Lillie Marie DiLauro (69) of Pine Bush, NY, went to Heaven on Friday, October 7, 2022. Lillie was born on June 21, 1953 in New York City and was the daughter of the late Vincent and Maria (Kulyk) Magnowski.
On August 4, 1973, Lillie married Angelo, her high school sweetheart and the love of her life. During 42 years of marriage, they built a life and family together. Sadly, Angelo passed away in October 2015. Lillie was actively involved in the Ukrainian community and with religious and senior organizations. She enjoyed going to church and working at Self Reliance NY before her retirement. Lillie loved her grandchildren, cooking big meals to share, spending time talking and shopping with family and friends, and crocheting blankets for babies and just about anyone she could think of. As a caretaker to her parents and husband, her warm and caring nature never wavered, even as she battled and beat cancer herself two separate times. Lillie will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
Lillie is survived by her children, Christina Marie DiLauro Abaya and her husband Araby of Los Angeles, CA, Andrea DiLauro Levene and her husband Jeffrey of Randolph, NJ, and Anthony Vincent DiLauro and his wife Jessica of Montgomery, NY; and has 7 grandchildren, Dakota Marie DiLauro, Ava Vale Abaya, Adam Vincent Levene, Anthony Hunter DiLauro, Alina Renee Levene, Juliet Amelia Levene and Julian Francis Levene. Lillie is also survived by her brother Nicholas Magnowski, her sister Irene Magnowski, and many cousins, nieces and nephews who were dear to her.
Visiting hours will be held on Friday, October 14th from 8:30am-12:30pm at HB Humiston Funeral Home, Kerhonkson, NY. The Divine Liturgy will follow at 1pm at the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Catholic Church, Kerhonkson, NY. Burial will be in Holy Spirit Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery, Campbell Hall, NY.
