Lillian R (Heffron) Leeman, passed away at her home in Salem, New Hampshire on Friday evening, February 2, 2007. The wife of the late Archie E. Leeman who passed away in 2004, she was 80 years old.
Lillian was born in her family home in Medford. She was the daughter of the late Francis and Elizabeth Heffron. She was raised and educated in Charlestown where she lived until moving to Burlington in 1965. She remained in Burlington until 2002 when she moved to New Hampshire to live with her daughter Shelley and her family.
Lillian was a loving and devoted wife to her late husband Archie for fifty-nine years and they were inseparable until his passing in 2004. They had been together since they were both 18 years old and she was the love of his life.
Lillian was a wonderful mother and role model for her two daughters, always knowing what was best for them, no matter how old they were, and she was usually always right. Lillian was the happiest being around her family, especially her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren, always asking, “How are the babies doing?” Even as sick as she was she never complained about her illnesses and wanted to make sure that her family was okay.
A day will not go by that her family will not miss her. There will always be something around that will remind them of Lillian but there is comfort for the family in knowing that she is once again with the love of her life, Archie.
