She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; daughter and son-in-law, Debra M. and David Lowery; and a brother, Bobby Frady.
Lillian and Larry were married while he was in the U.S. Air Force. From that moment she became a devoted wife, caring for her husband and her children and making sure that there was fun, even when times were tough. She was a woman of faith who prayed religiously and always made sure that her children knew their Lord and Savior and the importance of attending church and having a "family" there as well. It was important to her that her children be kept busy and out of trouble and she enjoyed it when they watched wrestling with her, attended stock car races, went skating, several of the things she loved to do.
Lillian and Larry were long-time members of the Anchor of Hope Fellowship in Keokuk for many years and she attended services at Trinity Worship in Kahoka with her children. She enjoyed wherever she might attend services as long as she could worship God.
Life wasn't always easy for Lillian, especially as a child, but she never lost her faith and shared her faith lovingly wherever she went and at the Clark Co. Nursing Home where she made her home the last five years. She loved playing bingo at the nursing home and sharing the "goodies" she received. Her family made sure to surround Lillian with their love and made sure she was able to attend as many of their activities as possible. She truly loved people and never knew a stranger. One of the gifts she and Larry shared was the absolute love and adoration they shared for each other, even to the end of her serving him breakfast in bed for 16 years and taking off his socks and shoes after a long day of his working two jobs to provide for his family. One of greatest desires and memory was walking with Larry in the moonlight on the beach.
Funeral services will be held Friday, July 3, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka with Pastor Kim McNamar officiating. Burial will follow in the Bonaparte Cemetery at Bonaparte, IA.
