On August 4, Crockett County resident Frances Lilley was shot and killed at her home. Tuesday, her brother spoke about the legacy she left behind. Frances was the oldest of seven children. She graduated from Maury City High School in 1941. A year later, she married Alymer Lilley. They would have celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary on October 31. Bob Vaughn is her brother. “She wanted children but unfortunately they could not have any. So she just took on all of us and not only that but kids in the community that were neighbors. She was very active on the farm, she was active in church, active in American Cancer Society and she was just a community leader,” remembered Vaughn. Outside of her house she enjoyed feeding blue jays that would make daily visits. Frances would walk down a ramp and feed catfish from her lake. According to her brother she did not have an enemy in the world. Vaughn said, “We are just devastated over this but we are realizing things like this can happen so we are trying to go on with our lives and do the best we can. ” Frances is buried at Floyd’s Chapel just a few miles from the home that she loved.
