Lillian Webster Harper

December 25, 2009

Lillian Webster Harper died Friday. Lillian was born April 1, 1922, the daughter of Donald O. and Mildred Howard Webster Sr. After graduating from Onondaga Valley Academy, she worked for the New York Telephone Company, where she met her husband, John E. Harper Sr., to whom she was happily married for 60 years. Lillian also worked for Terrell's Potato Chips as a bookkeeper and The South Side News in the advertising dept. She was an avid gardener, a volunteer companion for the elderly and the Webster family genealogist. She was proud of her family's heritage, being a descendant of Ephraim Webster Jr., one of the first European settlers in Onondaga Valley, and she lived her entire life in the valley on the south side of Syracuse.

Lillian is survived by two brothers, Donald Jr. and Richard Webster; one son, John E. (Merikay) Harper Jr. of LaFayette, NY; two daughters, Diane Harper of Chuluota, Florida, and Sue Okoniewski of Syracuse, NY; four grandchildren; six great- grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, John, in 2005, and by her sister, Shirley Webster Graham, in 1986.
