Lily S. Hartman, 87, passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012.
She had been a resident of Roanoke County, Va., prior to moving to Weatherford, Texas, in October 2007. One of Lily’s favorite things to do was planting and tending flowers. Her neighbors in her apartment complex at Mary Court often would stop by and compliment her on her beautiful flower garden. Her other past times included sewing, embroidery, beading and ceramics. Most of the items she made, she gave to others as gifts.
She was preceded in death by the love of her life, her husband of 64 years, James William Hartman.
She is survived by her four children and their spouses, Faye and Bill Amos of Vinton, Va., Deanna and Jim Chambers of Weatherford, Becky and Larry Norris of Graford, Texas, Jim and Ann Hartman of Perry, Fla.; seven grandchildren and their spouses, Anthony and Mary Norris of Arlington, Texas; Mary Catherine and Tad Johnson of Benbrook, Texas, Laura and Ron Goebel of Brock, Texas, Nadia and Greg Heller of Stone Mountain, Ga, Jeremy Hartman of Boston, Mass., Matthew Hartman of Lake City, Fla., and James Dale Chambers of Houston, Texas; six great-grandchildren, Lucas Hill of Millsap, Texas, Casey Johnson of Benbrook, Texas, Jennifer Norris of Arlington, Texas, James William Goebel of Brock, Texas, Mykayla Goebel of Brock, Texas, and Samantha Heller of Stone Mountain, Ga; brothers and sister-in-law, Grover and Florence Sink and Paul Sink, all of Roanoke, Va.
