As a new Auxiliary volunteer I was only fortunate enough to have been scheduled to work with Miss Lillian two or three times. She welcomed me into the group and I will always remember how kind and helpful she was to me. My sympathy to all that were more fortunate to have known her longer. May she forever live in your hearts.
