The girl who was diagnosed with Polio at the age of two and told she’d never walk, drive a car or have children often briskly strolled to her vehicle, and took her twin daughters out for a ride. It was a combination of Lillian’s sheer will and the good doctors at Shriners. Her life was a learning adventure; she mastered everything from arts and crafts to touch typing. Lillian may have been strict with her daughters, but only because she wanted quality girls. Her later years were spent helping out with her daughter’s daycare in Claymont, the kids gathering around her. They loved her as much as she loved them.
She was the wife of the late Lawrence and is survived by twin daughters, Nancy Firko (Harry) and Diane Jenke-McMahan (Curtis); 4 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren and her brothers, Alfred Arnold and Earl Arnold and was pre-deceased by a sister, Dorothy Toomey.
