Lillie was born in Alva, Oklahoma on August 30, 1925 and graduated from Oklahoma University. She married Alonzo (Al) Taylor Corbin and was a devoted parent to their three children (Teresa, Pam, and Eugene). Lillie worked as a librarian in the public schools of Lewisville, Texas while completing her certification in elementary education at Texas Women’s University. She then taught second grade from 1971 to 1991 in the Lewisville Public School District. Lillie and Al retired in Winnsboro and Lillie returned to Dallas to be near her children after his passing.
Lillie volunteered in countless ways at the Lewisville Bible Church, First Baptist Church of Winnsboro, and Lakeside Baptist Church (now Lake Pointe – White Rock) along with the Center of Hope in Dallas, Texas, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, and the State Fair of Texas. Beyond her service as a dedicated educator and volunteer, Lillie was known for the generosity and care she extended to everyone she knew.
Lillie is survived by her sister Norma Jean Love, daughter Teresa A Corbin, and son Eugene Alonzo Corbin along with four grandchildren, George A Ashmore, Jr., Amy M Ashmore, Taylor A Dannelley, Ella Lilliemae Corbin-Stockman, and five great grandchildren. She will be missed greatly, but her love lives on through her family and the many lives she touched with her extraordinary kindness.
