Lillian Elstein was my grandmother Vera’s sister. Lally (as she was known) was born in Winnipeg in 1909. She married Conrad Orloff, an actuary, at the age of 20 and had two children, Warren and Carole.
Sadly, Lally and Carole were killed in a car accident in 1940 outside of Kansas City. The following item appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press shortly after the funeral service.
Mother and daughter were buried side by side in the Shaarey Zedek Cemetery, Winnipeg.
On a happier note, I have recently connected with Lillian Orloff Spencer, Warren’s daughter, and I very much look forward to meeting her in person some day.
