Lillian Asberry

by Steve Hale

A beautiful saint went to be with the Lord last week as Lillian Asberry passed from this world to a far better one. She was hospitable, charitable, and a wonderful example of a loving wife. Few people I’ve observed through the years loved each other as much as brother John Lee and sister Lillian.

From V.B.S., to Bible School, to her kitchen table, sister Lillian was a relentless teacher of children. She taught them the Bible, gardening, homemaking, and cooking. You could not leave her delicious kitchen without something to eat. The Asberrys were down-to-earth, humble, and serving. Finally, after some years, they are together again. While we weep for ourselves, we rejoice with them ( Revelation 14-.13)
