February 21, 1932 - April 16, 2022
LEOMINSTER – Lillian A. “Lil” Richard, 90, passed peacefully at home, with her daughter by her side. Mom was born on February 21, 1932 in Fitchburg, MA. Her husband, Norman, predeceased her in 2019. In her younger years, Mom worked at Comfort Slipper, located in the Cleghorn section of Fitchburg. She held several other part time jobs, throughout her life. Mom’s greatest, and most important job, was that of being a stay-at-home Mom for her two children. They will be forever grateful for her selfless dedication in raising them to be God-fearing human beings. Anyone who crossed Mom’s path knew, immediately, that she was a devout Christian woman. She was a consummate empath, who always put others first, before herself. In the 1960s, Mom and Dad attended the then-popular Marriage Encounter. Shortly after this profound Christian fellowship with other couples, Mom made the decision to change her spiritual conviction, and became a Born-again Christian, accepting Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. Her humble service to the Lord continued until she was recently called home, when she finally reaped her ultimate, spiritual reward. Mom’s genuine Christian-example will be missed, immensely. Mom leaves her son Kenneth, and his wife Jean, of Dove Canyon, CA, and her daughter Lisa, and her husband Jeff, of Leominster. She also leaves her grandchildren: Jake Richard and his girlfriend, Haylie Freeman, Jake’s former wife, Diana, Josh Richard and his wife Nicole, Andrew Richard (WA,) Christine Safyurtlu and her husband, Butch (NV,) and Daniel Richard (WA.) Mom also leaves her great-grand children: Marco, Ariela, Waylon, Dagny, and a great-granddaughter, due in July. Mom also leaves two sisters: Clarice Lomaglio, and her husband Tom, and Pauline Bowen, and her husband Bob. Mom was predeceased by her parents, Regina (Cormier) and Anselme Leger, and her seven siblings: Ella Leger, Gerene Leblanc, Bernadette Balldarelli, Ovila Leger, Clarence Leger, Doris Legros, and Lucille Cormier. The family would like to thank the following, who lovingly assisted in allowing Mom to remain in her home: Personal aides Jane B., Meghan H., Pam D., Kristin L., Alina S., and Soledad S.; also, Melissa Cote, and staff, from Better Care Home Health; PT, OT, and nurses from HA Home Health; and nurses Lucia, Maura, Jill and aide Gloria, from Beacon Hospice. They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to ‘imitate’ Mom by spreading daily acts of love and kindness to, hopefully, counter the hate in the world that we are all currently seeing. The Isabelle-Anderson Funeral Home is assisting with Mom’s arrangements. Funeral services will be private.
