Obituary

Miss Lillian Lucille Gilyard was born the 2nd of 5 children to George D. Gilyard and Hilda Davis Gilyard on August 14, 1933. She received her early education in the public schools of Nassau County, FL and was a 1951 graduate of Peck High School in Fernandina Beach. She went on to attend business school at Walker Business College in Jacksonville, graduating after 2 years.

After completing her education, she worked at various jobs around the area before moving to Boston, Massachusetts to work at the Gillette factory. She returned home to help care for her parents and became employed by Morton Thiokol. After the tragedy that happened there, she was employed by Terminal Paper Bag Company where she retired in 1987.

Known by most as “Lucille", she was baptized at an early age at First Baptist Church of Yulee under Rev D.V. Singletary. She was in bible school, BTU and attended Sunday services regularly. Lucille was on the church’s renovation committee. She served as the secretary for District #2, treasurer for Pastor’s Aid, a member of the culinary staff and a diligent participant of Sunday school.

Lucille’s hobbies included reading, plus collecting coins and key chains. She also enjoyed watching westerns, detective shows and game shows. She was often on the phone “catching up” with friends and family.

Lucille was preceded in death by her Parents, Sister–Doris Gilyard Henderson, Brother–Prince Woodbury II and Niece–Sabrina Gilyard.

Lucille entered into her eternal rest on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Baptist Medical Center Downtown Jacksonville. She leaves to cherish loving memories: Son, Kris Anderson; Grandson, Bleu Anderson; Brother, George Gilyard (Amanda); Sisters, Annette Fennell (O’Chester); Fannie M. Gilyard; Nieces and Nephews, Steve White; Yvette Assem; James Henderson Jr (Karen); Prince Woodbury III; Tami Autry (Antonio); An’Gell Hilda Hicks; Chaka Fennell; Great Nieces and Nephews, Antonio Autry Jr; Jamael Autry; Da’Zhaun Hicks; Winston Fennell; Quianna Woodbury; Prince Woodbury IV; Katrina Woodbury; Kendra Woodbury; Quintin Woodbury; Great-great Nieces and Nephews, Rayna, Jamael II (Schon) and Jameson Autry; one aunt, Victoria Davis; Goddaughter, Ava Green; and a host of loving cousins and friends.
