To know Lillie was to love her. She loved chocolate, giving massages, writing poetry, singing hymns and Country & Western songs. She was a loving and faithful wife, a devoted and proud mother & grandmother. She cared greatly about her many friends. She will forever be remembered for her healing hands of massage. Her elaborately decorated cards, envelopes, & notes of encouragement will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to receive them.
When Daddy left this world in 1997, Mom was never the same. They had been married 55 years. They are back together and we know they are now happy again. We will miss our Mom as we have missed our Daddy every day.
