Lillian Lyle (Costa) passed peacefully from this life October 19, 2017.

She was born in 1929 in New Bedford, Massachusetts to Manual and Mabel (Delmira) Costa into a large and loving Portuguese family and lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts and most recently New Hampshire.

She was a secretary at several businesses and schools throughout her life but her greatest joy was maintaining a home for her family and spending time with them camping and attending church. She also enjoyed sewing, crafts, gardening and caring for her many dog friends. She was most beloved by any who knew her and a precious gift from God to this world.

She was predeceased by her husband Max Lyle who served in WW2 and Korea, her brother George Costa and a grandson Justin Stewart, a US Marine Reservist. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Kay and Brian Stewart of Swanzey, NH and her grandson Alex, his wife Colleen, and two great grandchildren on Cape Cod. She also has seven surviving siblings and many, many nieces and nephews who she all adored.

The family would like to thank the Genesis staff at Langdon Place and the Keene Center for their kind and loving care of Lillian over the last several years.
