Lillian married the love of her life, Richard Schinke Sr. on September 2, 1950. Her pride and joy was her family and going to the cottage on Sawyer Lake. Mom had a love for dogs and raised and bred Shetland Sheepdogs for many years. She loved to play Canasta and had a knack for always coming out on the winning side.
