Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 65 years, George Croft, who passed away on March 3, 2016; her brother, Charles Mason, and her sister, Martha Vesper.

Funeral services for Lily will be held on Friday, Feb. 16, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Lane Family Funeral Homes, Niles Chapel, 415 Robbins Ave. in Niles. Friends and family may visit one hour prior to services from 10 to 11 a.m.
