Lillian Sills, age 93, passed away on Monday, June 13, 2016 at Lakeshore Manor, Clermont, FL. She was born on November 16, 1922 in Huntington, N.Y. to George and Ida Kannemann. Her parents were both born in Germany in 1884. Lillian was an only child, however, her parents raised two foster children, William and Julie Drager, who were known as Lillian's older brother and sister. Lillian grew up on the Kahn Estate on Long Island (now OHEKA Castle) where her father was the Engineer for 26 years. Lillian graduated from South Huntington High School and also attended Poughkeepsie Business Institute. She proudly worked for W.T. Grant Company, American Fire & Casualty Company and Grumman Aircraft (was a Rosie the Riveter). She and her family moved to Florida in 1948. Lillian had always wanted to fly a plane and completed her 1st solo flight at Showalter Airpark on April 10, 1949. Lillian worked for Rollins College and Orange County Public Schools before retiring. The things she enjoyed most in life were traveling (anywhere), eating out (it didn't matter where), gardening, being outside, collecting antiques, talking with her friends, and spending holiday's with family. Lillian is preceded in death by her parents and daughter, Carol Sills Dent. She is survived by her daughter Kathie Sills Andriano (Robert), grandson Christopher N. Chondrogiannis and cousin Judy Boyer (Frank). The family is extremely grateful for all the thoughts, prayers, and loving care that Lillian received from extended family, friends, employees of Granny Nannies, Cornerstone Hospice, Compassionate Care Hospice and the family/owners of Lakeshore Manor. In memorial to Lillian, the family asks that a donation be made to her grandson's church that is scheduled to launch on October 16, 2016 in Maryland. Send donations to: Highlight Church, in care of Chris Chondrogiannis, Creative Director, 814 Curry Ford Lane, Gaithersburg, MD 20878.
