Emblem

Lillian Louise Lenz, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, reunited with the Lord and loved ones on June 18, 2023 at the age of 88. She was born October 8, 1934 in Guadalupe Co., TX to Walter Carl and Frieda Louise Voss Dreibrodt. 

She married Robert Lee Lenz on May 10, 1953, at Friedens Church in Geronimo, TX. They were married for 53 years until his death in 2009. She lived her early life on the farm in Zorn, Texas, and moved to San Antonio where she raised 3 children, Kenneth, Stephen and Sandra with her husband Robert. In 1980, she moved to Houston with her husband and lived there until 2010 when she returned back to her farm house in Zorn. In 2015, she moved in with her daughter Sandra in San Antonio and remained under her care in San Antonio until her death in 2023. 

She will be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, daughter and friend - a loving soul and spirit with a beautiful smile and affectionate nature. She loved music, gardening, polka dancing, oil painting, arts and crafts, working with cattle, her dog Cody, and just being outdoors.  She also loved socializing, going to church and family reunions, shopping, traveling, and spending time with family. She was blessed with the ability to yodel and entertained the audience and students by yodeling at the Dietert School end of school plays in her youth. Her love of farm life was reflected in her showing of cattle at many shows of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, active involvement in the Future Farmers of America (FFA), and three consecutive titles as FFA Sweetheart.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband Robert Lee Lenz, her parents Walter and Frieda Dreibrodt, sister Ruby Schaefer and husband Leslie, sister Mildred Krause and husband Kermit, brothers Weldon and Freddie Dreibrodt, as well as Robert’s parents, Martin and Thelka Lenz, brother Dudley and sister Shirley.
