Lilian VanSteenberghe of Somerset, NJ passed away peacefully Sunday morning at the age of 92 at Foothill Acres Nursing Home in Hillsborough, NJ. Born Lilian Sobers in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Lilian married Paul VanSteenberghe in 1947. Eventually they settled in Berkeley Heights, NJ, where they raised their family. They were married for 58 years until Paul passed away in 2005.

Lilian worked as a secretary in Manhattan, then later as a librarian for the Berkeley Heights school system. She loved to host large gatherings at her home, especially by the pool. Lilian was the life of every party. She was generous with her love and affection, and she will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

Lilian is survived by her two daughters Paula Pfriender and Janis VanSteenberghe, her son-in-law Robert Pfriender, her three adoring grandsons Eric, Bryan, and Matthew, and her great-granddaughter Abigail.
