Lillian was a member of Infant Welfare Society Oak Park Circle 1 for many years, an avid bridge player, loyal fan of all Chicago sports teams, and huge supporter of sending Hallmark cards. She loved betting on the ponies and enjoyed traveling the world, especially on cruises. Lilka embraced her Czech and Slovak heritage and of course, Prague was her favorite city she visited.
