Lillian Marie Fagan

March 22, 1925 - July 28, 2021



Lillian was the youngest and last surviving of 15 children. She also lived the longest, to age 96. Her parents immigrated to America in the early 1900s from a small town, Capestrano, in Abbruzzi, Italy. Her father was a civil engineer, working in the coal mines of Colorado. After growing up on a farm until age 16, they moved to Southern California while she was in high school. After attending secretarial college, she worked as a secretary for 18 years, and enjoyed having her own apartment. During that time she met her husband, Robert Fagan, at a Pasadena big band dance. They married in 1955.

They relocated to Sacramento soon after, and she continued to work full time, while they had 3 children. After enjoying being home 15 years raising her family, she returned to work in the fashion business for 15 years, which was her first love.. she enjoyed travel, grandchildren, exercise, and work. They lived the American dream, happily married for 57 years. It’s a wonderful life!

Lillian is survived by her 3 children:
Kathryn Blanchard, Patricia Polcuch, and Thomas Fagan, and her 4 grandchildren.

  1. Our Aunt Lillian was a sweet and kind person. She loved her immediate family and all of us nieces and nephews. We were fortunate to visit her for many years in Southern California, and also to visit her in her last home close to her son in Northern California. She had a happy and active life. We miss you dear Aunt Lillian but know you’ve joined your husband and your brothers and sisters. May you Rest In Peace and God bless your family. Many precious memories.

  2. Mom, I miss you now more than when you were here with us. But I rejoice that you have joined dad and hope you are dancing in heaven with him

      I loved the pictures of your mom and dad in the slideshow , and it reminded me of the great times that our aunts, uncles and cousins had with each other as children and adults.
