She was a homemaker as well as a cafeteria worker at Miller Junior High School. Lillian enjoyed playing bingo and card games with her friends at the Legion. Lillian also loved going to the casino and would play the poker machines and was terribly lucky! She was an excellent cook and avid baker and would always have cookies and pies in the house. Lillian always looked forward to family reunions and although ill, she made it to the last one in September. She dearly loved her family. During her last days, she said that “Dad was in the house” and we are now comforted to know that Dad was there to take her to heaven with him.
