I had the pleasure to know this sweet lady for almost 19 years. She had a heart of gold and truly holds a special place in my heart. She was such an amazing lady and will never be forgotten. She brought such joy with her smile and she made me feel like family when I was around. My condolences go out to the entire Eason family. I love you guys and y'all are in my prayers.

I was in her first class, there were 4 of us. I remember we would stand in her driveway for morning pledge of allegiance using the flag at Queens. My heart goes out to Sandra and the rest of the family. She was a great lady!

Aunt Lillian was truly a rare soul in our world. I only visited her a few times in my life as a child, but even then I knew she was quite different from other adults I had met and even closer relatives. A heart as loving, generous and giving as Aunt Lillian's you do not forget and that is why I remember her today some 50 years later.

Take care,
Antone

One of my very favorite people on the planet. She touched and influenced so many young lives in a positive way, mine included. I am saddened to the core but know she’s at peace. The Children's University is her legacy and I would never be able thank her enough for a giant happy part of my childhood, my children’s childhoods and my grandchildren’s childhoods. If you knew her, you loved her dearly. She will be missed. Susan, Sandra and Stephen, thank you for sharing your mom with us.

Our sincerest condolences. We were very saddened to hear of Mrs. Eason's passing. What a legacy she leaves behind. Our lives were intertwined for near 37 years it seems. Mrs. Eason was a true treasure, Godly woman and will truly be missed. She was always so kind to our family and others. I am sure her and Vicky are having sweet conversations on the streets of gold. Love, hugs and misses, always!

I don’t think there is a mother in Pasadena that didn’t take their children to The Children’s University at lease for a time. Mrs. Eason was always there with a smile to greet you. A beautiful soul and a wonderful spirit was she. Susan, so very sorry for this huge loss of your sweet Mama. May she Rest In Peace and I know God will see you through this sad time.
Much love 💕 to you.

Your mom was so special. We went out to eat with her & a group on one Sunday after church at Peppers. When the check came Al grabbed it & Lillian said, “give that to me, I’m the oldest & want to pay it!” After a brief discussion, it was determined Al was older by 2 yrs. so he got to pay it.

I know your hearts are breaking now. Remember she’s in the loving arms of Jesus & no longer in pain. Amen!
