Lila Theresa Lazier Matyjasik, 88, passed peacefully in the wee hours of May 25, 2016, joining her beloved husband of 66 years, John, who passed just four years ago with her at his side. They built a family together, from which several generations have now sprung; the two of them the foundation on which they all leaned on for inspiration, wisdom, strength, compassion and love. Even as John and Lila have moved on from this world, they very much remain the source of the strength and the love that their subsequent generations intend to carry forward in their honor. Lila was born November 19, 1927 in France. She was a survivor of the atrocities of Nazi Germany, so there is no record of her early life save for the pieces of memories that had remained with her, which she was only able to share a little here and there. She spoke with a wisdom, born of real life experience overcoming hardships and difficulties none of us could imagine. She spoke with a love that felt like the warmth of the sun shining on you and you alone. The combination of love and strength in her eyes when she spoke to you about life was impossible to miss. Lila is survived by four children, John Edward Matyjasik, Ted Matyjasik, Barbara Gray and Patsy Matyjasik. She is also survived by eight grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. Rather than flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to any charity supporting veterans and their families. The family will accept visitation from 4 - 6 p.m., Saturday, May 28, 2016, at John and Lila's home at 1109 Alpine Dr. in Weaver. Condolences may be left at www.chapelhillfh.com
