My Mrs. Lillie,
Lillie Odencie Willis Lanier was born April 10th 1936 in Tahlequa, Oklahoma. She departed this earth on February,14th 2017 at the age of 81 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
She is proceeded in death by her husband Audrey Ernest Lanier and her eight brothers and sisters. She is survived by her eight children, Brenda Dasher, Audrey Jennings-Hudgings, Doris Lanier Wilson,Velvet Lanier, Rocky Lanier, Catherine Grybko, Travis Lanier and Lescia Owens, her two brothers Ted Willis and Delbert Willis and her two sisters, Mandy Gilman and Ann Surls.
She is also survived by, her 30 Grandchildren and 35 Great-Grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Lillie was a Christian woman who loved God, her family, and her friends. One word to describe her is "Selfless". Mrs. Lillie was an exceptional cook who hardly ever used a recipe. One of her favorite things was exchanging recipes with family and friends. She loved old country and gospel songs, with the occasional "shoulder jigg" which she declared her own. For everyone that had the opportunity to meet her, we want you to know you were touched by an angel. To the ones that did not, may you one day do so in heaven. We all have a departure from this earth and hers has come. She has left her earthly home that she shared with all of us. For now its been a time to short and her final resting place is done, God has called on her and an Angel has come home.
