Paterson, NJ -
Early in the morning, on Saturday February 3, 2018 while the dew was still on the roses, God strolled through the garden and chose one of his finest, Lillie May Slade and called her to eternal rest.
She was born to the late William O. Slade Sr. and Margaret Brown Slade on July 2, 1945 in Caswell County, NC. Lillie was a graduate of Caswell County High School and shortly after graduation ventured to Paterson, New Jersey, where she resided until her death. She was a Certified Nursing Assistant and recently became a childcare provider.
Lillie was no stranger to hard work. Her greatest desire was to provide for her children and grandchildren. She was full of life and brought joy to the lives of her family and friends. Her smile and laughter will never be forgotten and will be missed by all that knew her.
In addition to her parents, two brothers, James Earl and Willie Henry Slade preceded her in death.
She leaves to cherish her memory; two sons, Timothy Slade of the home and Michael Slade of Pelham, NC; one sister, Wilma Kay Slade of Yanceyville, NC; six brothers, Charles Slade, William O. Slade Jr., Bedford Slade (Annie), Raymond Slade (Judith), Larry Slade (Connie), Darnell Slade (Mary) all of Yanceyville, NC; six grandchildren, three great grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
