Lil was a pitcher by trade and a mighty good one at that. She once pitched a game that last in a 19 inning tie! Not only did she take her regular turn on the mound but she would also pitch in relief.
Retired Deputy Lillian Faralla passed away July 26, 2019, three days short of her 95th birthday. Lillian joined the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department on November 29, 1953 and retired on July 30, 1976 from Technical Services Transportation.
Lillian had a colorful life before the Sheriff’s Dept, including serving in the Coast Guard during WW II and she was a member of the Women’s All American Girls Professional Baseball League. She is named in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
There will be no services.
