She is also survived by her sister Mary Ann Whipple (Denny), niece Carrie McCarthy, nephew Jason Whipple, cousins Kathy Steadman, Connie Ash and Denise Manosky and her neighbor and good friend Ann Bucheral.
Lillian will be greatly missed for her energetic spirit, sense of humor and above all her kindness and love. She lived her life deeply caring for those around her and was committed to her friends and family. If you needed something, she was there for you.
She attended Holy Trinity School and was a 1947 graduate of Academy High. She married her loving husband Herman, a WWII Marine and engineer, in 1948. A wonderful wife and mother, her most cherished role was being a grandmother and great grandmother. Lillian loved to travel, especially to visit her family and always prepared great meals for them during the Holidays. Her ham and pierogies were most loved.
Her favorite pastimes were crocheting, knitting, gardening, shopping, going out to eat, cooking, canning fruits and vegetables, and bird watching. She was always ready for the next adventure, party or event, and holiday to host. She will also be remembered for her sense of fashion, especially her love of cheetah print clothing.
She was devoted to her faith and a lifelong member of Holy Trinity Church where she was the Treasurer and one of the few remaining members of the Rosary Society. She volunteered and donated to many charities. Lillian was most involved at the Zabawa Polish festival throughout the years. It was there where she rolled up her sleeves to help make Golabki. She also loved all the Ethnic and Parish Festivals Erie had to offer.
Lillian was one of the best servers you could imagine. She worked at the Beachcomber, Priscillas Charcoal Pit, Damore’s, Holiday Inn South and the Peach Tree at Carlisle’s among others. She was the vivacious Red Head! She also worked the election polls at McKinley for many years.
As “Gramma Red” would always say in Polish, “idź z Bogiem” which means, go with God.
A special thank you to the Staff at LECOM Senior Center who cared for and loved their Lilly.
