Folsom Funeral Service

Kerallah, Lillian

   It is with sadness that we announce that our dear Lillian Kerallah passed away from COVID-19 on Tuesday, May 12, with a kind hospice nurse at her side. Stratford Street United Church was ‘home’ to Lillian, who continued to sent greeting cards to her long-time friends from her bedside at Stonehedge (she never forgot Bud & Minetta’s anniversary). Nancy was Lillian’s regular visitor, bringing her gum, greeting cards, stamps, and the presence of SSUC and God. Each year, we would celebrate her birthday with her favorite Harvey Wallbanger cake (as she aged, she had to give up the cocktail for which she was famous for in her working years). Lillian found the bright side of every situation, even eating the cake the year that Enid forgot to add the baking powder into the batter. And, oh, her beloved Red Sox: the joy of their 2018 championship endured, she loved Big Papi, and stood faithfully by Alex Cora. Bob Folsom met with Lillian in 2015, to plan for this day. We will honor her wishes; we will celebrate Lillian’s life when we can gather in the Memorial Garden with her ashes. Barbara will sing and Enid will make a Harvey Wallbanger cake with ALL of the ingredients. Nancy always said that Lillian could find the best in every situation, which is another way of saying that God was a joyful presence in her life. May the Lord support us all the day long, ’til the shades lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over. Then in God’s mercy, may He give us a safe lodging, and holy rest, and peace at the last.

    Lillian was a constant in my life growing up. She was always kind. I know she is in heaven and much appreciated by the angels

    I had the good fortune to have worked with Lillian at Gillette in South Boston. She was known for her work ethic and sense of humor.

    Lillian was a long time friend of the David family. She was a constant companion and friend to my aunts on Vershire Street. A honorary member of the family! May she Rest In Peace.
