Together, they made their home in her husband’s hometown of East Liverpool, where they enjoyed family and friends.

A Catholic by faith, Lillian worked at the former Loblaw’s Grocery for some time, and then at Billingsley’s Foodland until its closing.

Her husband, Harley, preceded her in death on Nov. 12, 2004.

Lillian leaves behind her daughter, Susan Conley and her husband, David, of East Liverpool, as well as a grandson, Craig Conley and his wife, Joelle, of Columbus. There are two step-grandsons, Kevin Conley and his wife, Barb, of East Palestine, and David Conley of Wellsville, along with a step-great-grandson, Paul Conley of Cleveland.

Rev. Tanta Luckhardt-Hendricks of Emmanuel Presbyterian Church will officiate at funeral services to be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Dawson Funeral Home.

Friends may visit at the funeral home on Monday, where the family will be present from 5 to 8 p.m.
