The former Lillie Mae Bragg was born on January 31, 1950, in Osceola, Arkansas, the daughter of James Earl and Liza (Burrage) Bragg.


In 1972 she moved from Osceola to Rock Island, Illinois. And became employed at the Rock Island Arsenal, where she worked for many years. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Her grandchildren and great-grandson were her pride and joy. Lillie had a passion for cooking and dancing, she was good at both. She had a joking spirit and loved to laugh.


Lillie Mae is survived by her beloved daughter, Victoria Bell and her fiancé, William Newman, of Independence, Missouri; two grandsons, Xavier D. Clark and Javon D. Whiteside, Jr.; grand-daughter, Javin N. Whiteside; great-grandson, Ashton J. Whiteside; siblings, Mary Randolph of Rock Island, Helen (Melvin) Fountain of Michigan, Wilbert Earl (Annie) Bragg of Arkansas, Johnny Bragg of Rock Island, Dr. Eddie (Margaret) Bragg of Michigan, and Deacon Edward Charles (Sandra) Bragg of Tennessee; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, James Earl Bragg and Liza Bragg-Dickerson; siblings, Mary Lee Bragg and Fred Bragg; and Victor Hale, who was Victoria’s father and Lillie Mae’s close friend.
