Lillian was a Bowler, a Gardner and a dancer, especially the polka! Her real passions were photography and genealogy. She was an officer in the Czech Heritage Society. Lillian made two trips to Czechoslovakia in search of the family roots. She did family trees the old fashion way before it could be done on the internet. Lillian was a baseball fan, especially the Astros. Her love of the “Cougars” came from 20 years of service at the University of Houston. Lillian is and will be missed by many.
