She was the grandmother to Steven, Alex, Toni Ann, Victoria, Alyssa, Dominick, Anthony, AJ, and Nicole, and her 10 great-grandchildren. Lillian was born in the Bronx, New York on March 28, 1937 where she lived until her family moved to Secaucus in 1941, her permanent home. This is where she would grow up and raise her own children. She was a hardworking woman with a huge heart and witty sense of humor. There wasn’t anything she loved more than being surrounded by family and those she loved. She was always the life of the party or family gathering. She loved caring for her garden and raising many dogs. In the 70’s and 80’s Lillian was the owner of Melody Inn in West New York. She later worked for the Secaucus School District from 1995-2014, where she enjoyed cooking and serving meals for thousands of students. Lillian enjoyed telling stories of her childhood, most specifically about the wonderful weekends she and her family spent at their summer home in Belmar.
