September 16, 1936 – January 22, 2018
On September 16, 1936, Lucindia Butler was born to the
late Willie and Mable Butler in Arp, Texas. She was one of
fourteen siblings. She graduated from Arp Industrial High
School, where she was a member of the basketball team.

she became a member of Liberty Baptist Church in Troup,
Texas, under the leadership of Reverend J.J. Johnson.
On June 10, 1957, she united in Holy Matrimony with Joe
Hollis Tillman in Arp, Texas. Together they began their life

She worked for Harris County Appraisal District, where she
retired after 25 years. She was an avid fan and participant

holidays and Sunday dinners.
