Several picklers attended Lila Bock’s Celebration Of Life yesterday, she having passed away at the age of 84. Lila played pickleball with us for several years into her early 80s. She loved our game, having been a ardent tennis player for many years prior. Asthma caught up with her in recent years and she had to give up pickleball, BUT, she then formed a table tennis group with two tables in the basement of her house and played regularly! She led an active lifestyle and died as she lived, climbing the steps at the YMCA to attend a group class.
A quote from Albert Einstein sums up her philosophy on life: “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”.
And she was always a joy to play with on the courts!
