Lillian was the mother of Dr. Frank Baxter, an award-winning TV personality, a pioneer in educational television programming and performance as well as a USC English professor.

Note regarding final disposition:
Lillian desired to have her cremated ashes scattered from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. Due to the wartime gasoline rationing, the family could not afford the trip to San Francisco and scattered her ashes off a local bridge in Los Angeles County. The location has since been forgotten by surviving family members.
