Lillian was an original. Married at 18 to neighbor Irving Rosenberg, who, 7 years older, had returned from service in WWII and won her heart at a dance, Lillian became the belle of every ball. She was heart-broken when she became a widow at age 50, and resolved to live life to the fullest—and did so for the next 45 years. She lit up every room, became not only a wife and mother, but a watercolor artist, one of the first Weight Watchers lecturers in the Michigan area, and a sought-after fashion coordinator. She befriended all she met as she travelled literally around the world, from Japan to her parents’ native Hungary (she was fluent in Hungarian), and closer to home at her favorite Once Upon a Bagel, attending sports events for her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and numerous JUF events she loved. She was devoted to her brother Emil, who contracted Polio before the vaccine was available, and whose sparkle and resilience inspired her each day. She led her life with love, vigor and beauty, always toasting to “Happy Times”-- including her 95th Zoom birthday with all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren—toasting their beloved Gigi (Glamorous Grandma).

The family invites friends to join them for a zoom shiva on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
