bullet  General Notes:

Lillian, or Bub as she was commonly known in her younger years, attended the Manning Tree Road State School from 1920 to 1928 and the Swinburne Girls Technical College from 1929 to 1933. She was Head Prefect there in 1932.
After leaving school she worked at Walkers Stores in Glenferrie Road, Glenferrie doing upholstery and making drapes, curtains and bedspreads.
During the war years, between 1942 and 1945, she worked as a Commonwealth Peace Officer at the Maribyrnong Explosives Factory, where she was an artillery officer. After the war she went to New Zealand for 18 months and worked in Auckland doing soft furnishings. She lived there with her sister, Bert (Roberta). After returning to Australia she continued to work in soft furnishings at a store in Carnegie and lived nearby.
In August 1952 Lillian moved to Tenterfield with George Cardwell. George was married to her sister, Pat, but they had formed a relationship and decided to build a life together. They settled on a farm in Tenterfield, New South Wales and had two children.
In 1973 they moved to Noosa, Queensland and eventually bought a home in Viewland Drive. They stayed there until 1993 when they moved to Samara Place, Cooloola Estate, Noosa Heads.
Toby (as she was known) was a passionate and successful bowls player. She was a life member of the Noosa Bowls Club, an honour bestowed upon her for her dedication, commitment and contribution to the club over almost thirty years. A bowling green there is named in her honour.
She is remembered by her children as a wonderful, resourceful mother who hand-made beautiful clothes, managed the farm, and prepared fabulous meals and cakes, often from things grown in her own garden.


Lillian married Alexander George Cardwell, son of Robert George Cardwell and Lillian Camelion Henrietta Lord, on 17 Jun 1944 in Deepdene, Victoria, Australia. (Alexander George Cardwell was born on 7 May 1916 in Tallangatta, Victoria, Australia and died on 20 Feb 2006 in Noosa Heads, Queensland, Australia.)
