  1. I worked with Lila for many years at Portland General Electric and she was one of the nicest, most conscientious and hard working of my co-workers. She performed her job with style and dignity. She was always kind to others. When my husband, Dean and I visited Arizona in 2010, we called her and she and Bob graciously invited us to their beautiful home in Goodyear. Lila was a beautiful person and I will miss her.

  2. Lila was my dear friend and sister in Alpha Gamma Delta Fraternity at Oregon State University. She was a true friend in every sense to those of us who knew her. She also had a special, fun loving spirit that was delightful to be around. I admired Lila for her accomplishments in academics and the arts, but also especially for her love and commitment to her family and friends. I am privileged to have known such a lovely person and true friend. I will miss her dearly.

  3. Hi Bob, Tony and Rusty
    I have never met you all personally, but I had the pleasure of doing Lila’s hair during the past three years. I am so saddened by her sudden departure. I felt very connected to Lila and so enjoyed visiting with her. She was the same age as my own mom. What a beautiful kind spirit. You all must be so devastated, as was I to learn of her sudden passing. May God find you peace and comfort while you deal with this difficulty.
