Lila loved to cook, read, and travel. She had a giving spirit and was known to purchase gifts on speculation. She co-taught a religious-education class for adults with mental retardation for several years. But her ultimate pleasure was to be in her Master’s house sharing in worship to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to whom she gave praise for what He was able to do through her.
