  1. Lillian Payton was a wonderfully gifted, kind and fun loving individual. She had great beauty and a love for life and laughter.
    She will be missed, but her spirit will live on. She loved her family including Margaret(Payton)Telfer & her husband Larry, Jerry Torok & his wife Janice, Fred Payton & his wife Donita, and Randy Payton (who will be showing Lillian the ropes) and his wife Mala.
    I will miss Lillian because her love for life was contagious. That twinkle in her eye will never be forgotten. She represented what is good and pure in the world even though her sense of humor could be PG rated.
    Thank you for the kind people who took care of her during her later years ; Shirley, Andrew, the sheriff, Donita and Fred and many others. I wish I knew you but I live 1,000 miles away.
    What I do know is Lillian exemplified great love & fun to me and my sister Lori. She and her girlish giggle will live with me forever. I will miss her very much but I know she and my uncle Randy and her sister Mary will be having the time of their heavenly lives.

  2. To The Family Of Lillian Payton, I was sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I lived in the neigborhood in the 60’s and 70’s and she was always so sweet. God Bless Lilliam. Kay Toots Hauber Jones
