Lila tells us she was born in North Bend in June of 1947. She has a brother, two half- brothers, and one half- sister. Her brother worked for the Secret Service and couldn’t tell much of what his work entailed, but told her that he guarded John F. Kennedy when he was in New York. She is the youngest of the children. Her Mom was a waitress and at six years old she would stand on a stool and wash dishes where Mom worked and she also sold newspapers.
After 30 years of marriage Lila became a widow. She married her best friend and states they had a good marriage for those years. When she met her future husband they got into an argument. They must have worked that one out…..
She is proud of her two sons, ages 52 and 50. They are very good men.
Being a Certified Pharmacy Technician for 30 years, Lila stated that she worked with some very nice people during those years. A highlight of her job was that she mixed chemo therapy drugs for IV’s. She owned a restaurant in Chinook from 1999 to 2003 and this gave her the experience took to run a Senior Center in Chinook. She now helps Larry once a week and may volunteer more hours after she settles into her home.
Lila has learned to trust God to take care of you. He is in control – for your good in the long run.
Asking what Lila looked forward to, she didn’t hesitate – going to heaven to see her husband.
