Lillian spent her life caring for others. She and her husband provided foster care during their years living in Massachusetts and taught by example that being a parent didn’t always come from giving birth. Lillian cared for her mother, her aunt and then her husband as he battled with Alzheimer’s. Lillian was always the shoulder to lean on, the hand to hold, and words of wisdom to anyone who came to her. She was active in the Catholic Church and led many to Christ as a catechism teacher. Lillian’s greatest super-power was her prayer life. Lillian didn’t just say she would pray for you, she dropped everything at that very moment to pray for you. And she didn’t pray just once, she prayed every day until she was told otherwise. Her life was a testimony to her faith and she lived it every single day.
Lillian will always be remembered as a loving sister, mother, aunt, grandmother and friend. Her family would like to extend a special thank you to her sister and our Auntie Susan for everything she has done for our Mom particularly during her illness.
Just before her passing, Lillian requested that we ask everyone to please get their colonoscopy screening as directed by their physician. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the National Colon Cancer Awareness Foundation. Our Mom wanted a “Going Away Party” and we will be holding the party on Saturday, November 30th in Holden Beach, NC. Please contact Kimberly or Stacey for details if you would like to attend.
