Lilian Macler Corrigan, a long-time resident of Smokey Point, passed away on Oct. 1, at the age of 89. Recently she had resided at Josephine Sunset Home. Lilian was born on Aug. 24, 1917 in Woodhaven, N.Y. and moved to Sebastopol, Calif. at the age of three. She graduated from Analy High School, where she was an outstanding scholar and track athlete, and from Santa Rosa Junior College. After retiring from a career in the medical field in 1982, she moved to Washington.
Lilian was always an active church member and attended the Arlington Free Methodist Church. She had a green thumb and produced beautiful roses and fuchsias. She loved all sports, especially football, and was a staunch 49er fan. Her pet peeve was that Seattle sportscasters spent way too much time covering the Seahawks, and too little on her beloved Niners.
She is survived by her daughter Janine (Dareld) Clark, Camano Island, and grandsons Paul Gammicchia, Chicago and Shan (Karla) Clark, Oregon and by five great-grandchildren.
A private service will be held in Petaluma, Calif. when her ashes are buried beside her parents and grandparents. Donations to the American Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
