Lillian O. Albrecht Obituary
Lillian Owen Albrecht, 91, passed away on April 26, 2014. She was predeceased by her husband of 45 years, Gus Albrecht and her children Jaci, Tom and Barbara Jean. She is survived by her daughter Kate Long and husband Delbert of Central, Utah; and by her son-in-law Joe Farkas and wife Sandy of Clovis, California.

Lillian was surrounded by family who loved her dearly and an extended family of relations and friends from every walk of life. She is also survived by four grandsons and eight great-grandchildren: Jay Farkas (great-grandsons Benjamin, Zachary, and Matthew), Greg Robitaille (wife Elizabeth, great-grandsons Connor, Ethan, and Aidan), Lexi Robitaille (great-granddaughter Allie), and Nick Maholick (great-granddaughter Berlyn), as well as many in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends and family in Wales and in the U.S. too numerous to list but not forgotten.

Lillian was born on May 22, 1922 in Tonyrefail, Mid Glamorgan, Wales, and her Welsh heritage was extremely important to her. She prominently displayed the quote: "To be born Welsh, is to be born privileged. Not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but music in your blood, and poetry in your soul."

She was smart, witty, and a wickedly good bridge player. She loved golf and traveling, and was a very talented cook who enjoyed preparing and sharing meals with family and friends. Lillian was fearless and always willing to tackle new challenges, including teaching herself how to use a computer in her 80's; and while she suffered more than her share of heartache in her long life, she was resilient, optimistic, and gracious until the end.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life on Wednesday, May 7, at 11am at Candlewood Country Club (14000 Telegraph Rd, Whittier, CA 90604).
