Obituary of Lillian V. (Koury) Deeb
Lillian V. Koury Deeb, 94, of Timber Lane, Glenmont went to be with her Lord Jesus at home on Monday, July 8, 2019 surrounded by her family. Born in Boston, she was the daughter of the late Peter and Mary Koury and wife of the late Alfred A. Deeb, Sr.
Lillian loved her church family and had a deep passion for prayer, worship, and the Word of God. She was an adventurous woman who loved to travel, especially to the ocean with her family. She had a great sense of humor and took every opportunity to enjoy life, even boogie boarding at the age of 85. Survivors include her 7 children Alfred Jr. (Roseann), Mary Mayo (Michael), Charles (Elaine), Robert (Joann), Sally Deeb, Alma Dudas (George), Laurie Gericke (David), two cherished brothers George and Peter Koury and brother-in-law Harry Hakeem all of Albuquerque, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Lillian was a devoted wife, mother and a cherished “Sittou” to her 24 grandchildren and “Sitti” to her 46 (plus) great-grandchildren. Her love for her family was only surpassed by her love for the Lord. She was predeceased by her siblings Linda Hakeem, Lorraine Mogab, Naseeb and Joseph Koury, daughter-in-law Lynn Deeb, and great-granddaughter Cecelia Trimble.
Funeral service will be held Friday at 10:00 a.m. at Legacy Church, 282 Elsmere Avenue in Delmar, NY 12054. Relatives and friends may call at the church Thursday from 4-7 p.m.
