Lillian Tuttle, “Lil,” beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grand, maker of the best chocolate chip cookies ever, a ”classy lady” who spoke what was on her mind.
On Tuesday, June 25, 2013, Norwalk Hospital/Connecticut Hospice Care, our Mom entered into eternal life at peace.
She and her husband Bill are long-time residents of Wilton. She was the youngest daughter of Naum and Mary (Kuderski) Kastuck of White Plains, NY and was predeceased by her parents and beloved sisters Helen, Estelle and brother Edwin.
A graduate of Syracuse University, she met her summer sweetheart, William Tuttle, while working at the Star Villa Hotel in Cape May, NJ. They married on May 21, 1949. Together they had four children, Carol Lyons, Stephanie Tuttle Zafiris, Robin Young, and Richard Tuttle. Lillian loved her children and whole extended family including Bob Lyons, Dimitri Zafiris, and Rob Young, her nine grandchildren Erin Lyons (Sowers) and husband Joe, Casey Lyons and wife Kim, Kyle Young, Jameson Lyons, Molly Lyons, Caitlin Young, Christopher Young, Katharine Zafiris and Ali Zafiris, and two great-grands Penelope and Violet.
She was independent, kind, opinionated, courageous and generous in all things. She was a long-time member of the Wilton Woman’s Club. She loved to travel and as a travel agent traveled to many wonderful and exotic destinations.
Lillian will be sorely missed by her family and all who knew her. A celebration of her life will be held later this summer. Memorial contributions may be made to: Connecticut Hospice or to a charity of one’s choosing.
