Lorna M. Tillery

Lorna M. Tillery, 73, passed away peacefully at her home in Prescott Valley, Arizona on March 26, 2015. Beloved sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother - Lorna's most important loves were her family.

Lorna and her husband Thomas H. Tillery operated their business in California for 23 years before relocating to Prescott in 1990. In 2008, both Lorna and Tom moved back to California where she was preceded in death by her husband Thomas, in December 2008. In 2014, Lorna relocated to Prescott Valley and lived with her daughter Brenda and son Mitchell until her passing, one day after her 73rd birthday.

Lorna will be sadly missed, but her lessons she taught us about devotion to family, hard work, kindness to others and integrity will remain with us forever. She was a loving, caring and generous person to family, friends and strangers. She will be remembered for her love of animals, art and nature. Lorna had a green thumb and loved taking care of her flowers, plants and trees.

She is survived by her four children Brenda L. Tillery, Pamela A. Looney, Mitchell R. Tillery, (Thomas J. Tillery, estranged); 10 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
