Lucy “Lillian” (Robinson) Pierce was born February 5, 1929 in the Ridge Community of Leon County, Texas. Her parents were William Bryan & Ouida (Ward) Robinson. She lived most of her life in Centerville and was a devout Christian and faithful member of First Baptist Church in Centerville. Anyone who knew Lillian knew that she loved to cook and bake food for others and was always available to help a person in need. Although, she never asked for help doing so, nor did she want it. She was perfectly capable of doing it herself! Lillian was a homemaker her whole life and loved taking care of her family and extended family. She also enjoyed working in her flower beds and gardening.

Lillian was preceded in death by both of her parents; husband, Billy Pierce; brothers, Jack W., Ersel P., Elton Ray, Marshall Cotton, Stanley & Lindberg Robinson; sister, Ruth Pierce and granddaughter, Joni Hammock.

Surviving family members include sons, Tommy Pierce of Centerville & Bobby Pierce (Sharon) of Centerville; daughter, Patricia Hammock (Eddie) of Centerville; sister, Lyndall Hale of Bryan; grandchildren, Chris Pierce (Shalesha); Bonnie Swindell (Justin), Drew Pierce, Sarah Stone (Ryan) and Jeremy Hammock (Morgan), as well as, great-grandchildren, Clayton Stone, Carter Stone, Asa Pierce, Kaede Thomas & Lonnie Hammock. Lillian is also survived by her beloved border collie, Tippy.
