"Lillie N. Hedges 1911-2006

Lillie N. Hedges went to be with the Lord Dec. 11, 2006, at the Tucson Medical Center. She was born in Miles, Texas, to S.A. and Charity King on March 14, 1911. She married J. R. Hedges in 1934. In 1940, J.R. and Lillie moved to the Elfrida area where they farmed for 40 years.

Lillie was cheerful and fun-loving. She loved being around people, and was always the life of the party; even in her 90s, she was spry and ready to go somewhere every chance she got. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Lillie was preceded in death by her husband, J.R., her parents, and one grandchild. Survivors include her sons, John Hedges, Jr., of Eagle River, Alaska, and Dale A. Hedges of Elfrida; three grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild. Lillie also leaves behind numerous cousins in California, New Mexico, Texas and Arizona.

The service was Saturday, Dec. 16th at 2 p.m., at the Elfrida Baptist Church, followed by burial at the McNeal Cemetery. A reception at the Elfrida Baptist Church followed burial.

Pallbearers were Gale Hedges, Brian Hedges, Tim Hedges, Jacob Hedges, Jim McWilliams and Larry Waters. Honorary pallbearers are Ernie White, James Grizzle, Vernie Taylor and Clifford Taylor.

Entrusted to the care of Westlawn Chapel, Willcox, Arizona."
