Lil Hargrove was born in Glen Cove, Long Island, New York and baptized at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City. She resides in Newport, has five children, twelve grandchildren, and two great granddaughters affectionately named Lillian and Mabel. Lil’s commitment to, and love of, Emmanuel began with her teaching Sunday School. Her undying vitality and vigor have led her to serve on every committee and position here at Emmanuel with the exceptions of Altar Guild and Treasurer. Lil broke ground and became the first female Junior Warden, and later became the first female Senior Warden to serve the Church. Lil’s heartfelt and warm manner makes new and old parishioners have a sense of being welcomed and loved at Emmanuel. Lil was a school nurse/teacher for thirty-one years and presently is a part time employee at Memorial Funeral Home. Currently she also is involved in the grade 2 swim program at Pell School. Lil will serve as Senior Warden to fill a one year term.
