She also has eight cherished grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.



Lillian dedicated her life to making a safe and loving home. She was an exceptionally kind soul who enjoyed simple pleasures and joyful gatherings of extended family and friends. She was the last of her wonderful, beloved generation. The family would like to thank Berkshire Place for their excellent care during the time of Lillian’s residency.
