Lili had that kind of effect on everyone.
Lili lived most of her life in Hillsborough and San Mateo. Her interests included socializing, travel and art. Lili sold real estate for 20 years on the Peninsula, and raised four wonderful children there.
Valery (husband John) Lytle, Joan (husband Matt) Love, Steve (wife Sandra) Ferguson, and Keith (wife Claudia) Ferguson, were with their mom at her bedside when she left this world.
