Lila was an exceptional cook and worked at Greasy Elementary School, making delicious meals for many years. In her spare time, she could be found planning family dinners, taking care of her pets, or going to yard sales. She was also a very good writer and had many of her poems published. The time she spent with her husband, children, and grandchildren was very special to her.
