Lillian Bennett


Lillian Rose Bennett, 3, passed away on Sunday, August 17. She was the precious baby girl to her mother Ariel Rebecca Klein and the late Alan Michael Werner Simmons.


 She was born in Harrisburg on August 16, 2011.


 Lily was an energetic little girl who was always so happy and cheerful. She had a wild imagination; she liked to pretend she was helping her daddy work by picking up sticks and riding her bike to “work.” She loved ice cream, the beach, her kitty Pinsy, and she loved to eat. She was known as “Super Lily” because she liked to dress up. She was a precious girl who was full of love for her mommy and daddy and her stuffed toy Rubble. She will be dearly and sadly missed.


 She is survived by her mother Ariel Rebecca Klein; her stepfather Danny Oakes Tarell; her maternal grandmother Donna Hoffman and her husband Ronald Lee Hoffman; her maternal grandfather Robert H. Klein and his wife Janet; paternal grandfather Paul Antal; her aunts and uncles Joshua Klein, Jennifer McDonald, Christopher Buchmoyer, Jennie Tarell Shive, and Reid and Annie Hoffman; and her godparents Matthew Birx and his wife Jackie, and Amanda Ball.


 Funeral services were held on Wednesday, August 20 at Chisuk Emuna Cemetery, 10 34th St., Harrisburg, with Rabbi Akiva Males officiating.
