After retiring she worked as the greeter/receptionist at Footnotes Dance Academy. Lil loved to sing and was blessed with a beautiful voice she used in the church choir, duets with her husband, Chuck, the Heavenly Blend and with the children of Walton Hills Church of Christ. Miss Lil taught Sunday School and worked with Christian Endeavor and the youth of the church. During that time, she wrote and directed many talent shows, programs for Mother Daughter banquets and wrote poetry. She was a member of the Pairs and Spares Sunday School class and a deaconess, active in the Women’s Christian Service group and taught Vacation Bible School. Lil, being an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan, could give you any and all information about her team. She loved Sundays when the family would gather to watch them after church. She had parties for all of their championships and Super Bowls. Lil loved her Pomeranians – all of which were named Tessie.
