Lillian Figlar


Lillian Figlar, age 93, of Wayne, died peacefully at home on Monday, July 17, 2017.

She was born and raised in Wallington and lived for many years in Clifton before moving to Wayne in 2003.

Lillian was a member of St. Clare Church in Clifton until she moved to Wayne, and joined the parish family at Our Lady of the Valley Church.

As a young woman, Lillian loved to roller skate and it was at the roller skating rink in Passaic that she met Stephen Figlar, the love of her life. She became his wife in October, 1943 and their marriage lasted 68 years. Lillian had worked in the electronics field at Kearfott, Litton and ITT. When she retired, Stephen taught her to play golf and together they enjoyed many rounds of golf at the Passaic County Golf Course as well as at various courses they came across while vacationing. Two sets of golf clubs were always kept in the car’s trunk, just in case they came upon a desirable course. They also enjoyed many golf outings at Wyndham, NY with friends.

Lillian even had a ‘hole in one’ at the county course!    

She also enjoyed playing golf with the Women’s Golf Club at the Passaic County Golf Course, bowling on the Women’s Bowling Team at T-Bowl Lanes in Wayne, playing bingo with the ladies at the Golden Age Circle of Wayne, and being a member of the Wayne Elks Auxiliary.

Lillian was predeceased by her beloved husband Stephen in 2012. She is survived by her
Four children: Marilyn Borowinski and husband Roger of Wayne, Patricia Jacukiewicz and husband Ziggy of Lakewood, Diane Koenig and husband Warren of Andover, and Gregory Figlar and wife Cynthia of Clifton; seven cherished grandchildren: Jennifer Warren, Dawn Mc Cune, Kim Rodman, Justin Borowinski, Karen Jacukiewicz, Tara Flach, and Marissa Figlar; and eleven adored great-grandchildren: Derek, Madison, Isabelle and Dylan Borowinski, Aiden and Liam Warren, Jonathan, Daniel, and Nicholas Rodman, and Elsa and Landon Flach.

Lillian will be forever missed but will always remain in our hearts.

A Memorial Mass will take place on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, beginning 11:00 AM at Our Lady of the Valley R.C. Church, 630 Valley Road, Wayne. Please meet directly at the church.
