Jeanette Dorothy Lilly

Born November 21, 1928 to immigrant parents from the Netherlands, Pete and Anna Folkens in Rock Rapids, Iowa. They moved to Enumclaw when she was seven years old.

She married Mahlon (Fid) Lilly in August, 1956 and spent most weekends camping & fishing with their children and friends at their lot on the Cowlitz River.

After retirement they would head to Yuma, Arizona in their motorhome for a couple months in the winter, stopping at favorite places along the way. Summers were spent at Sekiu fishshing and spending time with their many friends. Their children and grandchildren spent a lot of time with them fishing. At 6:00 every night they played rummy no matter where they were. Friends and family all knew this, whether you watched or played with them it was very entertaining. She loved watching e Price is Right every morning at 10:00. You could always find a puzzle being put together on the dining room table. Throughout the day she would put a few pieces together, her grandchildren would always try to finnd pieces when visiting. She was very proud of her Dutch heritage, teaching her grandchildren and some of their friends the language.

Jeanette passed at home on May 17, 2016. She leaves behind her children Doug Taylor (Gina), Steve (Penny) and Cindee Lilly, seven grandchildren and ten great grandchildren, with one on the way, her brother, Arend Folkens of Santa Rosa, and many nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, parents and sister, Pearl Hardersen. At her wishes, the immediate family had a small gathering at the Tahoma Cemetery on Thursday, June 9th, where she was placed with her husband.

WE WILL MISS YOU MOM, but we will celebrate your life everyday!!
