Lillian E. (Giusti) Luciano, 92, of League City, TX, went peacefully to heaven on Monday, September 8, 2008, at Cornerstone Hospital in Webster, TX. She was born on January 24, 1916, in Victoria, Michigan. She retired from Walgreens in Galveston, TX, after more than 25 years of service. Lillie loved people and when she asked, “May I help you?” she meant it. Her fellow employees always used to say, “Give it to Lillie.” She could sell anything.

Survivors include her daughter, Ginger (Luciano) Nelson and husband, John, of League City; grandson, John W. Nelson and wife, Yuka, of Houston; brother, Adolph (Babe) Giusti, Jr., of Galveston; dearest and closest friends whom she loved a lot, Courtney Smart and wife, Beverle, of Pearland; and Sunni Glover and husband, Brandon, of League City.
