Published 11:22 am Thursday, September 19, 2019
On the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2019, Lillie Mozelle House of Oxford died peacefully in her sleep and entered Heaven’s gates. Known affectionately as “Tillie” by all that knew her, she was born on January 18, 1942, to the late Lee Roy and Lena White of Denmark, Miss.
Please join us for a celebration of her life as we lay her to rest with graveside services at Warren Cemetery in the Hurricane community on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019, at 11 a.m. Tutor Memorial Funeral Home of Pontotoc is in charge of arrangements.
Tillie was preceded in death by her life-long partner and loving husband, James Clinton House. Her last days here were made more peaceful knowing that the two of them would soon be reunited. Never blessed with children of their own, they spent decades raising and loving many nieces and nephews. For those years we are forever thankful.
She spent her youthful years hunting and fishing with her family, and found joy in cooking meals for every one that graced her doors. She had a life-long love affair with cuss words, country music, Folgers coffee, Little Debbie snack cakes, and Garrett snuff…. a day wasn’t complete without all of those.
Tillie is survived by her brother, Max White, of Oxford; sister, Sarah, of West Plains, Mo.; nephew, Steve House, of Ecru, Miss.; niece, Jennifer Wolverton, of Horseshoe Bend, Ar.;, and grandchildren Joshua Edwards and Christopher Edwards, of Oxford, Elisha Edwards of Cherokee Village, Ar., Dustin Watts, of Water Valley, Miss., and Caitlyn Watts, of Jackson, Tenn.
The family wishes to thank everyone who cared for and visited her during her final years, most especially the staff at Oxford Health and Rehab.
