Lillie Mae Robinson was born July 28, 1926, in LaCrosse, Florida in Alachua County. Lillie was born to the late William Pope and the Late Manurva Rutha (Carter) Pope. Lillie was 94 when she died on March 11, 2021, of Alzheimer-related issues. Ms. Lillie was vibrant and full of life and many adored her. She loved her family dearly and enjoyed being around them immensely. Although she didn't attend church often, she had a great personal relationship with God. Oftentimes, Lillie was found by her children praying, interceding, and speaking in tongues in the wee hours of the night. Her favorite activity was doing word search puzzle books. Frequently, she would work 4 books at a time. She would compete with family and friends to see who would win by completing theirs first. She always won; she was just that good. Shy of her 88th birthday, she was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and given a 3-4 month life expectancy. However, she survived another 6 and 3/4 years after that report. She died at her daughter Theresa's home of issues related to Alzheimer's disease. Respectfully, God had and has the final sayso. Gulfside Hospice Sapphire Team provided premium in-home service to Lillie until her death. Her family meant everything to her and she died in comfort and peace knowing she was loved. Lillie is survived by her children; Frank Pope (Wilma) of Lacoochee, FL, Ella Ruth Collins (Willie) of Trilby, FL, Anita Knight (Noel) of Twin Lakes, FL, Lilli Theresa Jordan (Walter) of Zephyrhills, FL, and Slynnia Sanders (Willie) of New York; 11 grandchildren; and a host of other sorrowing relatives and friends.
