On Thursday, May 10, 2018, the Angels from Heaven opened their wings and welcomed Marie Agnes Tillman into the Family of Peace.

Marie Agnes Tillman was born to the proud parents of Luke and Florence Metoyer on July 27, 1927, in Alexandria, Louisiana.

Marie left Alexandria, Louisiana after graduation from high school and moved to Richmond, California with her oldest sister, Florence Jones. Soon afterward, she started working for Oppenheimer Casing Co. as a Casing Inspector in San Francisco, California until the company shut down and she retired. Later, she decided to return to work and was employed by American Nursing Association as a Homecare Provider where she cared for Mrs. Hanson until Mrs. Hanson passed and Marie retired for good.

Marie loved to cook, she belonged to several organizations, and she loved to travel with her husband, Dallas Tillman. Her family and friends will miss her but her spirit will always dwell in us.

Marie is preceded in death by her parents Luke and Florence Metoyer, one brother and seven sisters.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband Dallas Tillman; two daughters, Cynthia Rasberry, Cheryl DeBose; and one son, Joseph Darryl DeBose; eight grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren; two surviving sisters, Genevieve Milligan of Vacaville, California and Evelyn Elie of Alexandria, Louisiana; as well as, a host of numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members and friends.

“Miss Me”

Miss me…but let me go,
When I come to the end
Of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a
Gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me…a little,
But not too long
And not with your head
Bowed low
Remember the love that we
Once shared.
Miss me…but let me go

For this is a journey that we all
Must take and each much go alone.
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know and
Bury your sorrow in doing good deeds.
Miss me…but let me go.
