She was the beloved grandmother of four grandchildren, Ryan, Morgan, Ashley, and Nathan.
Lillian was born and raised in Middleton and Peabody. She graduated from Peabody High School in 1960 and remained very active in the community until recently.
She was proud of her 40-year career in the country club and restaurant industries, including decades of loyal service at the Salem Country Club, King’s Grant, and the Wardhurst. She maintained close friendships with many coworkers throughout her career and after her retirement.

She was actively involved in their lives and thoroughly enjoyed family visits, travel, and hearing of various accomplishments or adventures. She genuinely cared deeply about her loved ones and was fortunate to have some of them holding her hand as she peacefully passed from this world.
