Tribute & Message From The Family

Liliana Vila Gehrmann, age 84, passed away peacefully Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at The Enclave senior living facility, where she resided. She was born on September 6, 1935 in San Jose, Costa Rica, to parents Franz Kurt Gehrmann and Irma Gehrmann Gutierrez. After completing high school, she moved to New York and worked as a legal secretary. It was there that she met the love of her life, Agustin Vila, and they were married in 1959. They had 5 children Emil, Alex, Gary, Denise and Karyn.

After losing her husband to a battle with lung cancer, she began working in retail. She worked at Dillard's Department Store until she retired.

Liliana truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; chatting with family and friends over coffee and pastries, and visiting with her nieces, nephews and extended family. She had a warm heart and a gift for being sincerely genuine that positively touched all who knew her. She was a believer in the Lord and attended mass regularly.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Kurt and Irma Gehrmann, her husband, Agustin Vila, and her son, Alex Vila. Liliana is survived by her brothers Max Gehrmann and wife Rina, Eric Gehrmann and wife Linda, Richard Gehrmann and wife Dolores, and sister Ana Mercedes Gehrmann; her children Emil Vila and wife Martha, Gary Vila and partner Sean, Denise Arellano and husband Augusto, and Karyn Vila and her 8 grandchildren, as well as many other family members.

Services are being held at Porter Loring North on Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020 at 1:30pm.
