In Loving Memory of
MRS. LILLIAN FITZGERALD
March 11, 1932 to May 26, 2022
Lillian Patricia Fitzgerald (Walsh) was born on March 11, 1932 in Brooklyn, New York and passed away peacefully, with her husband, son, and grandchildren by her side, on May 26, 2022 in Boynton Beach, Florida.
Lillian spent her childhood years in Brooklyn, New York, attending our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and graduating from Richmond Hill High School in 1950. She worked as a representative for the telephone company and eventually met her husband, Jim. After getting married at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Brooklyn on June 19, 1954, Lillian and Jim relocated to Camp LeJeune, North Carolina, where Jim served as a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps.
Upon completion of Jim’s service, Lillian and Jim moved back to New York, settling in Queens Village, where Jim worked as a CPA and Lillian was mother to three children Cathy, Jim and Theresa. In 1965 they moved to Floral Park, where their youngest child, Patrick, was born, and later to Garden City where they became long time members of Cherry Valley Golf Club.
Lillian was a beloved wife, devoted mother and cherished grandmother. She was also a caring daughter, sister, aunt, godmother and loyal friend. Lillian was blessed to become a great-grandmother in 2008 and joyfully assumed her role as matriarch of four generations.
Lillian was very proud of her Irish heritage and her Catholic faith which she happily passed on to her children and grandchildren. In more recent years Lillian enjoyed a quieter pace of life in Boynton Beach, Florida where she enjoyed golfing and watching Turner Movie Classics.
Lillian was predeceased by her parents, Ellen (Maloney) and Patrick J. Walsh, her brothers William, Patrick, and Edward, and her daughter, Theresa McCormack.
She is survived by her husband Jim; children Cathy Morrissey (Brian), Jim (Joanne), and Patrick; her eight grandchildren, Brian Morrissey (Tara), Lisa Fitzgerald-Sgro (Michael), Erin McNamara (Brian), Meghan Morrissey, Laura Fitzgerald-Bowler (Michael), James McCormack, Caitlyn Iannarone (Sean) and Kevin Morrissey; and five great grandchildren Saoirse McNamara, Daniel, Sean and Brendan Morrissey and Julianna Sgro.
