Her career continued as PASSPORT and the Joint Commission; ultimately, retiring in 2004 from Indian Valley Schools where she was the school nurse.
Lillian was blessed to find her soul mate as a young lady and 7 years later, she and Gene Boggiani were married. Together, they greatly enjoyed seeing the country in their motor homes. This passion began in 1972 when they purchased their first one, and continued throughout the last 30 years, especially enjoying numerous trips to Myrtle Beach in it with their family. They were also members of Immaculate Conception Church in Dennison.
She will be deeply missed by her husband, Gene; her daughter, Lisa Boggiani of Midvale; three sisters, Donna (husband, Randy) Cadle of Midvale, Hilda Studer of Port Washington, and Katherine (husband, Tom) Sayre of Canton; her dog, Barney; and her grand-dogs, Astro and Annie. Numerous nieces and nephews complete the family.
