Obituary of Lillian Joyce Greenwood
Lillian Joyce Rider Greenwood, 81, of Conroe, Texas went home to be with her Lord on March 9, 2023. She was born in Houston, Texas on November 29, 1941, to Gus Rider and Margaret Mooneyham Rider. She grew up in the Houston area, attending Jefferson Davis High School, and soon met and married Ernest “Sonny” Greenwood. They had three sons, Raymond Earl, Craig Marshall and Mark Anthony Greenwood, and raised their family in the suburbs of north Houston. Lillian is preceded in death by her parents, Gus and Margaret Rider; sons, Raymond and Mark Greenwood, ex-husband Ernest “Sonny” Greenwood, and sisters Betty Lackey and Mary Jo Terrill. Lillian is survived by son, Craig Greenwood, grandchildren, Raymond Greenwood and wife Candice, Billy Greenwood, Dylan Greenwood and Lyndsey Ballard, great grandchildren Chelsey, Zander, Bailey, Nicky, Madilyn, and Alexandria, and great great grandchildren Asher, Esemay and Axton. In addition, Lillian is survived by sisters Cecile Dotson and husband Charles, Louise Brown, and Barbara Middleton and husband Herbie; also, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Lill, as she was fondly known by her family and friends, was a God loving person, baptized in Jesus’ name. She took great pride and joy in spending time with her family, especially her children and grandchildren. Lill loved the Lord, and this shown through in the many Christian songs she wrote in her early years. She was a gifted musician, playing both piano and guitar, and shared her love for Christian and Country music performing for others. Singing and playing at family gatherings was something that truly gave her joy. Her creative side also came to life in the beautiful still life pictures that she loved to paint on canvas. Lill was a hairstylist for many years, delighting all her customers. She had many talents and will be greatly missed by all. We will carry her in our hearts forever. Services will be held, Tuesday March 21, 2023, at 2:00 pm, with visitation at 1:00 pm. David Fauss will officiate.
