Lilan was known to have the biggest heart. She surrounded herself with all her loved ones. She took an active role in each of her grandchildren and great grandsons' lives and cherished them greatly. She was an avid bowler until the age of 70. She enjoyed sitting outside on her porch and listening to the birds while enjoying the weather.
