The family will be having a private service on Saturday, August 14, 2021 at Pugh Funeral Home. Mrs. Cecil was the daughter of the late William Roosevelt Green and Rosa Mae Collins Green. She worked several jobs as a seamstress at Bossong, Blue-Gem, Acme-McCrary, Becky's of Asheboro, then for herself where she made drapes and alterations for our community. Her life's ministry was her innate desire to serve others. She served God by the way she conducted her life and her outpouring of love she gave to those she came in contact with. She was labeled by our town a master seamstress and had a passion to serve her community through her work. Lillian was blessed with the spiritual gift of being a giver to others. Lillian was preceded in death by her husband of thirty years Grover Owens until his death in 1976, her second husband Cullen Cecil, her sisters, Mary Green Byrd, Thelma McNeill, Ruby Green Beane, and brother Herbert Ray Green. Surviving are her sister Betty Garren of Asheboro; brother, James A. Green of Asheboro; daughters Jeannie Blankenship of Asheboro, Jo Ann Goble of Asheboro, and Patsy Owens of St. Augustine Florida. Also surviving are seven grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren. This sweet and precious soul who spent her life using her hands to love and serve others; are now at peace being caressed by the God that she adored. Lillian was most vocal and proud about the family she left behind. Lillian's level of gratitude towards her Heavenly Father for hand-picking her family was her highest level of pride and joy.
