Lillie Callie McNeil was born to James Melvin McNeil and Jessie Rose Craig at Drain, Oregon. She had the following siblings:

Brinton Wallace McNeil (eldest)
Elsie McNeil
James McNeil (Jamie)
Winnie Clare (Clair) McNeil (No Census Record)
Clyde W. McNeil
Hubert B. McNeil
Agnes V. McNeil (Quillen)

Early on (mid-1920's) Lily married Leslie McCluster Morford; however, the marriage was not a success. Leslie later died on October 5, 1959.

Lillie's second marriage was November 18, 1937, to Hugh Merril Reece. He passed away on April 6, 1961, leaving her a widow.

On June 20, 1964, she married one last time to her third husband Fred Lane. For a second time Lillie was left a widow on June 9, 1971.

Lillie had the following children:

Violet Roberta Morford (Vici)
Marion Francis Morford

Donald Ray Reece

She also raised her daughter's son who was called Victor Lee Reece.

Mrs. Lane requested no funeral service.

Because of re-marriage Lillie was not placed in the (husband and wife) shared marker with her former husband Hugh Merril Reece but instead her ashes were scattered nearby at this picturesque cemetery.
