About the Item

Beautiful double sided watercolor painting of an adobe archway with a tree in the center and desert hills overtaking the background, and a painting of the colorful "Catarina" boat on verso by Lillie. E. Heebner, a Watsonville, Monterey Bay area, California watercolor artist. Signed "L.E. Heebner" bottom right. Unframed. Image: 15"H x 22"W. Lillie (Lil) E. Heebner was guided through life by her creativity. Even at 92, she never felt old, and often said so. She met every situation in life—including death—with ingenuity. Although born in Richmond, Lillie lived in Watsonville all her life. Her father, Frederick H. Hillman, grew up on a strawberry ranch in Pajaro, graduated from Watsonville High School in 1916, and served in France during World War I. He later worked for Martinelli's Apple Cider plant and became foreman. Lillie's mother, Esther C. Hobson, moved as an infant from Bakersfield to Santa Cruz with her family in 1901, when they founded Hobson's Bath House at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Other family members had lived in this region since the 1880s, settling in Soquel and Santa Clara. Lillie graduated from Watsonville High School in 1941, enrolled at Hartnell College in Salinas, and worked as a window dresser at Ford's Department Store during World War II. Invited to a dinner with Fort Ord soldiers as guests, she was introduced to Richard (Dick) Heebner of Oregon City, Oregon. Dick and Lillie met on Christmas and were married Easter Sunday, April 9, 1944, at All Saint's Episcopal Church. They both remained active and devoted members of All Saint's, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary there in 1994. Always blessed with friends, Lillie enjoyed lifelong connections in Watsonville and in La Selva Beach, where the family lived for eight years. She had varied interests, but most enjoyed the arts. In her middle years, Lillie studied watercolor painting with artists George Bowman and Bernie Waymire, and enjoyed her latest classes with Bonni Carver. She sold her artwork as a member of the Pajaro Valley Artist's Association.
