Lilah retired early from Delphi Auto Manufacturing. She loved and cared deeply about her family. She found so much happiness spending time with her grandbabies. Lilah had a wonderful beauty and style all her own. Thom and Lilah did everything together. They enjoyed many hobbies together – cooking, woodworking, painting, gardening and crocheting. Our family finds peace in knowing that they are reunited in Heaven. We know they will continue to watch over us all from above.
