Lillian Lane St. John, 98, our beloved Mom, Grandmommy and GG, passed away peacefully at home on July 13, 2022. She was born September 14, 1923 in Bainbridge, Georgia to Joel Chapman Lane and Agnes Moore Lane. Lillian grew up in Bainbridge and was a southern girl to her core. After graduation from business school, Lillian worked for the commander of the air base in Carrabelle, Florida where she met the love of her life, Edward M. (Buck) St. John on February 7, 1943. They married 3 months later on May 9, 1943. Buck was deployed to WWII in Europe, and their first daughter, Peggy, was born in Bainbridge while Buck was overseas. After the war, they moved to Texas where they made their home for the next 78 years. They lived in Corsicana, (where their son, Edward was born), Garland, Greenville, Sherman (where their daughter, Susan was born), Wichita Falls and Richardson - and were actively involved in church and community in each town. Lillian loved her church, bridge clubs, Stitch and Bitch group, Circle, the Texas Reelers Square Dance Club, Network of Community Ministries, Meals on Wheels, Austin College, Mo Ranch, Lighthouse for the Blind, sponsoring refugee families, making sandwiches for Austin Street Shelter, Jordan Speith, summer trips to the beach, sharing her famous fudge pie with friends, watching golf, and her family. Family and church were the cornerstones of Lillian’s life.
