Tillie was an amazing woman in every aspect of her life. I was so blessed to know her and call her my friend. My deepest sympathy to all her family members. Tillie was so loved and will be missed but she would want you to think about all the memories and happy times you shared. Tillie is in peace now and I can picture her and Howard laughing together again!!! Fondly, Lynn Krill

Dearest Tillie,
Words will never express the gifts you gave me during the "short" eight years of our visits together. You taught me the true meaning of life, love and caring. You shared in the joys of my family and celebrated the birth of my granddaughters, along with always selflessly worrying about how hard I worked, and my safety and health. Paul shared in our happy times together, and took pride in helping you with little home repairs, and cherished sharing life stories with you. You were truly an inspiration to us both.

Thursdays... bringing chicken and ice cream, among other favorites, and just "chatting", will never be the same without you, Tillie. I will be forever grateful for out time together, and will miss you sorely. It's time for your happiness now, though. Run free, without worry, because you are safe now with God, where you so deserve to be.
Love you forever,
Mary Beth Martin

With our heartfelt sympathies, Mary Beth and Paul
