ANNE LORENA LILLIE
Anne Lorena Lillie of Alexandria, Virginia, passed away peacefully on November 4, 2012 at the Halquist Memorial Inpatient Center in Arlington, Virginia. She was 90 years old.

Anne was an active member of Lincolnia United Methodist Church for more than fifty years and served in multiple capacities at the church's district and conference levels.
Well known for her positive outlook on life, she always believed that if she couldn't say something nice it was best to say nothing at all.
