Melissa Justice Lilly, of Camden, formerly of Logan, West Virginia, wife of Richard Dean Lilly, Sr. passed away after a sudden illness on July 8, 2014, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Born on October 26, 1970, in Holden, West Viriginia, she was the daughter of Terry and Ruby Estep Robinson.
She is survived by her husband of Camden; son, Joseph Justice, Jr., of Logan; her parents of Chapmanville; two sisters, Tonya R. Tackett (Steve) and Terri R. Fields (Michael), and their children; two step-sons, Ricky D. Lilly of Logan and Ryan A. Lilly of Cross Lanes; three step-grandchildren, Ali Ferrell of Chapmanville, Declan Lilly of Pecks Mill and Phoenix Lilly of Logan, all in West Virginia; and a host of friends and extended family.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Joseph Herbert and Alma White Robinson, and William and Kathleen Estep.
Her smile would light the room and warm your heart. Her laugh brought us great joy, and her beautiful eyes were the windows of a loving heart. She will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
A funeral mass will be held in Camden at a later date, and she will be blessed and interceded for at Saint Jude’s Catholic Church in Sumter today at 7 a.m.
