Dear Billy family members,
So sorry for sending my condolences late. I am so sorry for the loss of Lillie, she was my familys' siblings bus driver back in the day. She was a wonderful person, great driver, she showed how much she loved driving & her family members as well. I grew up with Michael & went to school with him, but younger then me. Really nice guy.
Again you have my deepest sympathies of your loss, may she rest in peace now within Our Lords care.
Love from: Colleen/Eleanor/Jeffrey Boyle

I think a kid dreads this time from the moment we realize our lives, particularly those of our mom and dad and family, one day ends.

Mrs. Henderson said Mom loved every kid on the school bus. That was so kind of her to say. But I'll add that she drove those that were displaced during the floods, the displaced Vietnamese to Indiantown Gap, and even the prisoners from Camp Hill to Pittsburgh during the riot for a love of Community.

If I recall correctly, she also served on McDevitt's School Board.

She wanted to be a Missionary and I guess this was as close as she got and was satisfied.
She did well.

I remember her homemade biscuits and Southern Fried Chicken as well as her Slovak Pigs in the blanket and homemade bread.

Most of all I remember a Mom that I will miss that was good to her Family and to her Community.

Rest Easy and thank you so much.

Lillie was one of the nicest person I ever knew. She drove my kids on her bus and was not just the school bus driver, she was all of their friends. When my youngest son was just little, he wanted to go on the school bus. Well, Lillie took him all over her route that day and he was delighted. I went along since he was so young and even I enjoyed the ride with her. I'm sure she is in heaven watching over all the kids that she drove and enjoying herself.
Rest in peace, Lillie, I love you!

Lillie was one of the nicest persons I know. She drove my kids on her school bus and was not just a driver, she was a friend to all the kids on her bus. Before my youngest son went to school, he wanted to go on the school bus for a ride. Well, Lillie took him on her route that whole day, of course, since he was so young, I went along for safety and I have to say, I enjoyed it too. I'll never forget that she did that, it meant so much to him.
I wish I would have stayed in touch with her, she was one fine lady!
Rest in peace, Lillie, I love you!
