Arbuckle Methodist treasurer retires
Lily Ditaranto recently retired after being treasurer of the Arbuckle United Methodist Church for 13 years.
A thank-you reception will be held following the service on April 1.
She wrote checks and kept the general ledger for the church and was involved in providing forms required by the county and the state, as well as singing soprano in the church choir.
Ditaranto has been asked to remain on the church board as chairperson of the finance committee.
Born in Arbuckle, Dilaranto moved to Illinois and later to Massachusetts, returning to the Arbuckle area when her husband retired in 1984.
She loves to garden and has two dogs who are always ready to go for a walk.
She also paints beautiful oil pictures of floral and landscapes, some of which are on display in the social hall of the church. She often exhibits her works at art shows.
