Tirrill, Mary Olivia “Libby”, age 86, of Nashville, passed away Thursday, June 6, 2019. A Nashville native, Libby graduated from Hillsboro High School . She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 48 years, Willard "Bill" Oakes Tirrill, III, MD who adored her enthusiasm for life, giving heart, and family first attitude. Libby’s involvement with her family, friends, and the community allowed her to fulfill her love of serving others. She exemplified true love by caring for her husband for eighteen years after he suffered a stroke. She was a devoted mother, loving wife, grandmother “Mimi”, and a true follower of Jesus Christ. Her adoration for her numerous friends was evident in how she loved to entertain for them. Libby had a true passion for cooking as seen in her famous annual duck dinner parties. She enjoyed her bridge clubs throughout the years and always looked forward to meeting her class of 1951 Hillsboro monthly lunch group. Her passions were her family, reading, needlepoint, knitting, playing bridge, and entertaining friends. She was a life member of the Nashville Symphony Guild, James K. Polk Association, Sow & Grow Garden Club, Centennial Club and member of Christ Presbyterian Church.

She is survived by her children, Mary Bess Smith (Bubba), Anna Ruth Tirrill, Susan Oakes Tirrill and Willard "Bill" Oakes Tirrill, IV (Stacey); seven grandchildren Susanne Elizabeth Smith, Will Eugene Smith, Olivia Lucille Tirrill, Natalie Marie Tirrill, Ashley Oakes Tirrill, Ella Rose Tirrill, and William Travis Fariss.
