Karpiak, Lillian B. AVERILL PARK Lillian Bloomingdale Karpiak, passed into the hands of the Lord at home on November 16, 2012 with those who loved her around her. Jesus came and said- "Come to Me my child, it's time. Your pain will cease, Your fear will end. Come live with My Father and Me." You are now my angel mom: you've got your wings and someday God will bring me to you - our love will never end. Thank you, mom! Born in New York City to Lena Gatzendorfer and Frederick Bloomingdale, Lillian spent most of her early years on or near the Hudson River, growing up loving the water.
