Lillian Mildred D’Angelo, loving mother of Thomas and Karyn D’Angelo of Island Lake, and Lynn D’Angelo of Atlanta, peacefully went to rest on Friday, September 11, 2020. She was born in Chicago October 22, 1929, the daughter of the late Jack and Anna Bell.

Lillian spent her career as an Editorial Assistant for Immaculata Magazine published out of Marytown, Libertyville. She was an avid reader, writer and U.S. history buff. A loving devoted mother, she supported her daughters’ passions for equestrian sports and her son’s aviation aspirations. Lillian was a seasoned traveler who loved visiting Europe and discovering almost every state in the U.S. Through her talented creativity, she built an extensive miniature Christmas village which was a family tradition for many holiday parties and on display year-round.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Dominic, and her sister Margaret Miller.
