Lillian was humble by all the definition of the word and honored by more generations than she knew.
As a young woman, she was an amazing athlete who set records that earned her a place in the Women’s Hall of Fame for softball fastpitch. She was also well known for her rank in women’s golf and women’s bowling leagues as well.
Lillian was amazing, kind and caring. She will be missed by so many.
