Obituary for Lillian Wood (McKissick)

Lillian (McKissick) Wood, 93, longtime resident of Enfield, entered into Eternal Rest on Friday, January 24, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on November 17, 1926, in Charlton, MA, the daughter to the late Leslie and Gertrude (Cavanaugh) McKissick. She enjoyed her career at G.

She was a member of the Rosary Guild, and active with the Senior Center, especially for Bingo.

Ann, Jimmy, Nancy and families,
I will miss "Lil" everyday, she left the most important legacy any of us could hope to have, she made each of us better people. So many life lessons were learned simply by being with her. She and my Dad had very similar beliefs, didn't need words, just left us examples to folow.
we and our children will all better people for having them in our lives.
I know that all of the members of my family feel the same way. I love you all and we will see you all soon, so we can share our memories. Mary Cavanaugh Messier
