Lillian Barbara Daley

April 14, 1924 ~ February 6, 2021 (age 96)


Middlesex- Lillian Barbara Daley, of Middlesex, NJ passed away on February 6th, 2021. 

Lillian Daley was born on April 14th, 1924 in Dunellen, NJ to John and Magdalena Kotyo. She lived in Plainfield, NJ and resided most of her life in Middlesex, NJ. Lillian was often called Mrs. Lil by the many children that she babysat, watched, and raised while working as a caregiver at Moppet and Little Scholars. She worked as a lunch lady at Pierce Elementary School while her children attended.

Lillian loved going on bus trips to play the penny slots in Atlantic City and The Sands at Bethlehem with her inseparable daughter, Patricia. She was a practicing Roman Catholic and a devout member at Our Lady of Mount Virgin (OLMV) church in Middlesex. She loved and was very proud of her grandchildren and she was always one to remember everyone’s birthday and anniversaries. Her bedside table was never void of a large print find-a-word book and she would never miss the Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune hour.

Lillian Daley is predeceased by her husband Maurice “Red” Daley and son, William Daley, daughter Patricia Daley, and daughter-in-law Deborah Daley. She is survived by her son Thomas Daley and wife Anne Daley, son Kevin Daley, and son Robert Daley and wife Michelle Daley, and daughter-in-law Suzanne Daley. She is also survived by 3 grandchildren: Shannon Daley-McCarthy, Kelly Daley, and Skylar Daley and 2 great-grandchildren Harper and Killian McCarthy. Lillian was the friendly face with an infectious laugh that will be sadly missed by all. Rest in peace, Mrs. Lil.
