Lillian Freis Obituary
October 28, 1912 - November 14, 2016 Lillian Freis passed away Tuesday, November 14, 2016 at the age of 104. Her mind was clear and bright until her final few days. She celebrated her last birthday with joy just two weeks before her death and was thrilled to be surrounded by her loving family. Lillian was born in Warsaw, Poland and at the age of six months immigrated with her parents, David and Gertrude Smith, two brothers, Jack and Teddy and her sister, Mary to Toronto, Canada. Her father, David was a master tailor and fashion designer who instilled in her the love of beauty and fine quality. In the early 1940's Lillian moved to California where she met her husband, Alfred Freis, who was in the Judge Advocate General's Office in the United States Army during WWII. When he set up his law practice after the war, she assisted him with managing the front office and later worked at the UCLA School of Law. Lillian wanted children more than anything and was thrilled with the birth of each of her four daughtters, Carol (Richard), Susan (Jimmy, deceased), Andrea (Marc) and Diane (Neil).She was an incredibly loving and caring mother who was always there with wisdom and emotional support. She saw to it that her daughters were well educated, well dressed and raised in a stimulating and enriching environment. To her last days, she was always there to listen and provide love and encouragement. Throughout her life, Lillian had many friends and made new ones to the very end. She will be profoundly missed by her daughters, their significant others, her grandchildren, Nina (Larry), Morgan (Jennifer) James, Eric, Alexa, Ben, Lisa and Jason and by her first great granddaughter, Vivienne. She was predeceased by her husband, Alfred. The funeral will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at 1:00 pm at Pacific View Memorial Park at 3500 Pacific View Drive, Corona del Mar, California 92625.
