Even as a little girl, Lillian was a caregiver and a nurse at heart. Her father in particular took great pride in her pursuit of a nursing career. In her childhood she helped care for siblings and worked the family farm. Exposure to TB prevented her from becoming an RN but it did not her stop her from becoming a nurse. She achieved her RNA status and found her calling taking care of the elderly with compassion and dignity.
On a beautiful cool and sunny fall day she went home to be with the Lord. Her children Bruce and Linda both were there on October 14th surrounding their mother with love. And in her last moments her hand was held as she listened to First Corinthians.
At 93 Lillian had touched many lives. She overcame several illnesses and hardship but also experienced great love and joy of family and friends. She was sweet and dedicated in her faith in the Brethren. She loved the Lord.
