Lillian spent her early years at the family Kuzmits Grocery on Calvert St and loved the Slavish heritage neighborhood with dancing and cooking special traditional meals with authentic pastries.  She enjoyed the company of many and loved to dance, bowl, cook, play games and occasional Casino time.  Time with grandchildren was special to her and loved to see them even when some were miles away.
