Lillian Pickens

ILION - Lillian Hagadorn Pickens, “Lilly”, was born November 4th, 1939. She passed away at the age of 80, on Wednesday, June 24th, 2020, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. She is survived by her sisters and brother and her devoted loving husband, Richard L. Pickens. They were together and married for 47 years. They were two peas in a pod! They laughed and loved each other to the fullest every single day. Lilly was predeceased by her two sons, Terry Tucker and Frank. However, Lillian had many step-children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and will always be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched. She was especially close to her grandson, Matt Pickens. Lillian worked for some time at the Knight Spot, in Frankfort and it was there that Lilly’s spirit and character endeared her to everyone who met her. She also loved to play BINGO! Funeral services will be held on Saturday, June 27th, 2020, at 11:00 AM, at the Enea & Ciaccia Family Funeral Home, 4309 Acme Road (Town of Frankfort), Ilion, New York. We will have a brief prayer service and then interment will take place in Oak Hill Cemetery, Herkimer, New York. Calling hours for family and friends will be held at the funeral home on Saturday morning, prior to the service from 9:30 AM until 11:00 AM. Those wishing to remember Lillian in a special way are asked to consider a donation in her memory to Hospice and Palliative Care, 4277 Middle Settlement Road, New Hartford, New York 13413. Lilly’s passing occurred at the Siegenthaler Center early Wednesday morning and she received excellent care there.
