was a great architect, and was named The World's Shortest Architect by Zal Yanowski. She was full of life, intelligent, courageous and lovable. We will miss her greatly.
