Her hobbies were golfing, fishing, bowling, dancing, and challenging friends to a game of dominoes or Scrabble. Lillian's free spirit and engaging laughter will be missed.

Am so sorry for your loss. I remember her because she still look the same. I was a little when I met her.


My prayers and sympathy are extended to the family and loved ones of Mrs. Koller. Keep your faith in the resurrection promised at John 5:28, 29. Soon God will put an end to all sickness, sorrow and pain. He will also do away with our enemy death as promised at 1 Corinthians 15:26. Pray for God's kingdom to come as Jesus taught us to do. Please be comforted by the words expressed at Revelation 21:3, 4. Remember: God keeps His promises and it is impossible for God to lie!
