Lillian Stanley Hunt Buchhold, 95, of Orlando, Florida, died Tuesday, October 24, 2017, at Westminster Towers Health Center where she had been a resident since 2010. Born in Whiteville, NC, August 11, 1922, to Julian P. and Alice Jolly Stanley, Lillian was the fourth of nine siblings and the longest lived. She married Lemuel Harold Hunt in 1938 and they moved to Florida in 1943. They had two sons, John Roger and Lemuel Russell (who died in infancy), and a daughter, Sibyl Rose. Lem and Lillian were married for sixty-one years until his death in 2000.

She was a homemaker and later held secretarial positions at Golden Rule Press in Orlando, and at First Baptist Church, Winter Garden, where she served for nineteen years during the pastorate of Dr. K. Fay DeSha. Lillian was a talented seamstress, quilter and crafter and loved sharing her work with family and friends. She was a devoted follower of Jesus Christ and taught ladies’ Sunday School classes as long as she was able. In 2006, she married Julius Buchhold. Lillian was loving and generous to family and friends alike.

She is survived by her son John (Barbara), her daughter Sibyl Hull (William), five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 11, 10 AM, at First Baptist Church, Winter Garden, with Rev. William Hull officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Westminster Communities Foundation, 125 56th Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL. 33705, or Oakland Nature Preserve, 747 Machete Trail, Oakland, FL 34760.

    God's orchestration of life events never cease to amaze me. Sibyl, we shared a first pregnancy calendar. Laura Gail and Will were "womb" friends. Tomorrow, November 11th, is Eleanor Lynne's sixteenth birthday! Ellie is Laura Gail's daughter! To remember my granddaughter's birthday will be to remember you and your mother. Call me sentimental, but this is how a poet's mind works. "life and death upon one tether, running beautiful together" (Coffin)
    Blessings as you continue to live for the praise of God's glory.

    My Lillian as I always called,you, you will always be remembered and greatly missed. Thank you for loving me and my family. I still have the Christmas Angel I proudly display every Christmas and think of you after 20+yrs. This year will be even more bittersweet as I am certain God called one of His earthly Angels home. I will miss you terribly. Please say hello to my Grandpa Sam and Grandmother Becky for me.

    I pray that we find comfort from the words of Charles Spurgeon as we praise God that Aunt Lillian is now home.
    "God is our portion;
    Christ our companion,
    The Holy Spirit our Comforter,
    Earth our lodge,
    And heaven our home"

    Praise be to God!!!

    Our Mother will be missed but never forgotten and all that she taught her children and grandchildren will make their lives more productive and God centered.
