Lillie was part of my life since age 5, in approximately 1962, when my father was stationed at Lackland AFB, and we became neighbors. Mary and Janice, the first friends I made and retained the duration of my life. I will miss our cards and emails, but know that she and Bob, are forever in my heart. Distance and time will never change that.

Lilly was a very special person. She always had a smile and kind words for everyone. I believe that God puts special Angels here on earth, to help take care of his children. Lilly Mae, was and is, one of God's Angels. I love her very much

Last Sunday morning, I never imagined that it would be the last time that I would get to see Lillie. I always looked for her smiling face at the ladies' Sunday morning coffee and then sat with her and daughter Janice at the early morning service. Frequently I'd play Mexican train dominoes with her at the church seniors' Monday games. It's strange to think about going to Zion Lutheran Church without seeing Lillie there. She contributed so much of her time and talents to the church and her family and friends. I'll truly miss Lillie.

Lillie was considered family to our family after Kendall and Eric were married. We were always greeted with a warm hug and big smile! She was a devoted Mother and Grandmother and great grandmother and a God loving woman with tremendous faith. She was like a second Mother to Kendall as they lived together for many years when Kendall was a little girl. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her but our loss is her gain and she is in heaven now and we will one day meet again.

My heart is deeply saddened by Lillie's passing. I only knew Lillie for less then a year. I met her at Zions Crafty Bunch. Every since that first meeting, she always greeted me at church with a big smile!! She made me feel so welcome. I will truly miss Lillie. What a sweet, loving person. Hugs and prayers go out to your loving family. She will be greatly missed.

Lillie was a very sweet lady.
I only knew her about 4 years.
I played dominoes with her at Zion church. She used to help me play during the game. It was our secret. Praying for the family for their loss. May Lillie RIP.
She surely will be missed.
