Born in 1942, Mrs. Tillotson was the daughter of the late Howard Taft and Mallie Taylor Cook. She was a hard-working and dedicated employee of Trion, GKN, and later Ingersoll-Rand, where she retired. She was extremely talented and creative, enjoyed a variety of hobbies, and was known for her caring and generous spirit. She attended Emmanuel Baptist Church until her health made it difficult for her to attend.
