Lillian F. Hulst, age 99, of Crookston, MN, passed away on Saturday, February 5, 2022, at the Benedictine Living Community of Crookston. Lillian was born Lillian Florine Pierce in Euclid, MN, October 12, 1922, to Leon and Bertha (Veenstra) Pierce.
Lillian was united in marriage to Albert John Hulst on March 1, 1941. This union was blessed with 5 children. Her beautiful life will be forever cherished by her family and friends. She leaves behind a multitude of loving, and sometimes funny, memories. To know her was to love her, stubborn streak and all!
Lillian held many different types of jobs throughout her lifetime, but her most cherished position was that of Senior Companion to many elderly members of the Crookston community. She loved all of her clients and they loved her equally as much. She took so much pride in being able to help others. Her Christian faith and belief in Jesus Christ carried her through the many losses of loved ones who passed on before her, knowing they would be united again one day.
She is survived by her children: Donna Corbin (Roger) of Crookston, MN, Duane Hulst (Melodi) of Crary, ND, Dale Hulst (Ruth) of Crookston, MN, and Dione Wasness (Ronald) of San Tan Valley, AZ; sister, Lona Schuett of Grand Forks, ND; brother, Robert Pierce (Alice) of Fargo, ND; grandchildren: Scott Corbin, Dustin Hulst, Chad (Barb) Hulst, Brian Hulst, Kristi Hulst, Tammy Drewes (Corey), and Troy Ricord; thirteen great grandchildren; 4 great-great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
