We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Atwater Location
Lily McDow rejoined her heavenly family and gained her wings on July 12, 2022, after 91 years on this earth.
She was one of eight children born to Jonas and Carrie Ellison on November 8, 1930 in Temple, TX. After graduating from high school, Lily became a nurse and supported her husband’s career in the U.S. Air Force. Lawrence preceded her in death. They had four children, Mrs. Elnora Holloway (Gary Holloway), Cincinnati, OH, Mrs. Diane Belcher (Johnny Belcher, Sr.) San Antonio, TX, Dr. Betty Harris (Daryl Harris), San Antonio, TX, and Mr. Kennedy McDow (Atwater, CA). She is also survived by two brothers, nieces, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Lily loved listening to gospel music, tending to her garden, and having an immaculately clean home.
The service for her final resting place is scheduled for 9:30 am, Friday, July 29, 2022, at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery. Words of encouragement can be placed on the funeral home website.
