Lil grew up in Lincolnton and, after graduating from Lincolnton High School in 1965, pursued her dream of being a registered nurse. She had a fulfilling career at Presbyterian Medical Center that spanned 37 years and included many honors and accomplishments, including overseeing the opening of the first Oncology Unit at Presbyterian.

She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, friend and caregiver to many. She was loved by everyone who had the good fortune to know her and she will forever be in our hearts.
