Lillie Mae Todd

February 28, 1952 ~ March 29, 2021 (age 69)

Obituary

As beautiful as a rose to see, was her life she lived so gracefully.  She made things precious by her touch ; her selfless love lives on in each of us.  The petals of her life fell one by one; each a gift of her heart till there were none.  Yet her radiance blooms once again in fields of glory with no end.

On February 28, 1952, Lillie Mae Bell was born in Linden, Alabama, to her parents, Joe Brown Bell Sr. and Lillie Bell Walls-Bell. Lillie had nine siblings.   Han nah Mae, Florence, Joe, Addie, Josie, Dorthey, Susie, Dennis, Diane, and Mary. As Lillie grew up in the Alabama, she graduated from Linden High School in 1969. After graduation, she decided to relocate to a couple different states due to the harsh realities of the south where there was no real future.

Lillie was previously married, when she decided to move to Denver Colorado. After meeting Johnny Hightower Jr., she decided that was the man for her. They were married on October 1, 1999 in Aurora, Colorado.  To this union, two boys, Travadus and Johnard were born.  Johnny preceded her in death on December 25, 2002.

She was the life of the party, especially if some Johnnie Taylor music started to play.  The one thing everybody did know is her family came FIRST in her life to include her boys and her grandchildren. The life lessons she taught to many people is what people cherished to this day. The young people Lillie touched still have major respect for her. What an awesome woman, she was and as she would say " The Best to ever do it ". She will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known this kind and wonderful woman.  To know Lillie was to love her.
