Mary Evelyn (Tilley) Lile

December 5, 1942 ~ June 16, 2020 (age 77)


My wife, Mary Evelyn (Tilley) Lile went to God the 16th of June 2020 after passing in her sleep at our home.  She was born to Charlie Floyd Tilley and Irene (Proctor) Tilley on the 5th of December 1942 at 16th Street & S. Cleveland.  She and I were married 60 blessing-filled years. She was the perfect wife and did everything for me to make me happy.  Married life is not a 50/50 deal, each has to give 100%, for it to last. I told her recently that I was so happy and satisfied that it scared me.  I was worried something bad would happen. It did, GOD took my devoted wife.  She was a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, sister, and aunt known as “GG” to her great-grandkids. She was preceded in death by her mother & father, Charley Floyd Tilly & Irene (Proctor) Tilly; her baby sister, Patricia Jo (Tilley) Owen; her nephew, Jerry Crow; her niece, Janice crow; her mother-in-law & father-in-law, Joe & Reba Lile, and her sister-in-law, Mary Helen (Zerrenner) Lile.

Survivors are, her son, Dean Eldon Lile; she worshiped him in every way. Her grandsons, Andrew Lile, Blake Lile, & Pete Lile; her great-grandsons, Colton Lile & Shawn Lile; her brothers-in-law, Harold Lile & Dale Lile; her sister-in-law, Charlene Lile; her sisters and brothers-in-law, Charlot (Tilley) Metz & husband, David, Martha (Tilley) Crow & husband, Jerry; her nephews, Jimmy Dale Lile, Joe Harold Lile, Cary Metz & Danny Metz; her nieces, Amanda Metz, Connie (Crow), Rhonda (Lile) Reynaud, Trella (Lile) Sparks, Richelle (Lile) Carlisle; and many other family & friends.

Me, her husband who she made entirely happy with her love & devotion.  We were together 61 years & married 60 years. I knew her for all of her life. She traveled the world with me and most of our U.S. States.  My wife suffered & hurt very bad for the last 10 weeks.  God bless her and keep her, my lovely wife.  God help me thru this please.
