Lillian F. Rowe, 88, passed away June 5, 2014 in Bellingham. She was born Jan. 11, 1926 in Olean, NY to Edgar O. and Faith (Weber) Miller. Lillian met her husband Earl F. Rowe while roller-skating. They were married in Olean on Nov.1, 1947, and honeymooned at Niagara Falls. They moved to Bellingham when the Mobil Refinery moved from Olean to Ferndale in 1954. Lillian had worked for KVOS television and later the first Bellingham cable company, TeleCable. Lillian was a loving and generous person who always put her family and others first. No one ever left the Rowe’s home hungry or without a “care package,” including the local wildlife. Lillian was a member of the American Legion Post #7 Auxiliary and she supported several local charities. Lillian and Earl took pride in their home and yard but always found time to enjoy roller-skating and dancing together. Lillian is survived by her son Terry (Shelley) Rowe of Ferndale; Grandchildren Vanessa (Seth) Digby, Jonathan (Kristi) Rowe; Great Grandchildren Zach, Ethan, and Aria. She was preceded in death by her husband Earl on Feb. 6, 2014.
