Lillie Jeannette Flemming was the fourth child born to the late Tebe Murray and Lillie (Neal) Murray on January 11, 1929. She was preceded in death by three siblings: Essie Rushin, Charlie Murray, Sr. and Lelia Scott.
She received her early educational training in the public school in Marion County graduating high school at the age of 16. Following graduation she enrolled at Albany State College but due to the illness of her mother she had to return home to take care of her. After returning home she met and married the love of her life the late John Wesley Flemming, Sr. and to this union they were blessed with two beautiful children.
Lillie was a member of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Buena Vista, Georgia, where she served in the Church Choir, Missionary Ministry, and Mother Board. She was also a founding member of the Top Twenty Club. During her life here she was known for her amazing cakes while she enjoyed basketball, fishing and cooking big meals. Not a week went by where she was baking a cake for someone or some event. Her love for children made her job at the Marion County Public School System a joy. She worked faithfully as a Secretary with the school system until she retired. She will be missed but she is celebrating with God and her family in her heavenly robe.
She leaves her legacy and a lifetime of memories to her two children, Gwendolyn Satcher, Decatur, Georgia and John Wesley Flemming, Jr. (Michelle) Columbus, Georgia; four grandchildren, Nichole Burkett, Lithonia. Georgia, Eryn Satcher, Decatur, Georgia Shantel Flemming, California, Sabrina Flemming, Atlanta, Georgia; and three great grandchildren, Janelle, Kayla, and James Wesley; along with a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
