Lillian “Mrs. Lil” Salvador, 87, of Lake Charles, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home surrounded by her family on Saturday, December 3, 2022.
Mrs. Lil was a native of Oakdale, LA and made Lake Charles her home when she married the love of her life, Edward Salvador, Sr. They were married for 56 years before Edward’s passing, and together, they raised four children. She was an active member of St. Margaret Catholic Church where she proudly served on the Altar Society. She also volunteered as a “Pink Lady” at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital and was a member of the bible study group “Come Lord Jesus”. Mrs. Lil was an amazing cook and enjoyed hosting her family, especially during the holidays. She was known for her loving and gentle heart, willingness to help others, but most of all for being a good listener and friend. Her strong faith in God guided her through life and was an inspiration to her family. She leaves a legacy of unconditional love for all that knew her.
