On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, Marjorie Marie Lyles passed away at the age of 87 on her ranch in Freer, Texas. Marie was born on September 19, 1931 in Alice, Texas to Andrew and Barnette Harvill. For most of her life she lived on a ranch outside of Freer, where her family settled in 1919.

Marie graduated salutatorian of Freer High School. On December 24, 1947, she married Clifton Lyles. They raised a son, Steven, and a daughter, Cheryl. Marie loved ranch life, cattle work, hunting, and daily rides around the ranch.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents, her daughter, Cheryl Lyles Smith, and granddaughter, Mariah Linn Smith.
