Thelma Lilly

April 26, 1918 — January 1, 2015

Beloved mother and grandmother, Thelma Beatrice Lilly, passed away in her sleep on January 1, 2015, at the age of 96. She was born on April 26, 1918 in Lewis County, KY. She met her husband, John Raymond Lilly (deceased), in Hinton, WV, and wed on November 4, 1940 in Catlettsburg, KY. She resided in Ironton, Ohio, from 1962 until the time of her death.
Thelma loved to read, visit with family, enjoy nature and, when in better health, paint, garden, create crafts and collect and restore dolls. She was kind, gentle, wise, beautiful inside and out. Her home was a place of warmth and love. Thelma lit up the lives of all who were blessed enough to have known her and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
Thelma was preceded in death by her husband, John Raymond Lilly; son, John Reginald Lilly; and eight siblings.
Left to cherish her memory are two children: Becky (John) Hodgson and Randall (Gena) Lilly, six grandchildren: Robert Lilly, Randy (Tammy) Lilly, Tammy (Mark) Bollinger, Ryan Lilly, Christy (Logan) Jergens and Jessica Lilly; seven great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren, among other relatives and friends.
Services will be at 1:00 PM on Sunday, January 4, 2015 at the Ronald Meadows Funeral Parlors with Pastor Robbie Merritt officiating. Burial will follow at Restwood Memorial Gardens near Hinton. Friends and family may call from 11:00 AM until time of service at the funeral parlors.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to Community Hospice, 1480 Carter Avenue, Ashland, KY 41101.
