Obituary

After 38 years without her LiL Abner, Daisy Mae has gone to be with her Babe. Preceded in death by her husband Paul, father Pasquale Lombardi, mother Josephine (Ferrone-Romolo) Lombardi, brother Sal Lombardi (Isabelle), sister Evelyn Lantz (Bob), and niece Patty Lombardi.

She is survived by her 4 children. Paul II (Debby), Frank (Cheryl), Lynn Hill (Mike), and Anthony Steven (Cathy). 9 Grandchildren Michelle Ouerfelli, Bryon Bertollt, Diana Wallace, Beverly Hill, Alicia Edgar, Athena Bertollt, Nicolas Bertollt, Andrea Bertollt, and Kristin Bertollt. 11 Great grandchildren Derrick, Mikey, Alayasia, Nathan, Alex, Savannah, Myrna, Juscia, Aleetin, Gianna, Darien. And one Great Great Granchild Payton.

Born in her home on Mariposa St., the only record of her birth was her baptismal certificate from Mount Carmel Church. In the '20s her father had a home built at the corner of 42nd and Green Ct. She graduated from St. Catherine's of Sienna grade school in 1936, and a Holy Family High graduate of 1940. She attended Barnes Business College.

After meeting her husband Paul Bertollt on a blind date and being courted, they moved into the house on W. 45th Ave. in 1946. They bought her Grandmothers house from her mother for 10 dollars and other good and valuable consideration in 1954 a whole two and a half blocks from where she grew up.

She helped start the St. Catherine's credit union, was a credit union manager for White Crown Credit Union (Standard Oil), then for almost 25 years managed the Denver Texaco Employees Federal Credit Union. Along the way she was a waitress, seamstress, baker, volunteer campaigner, den mother, neighborhood mother, fried bread supplier, noodle maker.........and a great friend.

She received from her friends in high school during one of their luncheons of the longest living in the same house.

Her energetic personality, great dancing, good naturedness and a laugh were contagious to all who met her. A fabulous cook, world traveler and great friend will be missed but not forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Lillian's name to the Alzheimer's Association or the American Cancer Society.
