Lilia Elaine Garrett, 68 of Gore OK joined Our Lord and savior on the evening of March 20th, 2021. Lilia was born on April 9th,1952 in Muskogee, OK. Lilia was preceded in death by her mother Mary Louise Cason and her father JC Cason, her sister Susan Huff, her mother and father-in-law Bud and Melvina Garrett, her son Jamie Garrett, her beloved daughter Shauna Miller-Quinn, and countless other friends and extended family. There would never be enough room on a piece of paper for the amount of words it would take to describe Lilia. If there ever was a single word to describe Lilia it would be...strong. Never one to take no for an answer, a trait she passed on to her children, she wouldn't let anything stop her from getting what she wanted. Especially if it was for her family. She loved her game shows and cooking shows. She always copied down recipes from books, shows, or magazines. You would find them stashed everywhere along with pictures of her family. She couldn't have enough pictures of her family. On the same note, you won't find hardly any pictures of her. The only thing that would rival the love for her family, was her love for Elvis. However, she loved Dale, the love of her life more than anything in the world. From the time they met, when she was 24, they became soul mates and married February 12, 1977 and would go on to create a wonderful and beautiful life for the next forty-four years. Creating an incredible family and loving home for their children.
