KITTERY, Maine — Did you wait in line at Lil’s window?

For more than 20 years, thousands of locals and tourists alike certainly did, standing patiently at Bob’s Clam Hut in Kittery to give their order to Lillian Mangos — even if few were waiting at other windows.

Mangos, 87, died peacefully in her sleep Sunday, leaving behind a legacy of hard work, kindness and liveliness, said Bob’s manager Patricia Barrigar.

“Lil was a big part of the memories of Bob’s,” she said. “People going on vacation would stop by every year, just to be waited on by her.”

That might explain why 197 people commented and another 530 people liked the Facebook entry on Bob’s Clam Hut about her passing.
