Lillian Kozlik Kehoe, age 84, of Ridgefield, loving wife, adored mother, devoted grandmother and great-grandmother, died peacefully after a brief battle with cancer on Sunday, May 25. Unwilling to be apart from her husband, Jerry, who passed away on May 21st, she followed him just four days later. Lillian and Jerry, lifelong soul mates, began dating at the age of 16, married at the age of 18, and just recently celebrated their 66th anniversary. During her final hours, Lillian was surrounded by her family, who will miss her deeply but who understand that she needed to be with Jerry, from whom she was rarely apart.
Lillian was born in Manhattan, New York to the late Dorothy (Koch) and Charles Kozlik. She was raised in Queens (Middle Village) and attended P.S. 49 and Newtown High School (Elmhurst).
