Lillian is one of the most generous woman I have ever met. She always put others before herself. She took great care of her two brothers Red and Bill. A beautiful woman inside and out. She will be greatly missed by many. My prayers are for strength to the family. Rest in Pease and thank you for all you have done for others. Ronni Nye-Keller
