Lillie Lindsey was the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman; strong, virtuous, selfless, loving, and full of wisdom. Lillie lived and walked with a great level of dignity, class, and grace. Whatever she put her hands to do for Jesus was always done with a touch of humility and excellence. Lillie was a devout Christian not only in words but in deeds and she was not just a hearer of God's Word but truly was a doer of His Word. Whenever she prayed, her prayers were earnest, heartfelt, and sincere. Lillie was a living testimony of the goodness and faithfulness of God, and she would be quick to share one of many testimonies with anyone who would listen.
There is a sense of joy that Lillie Lindsey has finished the race and now is in the presence of the Lord whom she served faithfully and dedicated her life to. As Lillie reached the final days of her life here on earth, her only concern was that she had lived a life pleasing to the Lord. Lillie has left a great legacy of faith, prayer, and love for her family, friends, and the great hosts of individuals whose lives have been marked forever by this great woman of God. May the Light of Jesus that shined so brightly in her continue to warm all of our hearts.
