Lillian Victoria Aronson Norquist Obituary
Norquist, Lillian Victoria Aronson SAN DIEGO -- Lillian Norquist passed away peacefully in her home on October 18, 2013, at the age of 94. Lillian was born in Badger, Minnesota, on July 15, 1919, and spent her childhood on the family homestead in Wannaska, MN. On Christmas Eve 1940, while a Minnesota blizzard raged outside, Lillian married the love of her life, Leslie Gordon Norquist of Roseau, MN. They promptly left Minnesota in their 1933 Ford coupe and headed for San Diego, California and warmer weather. Lillian and Les settled into their home in Mission Hills and became very active in the community. Les passed away in 1974, but Lillian remained in the house they bought together for 70 years. Lillian's passion was her involvement with the Vasa Club and the House of Sweden where she developed many of her lifelong friendships. Lillian is survived by her four children, Richard, Wayne, Jerry and Ann, by nine grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. The Service will be held at Greenwood Memorial Park and Mortuary at 4300 Imperial Ave., San Diego, CA 92113, in the Salli Lynn Chapel on Tuesday, October 29th, at 11 a.m. followed by a reception at the House of Sweden in Balboa Park at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, Lillian requested that anyone wishing to, donate to Mission Hospice of San Diego, 2365 Northside Dr. Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92108.
