Lillie was born June 17, 1940, in Lincoln County, TN to the late Leonard and Gertrude Sumners Tallman. In her early years she worked for Serbin Manufacturing, but it was her job as part of the custodial staff at Blanche School that brought her joy. Mrs. Sue was loved by both the students and staff, and she loved them in return. She was a member of the Mable Hill Baptist Church, and she made many trips with the Samaritan’s Purse mission work. Lillie passed away April 19, 2023, at Huntsville Hospital in Huntsville, AL.
