    I will always cherish the time I got to spend with my dear "Grandma" listening to stories of her childhood and how Papa put her on a train to go to nursing school in Maryland. She was a hard working, talented lady, who not only cared for her patients while working, but loved and cared for animals as well. I always knew my four-leg babies were safe and warm when they were with her. Grandmas artistic talents were amazing...painting and wood working. She knew how to handle a skill saw!!!! I cherish my time with her and miss her every day. Love you my Lil!

    I worked with her as a nurse. She was a wonderful caring person and a compassionate nurse. May your good memories help you through this time.

    My grandma was the reason I became a nurse. She was always patient and kind to everyone. I hope to be as compassionate with my patients as she was with hers and continue to carry on her legacy. I love you Grandma

    Miss Lillian-She spent her time doing for so many and enjoyed every minute of it. Whether in the kitchen or the garage she was always busy creating something. She was handy with a hammer or a spatula, her tools of choice! My fondest memories were of her baking her famous chocolate chip cookies or baking dough to make ginger bread men Christmas ornaments for the children or seniors to paint. Our Christmas tree each year displays at least a dozen of them with their strips of scrap materials as scarves. She was so creative when it came to arts and crafts. Rest In Peace miss Lillian Lexie and I will cherish the years of memories we have. The cookie jar was rarely empty...
