Lillian Theresa ROEDEL
January 17, 1920 – January 5, 2021
Lillian Theresa Schott Daniel Roedel, 100, of Spokane, WA passed away peacefully Tuesday, January 5, 2021 surrounded by love (due to Covid-19 regulations, only two people were allowed in the hospice room with her, but the rest of her family was with her in spirit). Per her wishes, cremation has taken place and her family is planning a celebration of life to be held at a later date. Lillian was born January 17, 1920 at the family homestead in Stockett, MT to the late Joseph and Mary Schott. Lillian had seven siblings (all predeceased); Henry Schott, Martha Hilliker, Helen Johnson, Joseph Schott, Floren Schott, Leonard Schott, and Otto Schott. Lillian grew up down the road from the love of her life, Clarence Burr Daniel (1974), whom she married in 1944 while Clarence was serving in the Navy. They were blessed with six children: Joseph (Karman) Daniel, Orva (John) Jacobsen, Doyle (Gail) Daniel, Pamela Daniel Teller, Susan Daniel, and Nanette (William) Beyer. She married Herman Roedel (1994) in 1978 and has one stepson, Dwayne Roedel. Lillian will be laid to rest next to Clarence and requested her name be Lillian Theresa Schott Daniel on her tombstone. Lillian is loved and adored by her 11 grandchildren: Travis (Carrie) Daniel, Korbie (Ryan) Yeoman, Luke (Kristen McCloud) Teller, Danielle (Moses) Teller Rios, Jennifer (Matthew) Francis, Jessica Daniel, Sarah Willmore, Harley (Morgan Smith) Willmore, Tara Beyer, Shanna Beyer, and Landon Beyer. She also had 4 step-grandchildren Charla (Curtis) Graff, Dennis (Heidi) Roedel, Audra (Todd) Means, and Heather (James) Mitchell. She was thrilled to have 10 great grandchildren: Aden, Evan and Sophie Daniel, Maiya and Molly Yeoman, Angel and Isley Teller Rios, Jack and Joseph Francis, and Westley Willmore. Along with 7 great step-grandchildren: Jesica (Kolin) Dawsey, Chance (McKenzie) Graff, Ryan, Matt, and Taylor Roedel, Jackiy Roedel, Shelby (Brando) Gonzalez. Plus, her 4 great, great step-grandchildren Ace, Axl, and Arya Dawsey and Leo Sanchez. Lillian’s greatest joy was being with family and friends. She was active up until the last weeks of her life. She loved to dance, fish, travel, play bingo and card games, especially cribbage. Lillian had a competitive nature that delighted all of her family. She was a bit of a gambler, as she loved playing the slots, and, because she won most of the time, she gained the nickname Lucky Lil! She volunteered with the Senior Center in Great Falls for many years until she moved to Spokane to be closer to family. Lillian had a beautiful spirit and is loved and admired by so many and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Hospice of Spokane, PO Box 2215, Spokane, WA 99210. Hospice provided gentle, loving care that was greatly appreciated by her family. Or to the Spokane Lilac City for the Blind, 1212 N Howard Street, Spokane, WA 99201 who provided a machine that allowed her to read small print. Lillian loved receiving letters and this machine provided her the ability to enjoy reading them.
