She married Theron Mendenhall Webster in the Logan LDS Temple November 4, 1927. They lived in Idaho and California and moved to American Fork, Utah in May of 1942.

Lillian was an avid artist who delighted in teaching others the elements of art she had learned form other art instructors. She loved to learn new art techniques and enjoyed teaching young and old. She was a member of the Women's Council of Provo whose purpose was to cooperate in furthering charitable, literary and educational activities; and to inform and educate in the fields of art, literature, music, community affairs and the home arts.
