Obituary for Lillian Elizabeth Aurit (Hovind)

Lillian Elizabeth  Aurit (Hovind)
Lillian E. Aurit, age 78, of Janesville, passed away Tuesday evening, September 11, 2018 at her home. She re-joined her husband in Heaven on his birthday!
She was born April 20, 1940 in New Diggings, WI, the daughter of the late Harold & Elizabeth (Kilcoyne) Hovind. On November 28, 1959, she married Norbert L. Aurit at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Benton, WI. He preceded her in death on July 4, 2018.
Lillian loved all animals, but had a special affection for cats, her “kitties.” She loved attending craft shows, and watching classic movies. She especially enjoyed those times when she would go out to eat with her dear friends. Her family meant everything to her, and loved spending as much time as she could with them. Lillian also helped as a housekeeper and cook at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church Rectory while her brother was Pastor. She will be remembered for her support of others, whether it be financial or in prayer, through their endeavors.
Lillian is survived by her 3 sons, Norbert (Leslie) Aurit, of Janesville, Christopher (Jenny) Aurit, of Oshkosh, and Philip (fiancée, Laurie Elliott) Aurit, of Beloit; her 2 daughters, Donna Silva, of Janesville, and Elizabeth (Eric) Jorgensen, of Balsam Lake, WI; her brother, Harold “Bud” Hovind, of Dubuque, IA; her brother-in-law, Bernarr (Ardice) Aurit, of Janesville; her very dear friends, Mary and Clyde Crary, of Janesville; her 12 grandchildren; her 3 great-grandchildren with another expected in February, 2019; and by nieces, nephews, and friends. Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her granddaughter, JoAnn Aurit; her 3 brothers, Francis Conlon, Jim Conlon, and Fr. Philip Conlon; and by her 2 sisters, Darlene Kisting, and Sharon “Sherry” Kreul Tesmer.
A Memorial Mass will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Friday, September 28, 2018 at ST. PATRICK’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 315 Cherry St., with Fr. Timothy Renz officiating. Inurnment will follow in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Friends may call on Friday morning from 10:00 until 11:00 A.M. at the CHURCH.
Lillian’s family would like to extend their sincerest thanks and appreciation to the wonderful staff of Agrace Hospice, to Dr. Shekhani and his team, Dr. Zainer, the entire staff of Mercy Hospital and Mercy Manor, and especially to Julie Finley, Betty Halverson, and Jenny Border, for their loving care, compassion, and support these last few months.
