Lillian F. MacNaughton

( January 9, 2003 ) Lillian F. MacNaughton, a 35-year resident of Larchmont, died on January 2, 2003 at the age of 81, with her family at her side.

She was born on March 26, 1921 in Hoboken, New Jersey to Max and Frieda Feichtner, who had immigrated to the United States from Austria and
Switzerland respectively. She graduated from A.J. Demarest High School in
Hoboken and attended Hunter College. She was married to the late William G. MacNaughton, and lived in Yonkers, the Buffalo area, Chappaqua,
Pleasantville and Indianapolis before settling in Larchmont.

Lillian worked for Consolidated Edison in New York for 22 years as a manager of customer correspondence, writing instructor and editor of Con Ed’s “ Spotlight” newsletter addressed to senior citizens. She retired from Con
Ed in 1991 at age 70. Earlier she worked in customer correspondence for Reader’s Digest in Pleasantville, RCA Record Club in Indianapolis and The Metropolitan Museum in New York. The mayor of Orchard Park, the Buffalo suburb, presented her with a key to the city in 1960, in recognition of her work reporting Orchard Park news for the Buffalo Evening News. Lillian was a long time member of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church before joining the Larchmont Avenue Church. After her retirement from Con Ed, Lillian taught reading in White Plains through a school volunteers program for elementary school students.

Lillian is survived by her daughter Ruth and son-in-law Harold Spencer of Oakland,CA and her daughters Laura of New York and Amy of Seattle.
