Services for Lillian Mattina, 96, of Port Hueneme, Calif., a former Buffalo resident and a retired department store employee, were held today in Greco Funeral Home, Kenmore. Entombment was in Mount Calvary Cemetery, Cheektowaga.
Miss Mattina, a native of Sicily, died Sept. 7, 2001, at her residence after a three-month illness.
She came to Buffalo with her family when she was 5. She began her career in sales in an old-line department store and was manager of the children's department at the Wm. Hengerer department store when she retired.
An accomplished pianist, she loved classical music and opera. She moved from Buffalo to Ventura County, Calif., 14 years ago.
Survivors include two brothers, John of Oxnard, Calif., and Joseph of Florida.
