Lillian Eager Dies At 50
Lillian Patricia Eager, 50, of 30 Evergreen Drive, Kentfield, an active worker with the American Cancer Society, died at her home yesterday after a 14-year battle against cancer.
Throughout her illness, Mrs. Eager assisted others stricken with cancer and on Jan. 26, the Marin County Branch of the American Cancer Society passed a resolution commending her efforts and praised her personal courage.
Mrs. Eager, wife of Stanley J. Eager, a special agent for the U.S. Justice Department, was a native of San Francisco and a 20-year resident of Marin.
For 11 years she was the Marin columnist for the Daily Pacific Builder. She helped organize and became president of Woodland Sponsors, which sponsors children at camp and was a member of Sunnyhills.
Mrs. Eager was also active in Campfire Girls, Ballet Aquacade, and parent-teacher associations at Redwood High and Adeline E. Kent schools.
Surviving are her husband; a daughter, Poppy Eager Dully of Los Angeles; three sisters, June Rasmussen of Belmont, San Mateo County, Shirley Fischer of Larkspur and Gloria Muldoon of Novato, and a brother, Henry Schulken Jr. of San Mateo.
Funeral will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Keaton's Mortuary, San Rafael. Burialwill be at Mount Tamalpais Cemetery, San Rafael.
The family prefers that contributions be to the American Cancer Society or a favorite charity.
