Lillian M. Kauppi

Lillian Mae (Aldinger) Kauppi, age 88, died peacefully of natural causes on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019. 

Lillian was a strong, independent woman who raised eight kids and ran a successful vending machine business for many years. Even after retirement, Lillian found it hard to take it easy; she continued to work part-time and as a volunteer well into her eighties.

Lillian is survived by seven children: Valerie (Greg), Becky (Tom), Steven (Mary), Deb (Lance), Janet (Tom), David (Darla), and Dan (Ann); by more than two dozen grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and by four siblings: Delores, Delphine, Pat (Valdy), and Tom (Marilyn). She was preceded in death by daughter Judy and grandchildren Michelle, Ricky and Jack.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, Aug. 10, at 2 p.m. in the second-floor chapel at GracePointe Commons in Cambridge, Minn., where Lillian was a happy member of The Commons community for several years. A meal will follow.
