Lilith Ann Sieck

April 18, 1933December 17, 2017

Lilith Ann Sieck passed away Sunday, December 17, 2017 in Orlando, Florida at the age of 84. Lilith was born in Trenton, New Jersey in 1933. She is survived by three beloved daughters, Camilla Trippe, Tara Galliford and Amber Tracy. In addition, she is survived by nine grandchildren, Elizabeth Trippe, Margaret Trippe, Ann Trippe, Catherine Trippe, Samantha Moser, Ryan Galliford, Michele Roche, Nate Tracy and Austin Tracy. She was preceded in death by husband Rudolph Henry Sieck Jr. and grandson William Joseph West. Lilith was greatly looking forward to the birth of two great-grandchildren who are on their way. Lilith moved from her early childhood home of Staten Island, New York to St. Petersburg, Florida in 1937, where she graduated from St. Pete High School. Lilith received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from the University of Florida and her Master of Arts degree from the University of Central Florida. After graduating college, she moved to Orlando and began her career as a Special Education teacher, first at Forest Park School and later at Lake Silver Elementary until retirement. Lilith was a polio survivor. She refused to be defined or limited by adversity, living independently all her life, raising a family and traveling the world. Friends, family and colleagues enjoyed her intelligence, wit, humor and kindness, quickly recognizing that she was an amazing person who just happened to never stand up. A celebration of life will be held in the near future.

I'm deeply sad to learn of Lilith's passing. We met at (then) Winter Park Tech where we both were expanding horizons. Her story was so interesting that I asked her for permission to write a play based on events in her life. She allowed it and I taped our lengthy interview. Later she asked me for the cassette tapes so that her family could learn more about her. I do hope her children and grandchildren have been strengthened by this courageous woman.

Our deepest sympathies to the family. I taught with Lil at Lake Silver and Was so impressed with her enthusiasm for life. Each year I asked her to share how she lived with her handicap with my second graders. She was such an inspiration and always encouraged them to be the best they could. Lil could inspire anyone she met. I will miss her spirit.

Ms Lilith selflessly gave herself to the community and children around her. What a loss. May the God of all comfort be with the family.

Dear Tara, Cam & Amber,
Our deepest sympathies for the loss of your beloved Mother. As well, our sympathies to Dad, Mike & Bart for the loss of a loving Mother-in-law. To all her grandchildren, of who we were fortunate enough to have become, our hearts also go out to you. And sympathies to her greater social circle: to Betty, to Louise and to the countless students, friends, fellow theatre-goers & literacy volunteers. Grandma Lil was one of the most enlightened people I know, she judged no one and remained curious throughout her entire adventurous life. She introduced me to opera & foreign films, to teaching & to the Bach Festival. I am blessed to have had her in my life for these past thirty years and I am at peace that she is now onto the next part of her adventure. She will be terribly missed, nonetheless. Our Love, Michele, Ron & great-grandbaby
