She was the daughter of George Garratt and Lillian Brown. She was born in Haverford, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Tredyffrin-Gasttown High School in 1932, and then attended the Manhattan Dental School, receiving a diploma as a dental nurse in 1935. She moved to Stamford, Connecticut, where she met and married Malcolm Miller Meyer. Lillian and “Mac” continued to reside in Stamford until 1976, when they moved to the island of Bermuda for 12 wonderful years in retirement. The couple then moved to Orlando to be nearer to their children.
Lillian was an avid gardener, bridge player and church volunteer. She served on the board of the Women’s Club and YMCA, both of Stamford, and had been a member of the West Orange Women’s bridge group as well as the Sandpointe Bridge Club for many years.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Malcolm; and her sister, Florence Garratt; and brother, George Garratt, both of Salisbury, Maryland. She leaves two sons, M. Garry Meyer and his wife, Kathleen, of Stuart, Florida, and Richard Meyer and wife, Nancy, of Orlando, Florida; and a granddaughter, Melody Ann Meyer, of Orlando.
Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service at noon Aug. 16, at the Presbyterian Church of the Lakes, 4700 Lincoln Ave., Orlando, Florida.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the church’s pastor discretionary fund or Cornerstone Hospice of Winter Park.
