Lillian resided on Diamond Lake in Cassopolis, MI for 41 years and retired from the Cassopolis School District as a secretary at the Vandalia School. She was the past President of the Hungarian Women’s Democratic Club, Kiwanis Auxiliary and the Covilla Auxiliary. She was very proud of her Hungarian heritage and spoke Hungarian fluently as her first language. She danced at the Hungarian “Harvest Dances” at the Cherry Hall which was the social hall of the former Hungarian Presbyterian Church on West Washington Street in South Bend. She enjoyed meeting and sharing memories with her friends from her high school graduating class and was always the happiest when surrounded by her family and loved ones.

I’d like the memory of me

To be a happy one.

I’d like to leave an afterglow

of smiles when life is done.

I’d like to leave an echo

whispering softly down the ways,

of happy times and laughing

times and bright and sunny days.

I’d like the tears of those who grieve

to dry before the sun
