Roy Tenison passed away May 5, 2009 with Lillian right by his side.

Lillian is survived by her sister Grace Urquidi.

Lillan loved arts and crafts, ceramics, and was an amazing seamstress and could sew anything.

She was strong in her faith and a devoted Jehovah Witness.

Lillian’s greatest joy in life was being an amazing wife, mother, and homemaker. She was your number one supporter, confident, teacher, best friend, entertainer, open ear, storyteller, and shoulder to cry on. We will all miss her infectious giggle.

Lillian will be greatly missed!

She will be remembered by all who met her for sweet, loving, supportive, and the greatest mom you could ask for!

We will always be the 3 Musketeers!!!
