In 2007 the Chamber presented her with the prestigious Key Award.

Chris and members of the Vacca Family,
I want to express my condolences to the family. Your mom was a truly kind person who helped me out many times with my wife so I could coach.

I was saddened to hear of the death of Lillian, a high school classmate. Through the years I would periodically visit her at Apple where my niece Gina Lyman was the Activities Director. Gina and her husband Chris were dear friends with Lillian, so I always got up dates on her and could send messages of encouragement to her. Lillian kept her friendship with many high school classmates, and they before, Covid-19, would come to visit and take her out for lunch. She will be missed by many. My deepest sympathy is extended to her family. May she rest in Peace.
