Lila Jean Roegiers, 77 of Bloomington, IN, passed away Saturday, August 2, 2014, at Hearthstone Health Campus. She was born January 17, 1937 in Jasper, MN, to Otto and Dora (Dock) Krapf.

As a married woman and Navy officer's wife, Lila lived in Corpus Christi, TX, Reykjavik, Iceland, Norfolk, VA, Coco Beach, FL, Bremerton, WA and Huntington Beach, CA. Civilian life took her to the Chicago area where she worked for Motorola and a final move to Bloomington, IN where she worked for Edwards Interiors.

Her talents in baking, crafting, decorating, gardening, hosting and sewing were legendary. Lila enjoyed spending time with her family in Minnesota, attending her sons' games and performances, traveling with her husband, playing bridge, doting on her grandchildren and eating a chocolate dessert of some description.
