During her teens she was highly involved in the Foursquare Church, acting as President of her youth group and loved music and worship. She and her high school sweetheart, Robert "Bob" D. Hoover, who came home on leave before serving overseas in the Navy, were married on November 3, 1945. After the war, Lillian and Bob attended Northwest Bible College in Kirkland, Wa. Their first daughter was born while living there. After graduation, they moved back to Spokane where they had a son, then another daughter. With the family of three children they enjoyed taking time for camping, swimming and fishing. Lillian also spent a lot of time as a volunteer working with the Bluebirds and Brownies organizations, and was on the planning committee for Sacajawea Jr. High School.

She always kept active throughout her life and enjoyed gardening at their home in Spokane.
