Shirley Mae Lilley

Shirley Mae Lilley

Shirley Mae Lilley passed away on April 30, 2006. Shirley was born in Glendale, California on New Year's Eve, 1932. For the past six years, she has lived in Ashland, Oregon.

Shirley also called Lompoc, California her home for many years as she raised her children and helped run the family's insurance and real estate business. She worked alongside her soul mate and husband, Robert C. Lilley for more than 15 years, before he passed away.

Shirley entertained like Martha, only better. She was a fabulous cook, and her 4th of July parties were legendary. She was a good friend to many, including several of her high school chums and so many other life-long friends.

She dearly loved her seven grandchildren: Rebecca and Tracey Lilley; Briana and Kellan Brasil; and Damiana, Coriander, and Bradley J. Lilley.

Shirley is survived by her son and daughter in-law, Brad and Tara Lilley, La Conchita, California; daughter and son-in-law, Allyson and Steve Holt, Ashland, Oregon; and sister, Beverly Wright of Greenfield, Arizona.

Her husband, Robert C. Lilley, her son, Christopher Allen Lilley, and her stepson, Robert B. Lilley, preceded Shirley in death.

A celebration of Shirley's life will take place on Saturday, May 6 at 11:30 a.m. in the recreation room of the Donald E. Lewis Retirement Apartments, 500 YMCA Way, Ashland, Oregon. A memorial service will also take place at the Lompoc Cemetery on Saturday, June 17 at 11:00 a.m.

Memorial contributions can be made in honor of Shirley, to the American Diabetes Foundation. Arrangements by Litwiller Simonsen Funeral Home.
