Heart Filled Words For
Lillian (Magee) Plummer
A family is like a body. When a family
loses a loved one, it is as if they have lost
one of their limbs. The contribution
that was made by the family member that
was lost can never be replaced.
That person is gone. What that person has
brought to the family is gone. Is it important
for the family to take time to grieve for
this loss? Doing so is a matter of respect
for the relative that has passed.
It is also a step that the family must take to
acknowledge its loss. If we do not take the time
to honor the lost relative, it is as if we are
saying that they didn't matter to us.
We shall take the time to honor the loss of our
Lillian because she did matter to us.
She was not only my mother, she was my best friend!
For me; she was truly GODS’ GREATESS GIFT
that I will always sorrowfully miss.
Love You Mom!
Rest In Peace

She was raised and partially educated in Bogalusa, La. She was the dedicated spouse of 45 years to lifelong friend Charlie L. Plummer (US Army Retired), who also preceded her in death.

She lived in the Copperas Cove and Killeen community for 35 years after many travels state side and abroad during her husband’s U.S. Army career. She was the epitome of excellence and dedication in everything she did, an ideal mother, wife, student, family member, and friend.
Survivors include her son, Timothy A. MaGee of Killen, Texas; her brother, Lloyd L. Magee of Las Vegas, NV., as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins who she touched with her wisdom, grace, and endless generosity.
