Lily was born in Arlee, Montana, on Sept. 23, 2003. From a very young age, Lily had an unbounded love for animals. She raised chickens, cows, pigs, and goats. And adored her horses and pet rats. Lily was fearless on a horse, earning her the much-deserved nickname “Wild Lily.”
Her smile was infectious and her laughter resonant. Lily recently received the “Student of the Month” award from Grand County Middle School for tolerance, which was a very important value that Lily didn’t see enough of in the world.
Lily is survived by her mother, Molly McClish; her father, Tye McClish; her brother, Rowan Antonuccio; her grandparents, Sherry Mathson, Jim Mathson and Johnnie Sue Hutchison, Stuart Evers, Helen Antonuccio, Bonnie Corrado, Sondra and Dale Spradlin, and Roger Stevenson; her aunts and uncles, Jen Evers, J.R. and Britni Mathson, Justin Mathson, and Stephanie Pierce; and her extended family, Marc Antonuccio and Amanda Domenick.
A memorial service for Lily was held at the Grand Center in Moab on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 4 p.m.
