Lillie  Trussell
Lillie Trussell was born November 3, 1933 in Grant Town, West Virginia to Sterling and Beatrice Hicks and was the second oldest of four children. She was introduced to Jesus Christ at an early age and was a member of Mt. Beulah Baptist Church in Grant Town, WV. She later converted to Catholicism after she moved to Chicago where she became a member of St. Columbanus Church. She graduated from Dunbar High School in Fairmont, WV in 1951. After graduating, she moved to Chicago, IL where she lived with her uncle, Bryant Sanders. She later met and married her late husband, Lamar Trussell, Sr. The loving couple instantly fell in love and soon married October 14, 1952, and to this union, they birthed three children (Rosemary, Lamar, Jr., and Marva). Lillie and Lamar purchased their forever home in 1962 in the city of Chicago and remained married until Lamar went home to be with Jesus in July 1999.
