Lillian was a warm and generous lady who lived a remarkable life. She will be remembered by many of us who loved her and whose lives were made better by her presence. Her warm smile and the twinkle in her eyes lifted many a person's spirit. Her legacy will live on through her good works.
May God rest her soul and give comfort to her family.
