Lillian Montez Young Mercer, 1928-2021

Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great & Great Great Grandmother, Lillian Montez Young Mercer , went to heaven October 15, 2021. She joins her loving husband, son, parents and those she loved that had passed before. Sadly she passed due to complication from Covid. Lillian, also known as Tez , was born May 4, 1928 to Riley and Molly Young of Alturas, Florida. As a child she ran and played in the orange groves of Lake Garfield. Attended Bartow high school and took her first real job at the Bartow telephone office. She soon met our father, Edwin E Mercer, and would say it was love at first sight for them both. They were married June 6, 1947 and had been married 64 years when our father passed. As Dad was in the Air Force we traveled all over the world before returning to Alturas. They had six children , nine grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. There will be no group memorial service but a moment of prayer will surely be heard! Condolences to family at
