Lillie was a faithful member of the True Holiness Church International of Ebro, under the leadership of Pastor Louis D. Brown. She was a gentle spirited person and always had a beautiful smile on her face. There was never a sad or unhappy demeanor when she was in the room. Lillie was a business owner, operating a cleaning business, Crystal Clean. She was a dynamic cook and enjoyed serving the people of the community whenever she was needed.
