Lenore H. Garling nee Stift

February 14, 1933 - November 26, 2017

Lenore H. Garling nee Stift, age 84, of Warrenville, IL, formerly of unincorporated Lockport, IL, passed away on November 26, 2017 in Winfield, IL. She was born on February 14, 1933 in Chicago, IL and took great enjoyment in telling people she was a real live Valentine.

 Lenore is survived by her loving daughters Laurel (Larry) Delaney and Cherie (David) Wilkinson; her beloved grandchildren Patrice Delaney, Veronica Delaney, Rebecca Delaney, Karli (Tyler) Sumner, and Jorie Wilkinson; dear great grandmother to Eden Stahovic.

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 52 years, Wallace M. Garling, and her loving parents Florence and Frank Stift.

Lenore enjoyed participating in lunches, plays, and various other activities through the Warrenville Park District.

She had much joy going to dance at the Willowbrook Ballroom as it brought her memories of when Wally proposed to her there.

Having been legally blind for many years, Lenore learned to see through her heart, as it was evident in her ability to make friends everywhere she went.
