Lillian was a sweet and compassionate person who always saw the good in others. She was always willing to babysit her niece and nephew and their children. Lillian loved to travel and took many vacations with her brother. Some of Lillian’s favorite adventures were trips to Europe, Branson, the North Eastern United States and many of the National Parks.

Lillian loved to read, play cards, attend Vikings and Twins games, collect coins, complete sudoku, and jigsaw puzzles and was the keeper of the Kronenberg and Phillipp family history. Lillian was also the primary caretaker for many elderly family members. Church participation was essential to Lillian. She volunteered at St. Peter’s Catholic Church frequently as a funeral greeter, delivering Meals on Wheels, and visiting with parishioners at Country Manor.
