Born on Aug. 17, 1959 in Chernivtsy, Ukraine, Lilly migrated to Canada in 1991 and opened Best Way To Travel in 1999. “During these past 15 years, she grew her business and won the respect of her staff, clients and suppliers. She was a loyal and supportive President Circle member with Vacation.com and was always receptive and eager to embrace change,” said Linda Khanna, BDM – Eastern Canada for Vacation.com. “If you had to describe Lilly in one word, it would be passion. She expressed this daily with her love of travel, staff, family and her beloved grandson, Adrian. She lived life to the fullest, seizing every opportunity to share.  She was well respected and loved in this industry.” Funeral and visitation details can be found on Turner and Porter’s website http://turnerporter.permavita.com/site/LiliaSokhetskaia.html?s=40.
