My dear loved Aunt Lillian. I was very lucky to meet her 4 times in my life. Although difference of age I enjoyed a lot our encounters. I am the grand daughter of wiera kaplan sister of Lillian’s mother.
I admire her very smart and strong women she could live and manage alone up to almost the end
My codolences to all the family

My condolences. May Lillian’s memory be a blessing.
My mom, Joanie, ne Greenberg told me Lillian was a favorite great aunt (?) of hers. They shared family tree stuff and Lillian even attended my father Jordie’s funeral several years ago at Shalom. My mom noticed the obituary in the tribune and told me. I’ll stream it as will Joanie.

I moved with my family from NYC to Evanston about 12 years ago after having grown up in Deerfield.

Deepest sympathy again.
