playing bingo and cards with her sisters.
She leaves cherished memories to her loving partner for life, Willie Little of the home; her wonderful son, Michael (Eileen) Tillery of Clemmons, NC; two beautiful daughters, Vicky Pemberton and Jackie Gordon both of High Point; her twelve much loved grandchildren; her unforgettable sisters, Bernice Lyons of Battleboro, NC, Francis Hawkins of Washington, DC and Shirley (Minister Bobby) Sawyer of High Point; a beloved daughter-in-law, Janice Washington Tillery of High Point; also a host of great grandchildren, nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
