Lillian was born April 14, 1931, in Lometa, TX to H.V. and Jimmie Richards. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Hardin-Simmons University. Lillian spent most of her career working for Santa Fe Railroad as a stenographer and assistant to the traffic superintendent. She was a member of Covenant Presbyterian Church.
Lillian was blessed with a servant’s heart and her joy came from taking care of family and friends. Her days were often spent accompanying friends and family members to doctor’s appointments, cooking meals for loved ones, and performing small tasks for friends just to help them out. She was the most selfless woman, always putting the needs of others before her own. All of her many friends and family members experienced the Lord’s love through Lillian’s words and actions. She was a wonderful example of serving people and loving people the way Christ loved the church. Her presence was comforting and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, H.V. and Jimmie Richards; her brother, Herman Vecy Richards, Jr.; her sister, Edith Beall and her former husband, William G. “Bud” Satterwhite.
