Lillian Rollins

March 28, 1931 — December 4, 2021

Lillian was born March 28th, 1931 in Brainerd, MN to Venda and Bertha (Poul) Kral. Lillian grew up in Meadowbrook Township in southern Cass County where she attended local country schools. Lillian graduated from Motley High School in 1949 as Valedictorian of her class.

Lillian married Allen J. Rollins on July 25th, 1949 and they remained married until his death in June of 2012. Lillian and Allen built their farmstead in Meadowbrook Township and at one point, resided in Alabama when Allen was stationed at Fort McClellan.

Lillian wore many hats and had many roles in the community as well as with her family. Some of the more professional titles she held included clerk of the Motley School Board, lookout for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources fire towers, Sunday School teacher, income tax preparer and census taker.

Lillian was proud of these roles but valued being a wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother the most. Lillian valued her friends dearly and always had coffee and lunch ready for anyone who stopped. Lillian had many hobbies that included gardening, deer hunting, snowmobiling, baking and working on the farm.

Lillian passed away on December 4th, 2021 at the age of 90. Ever being thankful for life and family, Lillian was asked this Thanksgiving what she was most thankful for. Her response? Everything.

Lillian was preceded in death by her father; Venda, mother; Bertha and husband; Allen. Lillian is survived by her son; Scott (Darlene) Rollins of Motley, grandson; Andrew Rollins of Motley and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
