Obituary of Lillian Terese Huibregtse


Lillian was born at home on June 25, 1931 to Frank and Margarite Herrera. Her childhood home was in Los Angeles, California. Upon graduating High School, Lillian worked as a teller at Security Pacific Bank   (SPB), where she met her future husband Gene Lowell Huibregtse, in the Hollywood branch.  Gene was sent off to serve in the Korean war. Lillian, sister Doris, and brother Donald bought a house in Burbank where they lived together until she married. Gene and Lillian were married November 10, 1951.


Gene and Lillian moved to La Crescenta, after he was discharged from the Army.  Two sons, Dean and Mark were born, and Lillian became a stay at home mom.  They lived on Mayfield Avenue and on Francis Street until they moved to Palmdale.  This is when their third son, Calvin was born.  Lillian was an active member of the Palmdale Presbyterian Church, and involved with the Children’s Ministry.  She loved working with children.


Later, Gene was offered an executive position at the head office of SPB in Los Angeles, so the family moved to Glendale.  Gene was busy with the bank, and she continued with the Children’s Ministry in the Glendale Presbyterian Church.


In 1986, Gene was promoted again and sent to the Corona Del Mar branch of SPB, where Gene, Lillian, and Calvin moved into a new home.   Lillian and her family became members of Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church, and Lillian was involved in church activities. She became the head of the committee for the Annual Missionary Rummage sale.


Now that their boys were grown, Lillian and Gene traveled the world.  They went to Carmel, CA once a year. They even went to Washington D.C. for President Nixon’s Inaugural Ball. Lillian and Gene enjoyed working together on family history, and searched their ancestors back to the days of Napoleon, and the Iberian Tribe in Northern Spain.  Lillian also enjoyed doing mosaic art, singing, going out to eat, and playing golf.


Gene proceeded Lillian into heaven in June 2002. On February 21, 2024, Lillian is finally home with Jesus.  Lillian is survived by her three sons and daughter-in-law’s; Dean and Robin, Mark and Denise, Calvin and Norma, plus six grandchildren and their spouses, and five greatgrandchildren.

The families are:

Dean & Robin, Lauren & Killian, Dayna & Earl, & John                     

Mark & Denise, Danielle & James, Nathan & Kori, Keira, Natalie, & Kenzie   

Calvin & Norma, Phillip & Evie, Luke & Victoria, & Lilith


Lillian knew the Lord as her personal Lord and Savior. She always pointed us to have a personal relationship with the Lord. Later in life she always shared Bible scriptures. Two of her favorite scriptures were:


Psalm 3:4-7 “Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.


Proverbs 4:23 “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”


Our Mother was a wonderful Mom and a fun person to be around. We loved her very much and she will be missed by all of us.  Looking forward to seeing her in Heaven.
