Oine, Lila Lee (Anderson, Bradley) Lila passed away peacefully on 7th of October, surrounded by family. She is preceded in death by parents Florence, Arthur and step-father, Carl, and husband, Don. Survived by sons, Bradley Nelson, Mark Oine (Terri) and Scott Oine (Jenny); grandchildren, Nicci, Joel, Cammie, Alexandra, Samantha, Magni and Modi and many great grandchildren. Lila led a full life for all of her 98 years. She played violin as a child, riding the street car through Minneapolis to reach her teacher - a story she loved to tell. She was a fine artist and studied drawing and painting, and after completing her scholastic studies, started working in Downtown Minneapolis. She was an elevator operator at the Young Quinlan building, a window dresser for a major department store, and, for a short time, as a fashion illustrator for a major department store. Lila had a long career as a saleswoman at Miltons Dress Shop on 7th Street. Mark and Scott have fond memories of riding in their jammies in the back seat with their Dad to pick Mom up after a long day at work. After raising her sons and retiring from Miltons, Lila and Don enjoyed traveling to the Southwest by car to visit her beloved aunt Dorothy and her uncle George in Scottsdale, AZ. In her later years, more than anything, Lila enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, solving crosswords and cryptoquips, and enjoying popular television shows. She never missed Jeopardy, twice a day, Columbo on Sunday evening, and, of course, Dancing with the Stars! Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, October 11th at 11:00 (10:30 gathering) at Washburn-McReavy Crystal Lake Chapel - 3816 Penn Avenue N. Minneapolis, MN 55412. Memorial donations may be made to the Golden Valley Humane Society. We are encouraging guests to come as you are dress comfortably and cheerfully.
