Hi - I am Lillian's daughter. She did not pass in Evansville. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree from Evansville College (now University) and she became a teacher in the Washington, D.C. metro area. When she passed on she was in an auto accident on the job as a visiting teacher at a high school in Fairfax County. Lillian held a Master's degree from American University in D.C. in education. She is buried in Maple Grove Cemetary beside her husband Harry Frederick Opperman. He had one sister, Hazel F. Opperman. Harry was a graduate of Evansville College and the University of Missouri School of Journalism. He then graduated with his law degree and passed the Virginia Bar as an attorney from what is now George Washington University. He retired from Trademark Division, Labor Department in D.C. and returned to live briefly in Evansville and then passed away with a brain tumour in 1974.

Lillian had one sister who died at birth. Her other sisters are Evelyn Decker, Thelma Tanner, Catherine Gotta, Sophie Waggoner, Blanche Ruston, Jeannette (don't know last name), Betty Dosier, Andrew Eble (passed on in California), Roscoe Eble (passed in Evansville) and Robert Eble, a veteran of WWII who lives in Indio, California.

Lillian and Harry's granddaughter is Susan Shaune Heywood. She is also a teacher (as were Evelyn, Thelma, Lillian, and Blanche). Susan has two undergrad degrees in mass comm. and English from the University of AL at Birmingham and she has a minor in Spanish from the U. of Mexico. She also holds an M.S.Ed. from Samford University, Birmingham, AL. The year Susan graduated from Samford, their Education School was named by the U.S. Dept. of Ed. Secretary in D.C. one of the top four education schools in the U.S. All degrees were conferred with top honors. She is a Kappan. Susan teaches gifted students in the Atlanta, GA metro area in Gwinnett County.

Hope this gives you a bit of an update.

Thanks for posting what you had. Best to you.
