The family would like to thank the staff of Ingraham Manor for their compassionate care. A private memorial will be held at a later date.

Lillian was one awesome neighbor and friend for over 40 years...I will miss your “watch” of our house for so many years. Loved our phone conversations...you had a way with words. I remember in the 70’s when our dryer caught fire and we just backed our car up your driveway and ran safely in your house with girls. We love you with all our hearts The Duclos family

Mark and I are so very sorry for your loss. Mrs. Krinitsky was such a kind person. Loved her Christmas cards, she always added a funny line or two. Please know we keep you all in our hearts and prayers. We will light a candle for her at our church.

With deepest sympathy,
Mark and Maryann Grodecki, SC

My dearest Cioci Lil....
I am so glad we were able to have lunch and that you were able to come visit and have our lemon cake. You were always so witty and I loved hearing all your stories. Now you are back with your dear husband and your best friend. Say hello to Babci for me.
You will be so missed.
Sending my love to Joyce, Kash, and John.
