The Family will have a private burial service to honor the life of Mrs. Lillie Bell Watkins Stembridge of Sparta, GA.
Her Life’s Story
Mrs. Lillie Bell Stembridge was born in Sparta, Georgia, on March 5, 1946, to the parentage of the late Mr. Dee and Mrs. Anna Lou Watkins. She was a graduate of Hancock Central High School. She was reared in Hancock County, and as an adult, she held jobs as a seamstress and a certified nursing assistant. Lillie was baptized at an early age, and later in life, she accepted the call to ministry.
On Wednesday, June 24th, God spoke in a still, small voice and said, “Come home to rest, my good and faithful servant.” Lillie was preceded in death by three brothers and two sisters.
