About Lillian A. Davenport
We grew up in a two room house on Peters road in Fairburn, Ga. Seven kids and my mom & dad and sometimes my cousin Jayne would stay with us. We had lots of animals , dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits. you name it. We grew most everything we ate. We didn't have alot of money or store bought things so we had to learn to use our imaginations alot to entertain ourselfves. Even though we didn't have alot of what we would have like to have, God seen to it that we always had what we needed. I think that is what made us the people we are today. You learn that money is not what is important, although we do need it to live. We had an abundant supply of what was most important and that was love for eachother. She was born on April 3rd 1949 just 3 minutes older than her twin sister Vivian, They were inseparable. She met the love of her life Wesley Davenport when she was only 13yrs. old and they got married at age 17. They had a double cermony with her twin sister Vivian and Vivian's first husband at Harmony Grove Baptist Church.in Union City, Ga. She and Wesley later on had four children, Dwayne,(aka Wayne,) Patricia,( aka Tricia,) Jeff, and Vickie. She only had 4 grandchildren when she passed but has now has nine with 2 step grandkids.And she has two great grandchildren and one on it's way. But I'm sure they all know all about her. We make sure of that. God gave Lillian to us for a reason and without her here apart of us is missing and that;'s what makes it so hard to go on. But we do and I feel her beside me everyday . We did not say good bye to her ,,but see ya later.
She loved fishing more than anything else. She could fish from sun up till sun down and we would still have to make her leave. She also loved stock car racing,and Nascar. Her sons and husband raced. She was a great sister to me. I can honesly say I never had a cross word with her as long as she lived. She was always there to help anybody no matter what the situation, no questions asked, except what do you need. I was blessed to have her in my life and I miss her everyday. Her sense of humor, her smile, and comforting words of encourgement,My husband David said to say he misses sitting up all night at Demoney lake laughing and catching carp. She was something else one of a kind. She wasn't feeling good the day she died and had went to the doctor for shortness of breath. Later on that evening she took a walk up to her son Jeff's house to visit with the grandkids. She walked back home later and had supper with her daughter Patricia,son inlaw,Chris, husband and son Dwayne. After eating she sat down to watch TV and it wasn't long until she just passed away right into God's waiting arms.She had a massive heart attack at age 46. Gone way too soon. If she could tell any of us just one more thing it would probably be. I love and miss you all, but don't cry for me I am where I want to be .Here with my Momma & Daddy.And I am always going to be with you living inside your hearts. I hope I have taught you how to give love and receive it too. And live your lives, do what makes you happy, don't take one minute of life for granted.. But if you think life on earth is something you just wait untill you get here. UNBELIEVEABLY AWESOME. See ya Soon!
