Lillian Roberta Hollick


Lillian Roberta Hollick, 64, of Sandy Hook, died at the home she made and loved in Sandy Hook, April 27, with her loving family by her side. Born in Bridgeport, on January 28, 1945, she was the daughter of Michael and Esther Hollick.

Before her career in the legal field she was an entrepreneur, owning and managing a fire extinguisher service company, a towing business, and an auto body shop while raising two sons and garnering a reputation for a mean kitchen. She was an accomplished cook. She taught herself the intricacies of a dozen cultures culinary traditions, and developed the secret to making the world’s most dangerous brownies. Her life was a rich tapestry of experience and friendship and she is mourned by many dozen of surrogate sons she gathered throughout her life. They call her “Momz.”

Survivors include her beloved sons, George Oldroyd of Alabaster, Ala., and Sean Oldroyd of Bridgeport.
