Aman, Lillian “Lil” Clark Mrs. – Obituary

Richland, Oregon

Lillian Aman, 63, a longtime Richland resident, died May 9, 2004, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.

Her memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Richland Christian Church. Gordon Bond will officiate. After the service, friends are invited to join the family for a potluck at the Richland Christian Church.

Lil, as she liked to be called, was born July 14, 1940, in the small farming town of Holloway, Minn., to Melvin F. “Ty” and Alice N. Clark. When she was a young girl, her parents moved to San Diego to find work, but she always remained a small-town farm girl.

In 1964 she met her soul mate and best friend, Curtis J. Aman. They were married in San Diego on July 8, 1965. In 1969, they moved to Oregon, first living on the coast and then moving to Richland in 1983.

She worked for Pine Eagle Co-op until it closed, and for Baker City Co-op Supply until she retired because of a back injury.

Lil loved the outdoors, especially fishing and camping on the Brownlee and Oxbow pools. When relaxing, she enjoyed crocheting and knitting. When she was with her family and friends she enjoyed playing board games and card games.

Lil loved life, her family and her God. She was an excellent wife, mother and friend. Lil will be deeply missed by all those who knew her and especially by her husband and family.

Survivors include her husband, Curt; a daughter and three sons and their spouses, Rick and Lyn Zick of Mountain Home, Idaho, Kimberly Chandler and her fiance, Lenny Weber, of Cove, Jeff and Susan Zick of Myrtle Point, and Curt and Colleen Aman of Emmett, Idaho; nine grandchildren, Joshua and Tai Chandler, Richard and Jason Zick, Shona and Jane Zick, and Amanda, Tabitha and Alex Aman; one great-grandchild, Seth Chandler; her mother, Alice N. Clark of San Diego; sisters, Michelle Johnston and her husband, Kevin, of San Diego, Juanita Wong and her husband, Mike, of Santee, Calif., and Melveen Quiroz of Lancaster, Calif.; one niece, four nephews and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her father, Melvin “Ty” Clark; a brother-in-law, Dennis Quiroz; and a nephew, Shawn LaVigne.
