“Her Journey”

Don’t think of her as gone away her journeys just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one. 

And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched, for nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much.

She departed this life on Sunday, October 8, 2023, at a local hospital in Covington, Louisiana.

Lilia was united in holy matrimony to James A Martin Sr. On June 20, 1969, to this union four children were born.  Tonya Ramsey (Edward); James, A Martin, Jr.; Nicole Yolanda Abram (Curtis); Sedonia Thompson.
