Nancy Lee Melton Tillman was born on April 28, 1944 in Phoenix Arizona to James Arthur Melton and Emma Amelia Verrue Melton. Nancy passed away unexpectedly at home the morning of December 31, 2019. Visitation will be held at Strode Funeral Home Friday, noon – 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 1-6 p.m. The memorial service will be at the Oilton First Baptist Church at 11:00 a.m. Monday, January 6, 2020. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of the arrangements.
Nancy met Lee Roy Tillman at Arizona Western University when she mistook him for his brother Bill with whom she was working on a project at the time. Nancy married Lee Roy Tillman in Yuma, Arizona, June 12, 1965. They had three children Carol Lee Tillman Hall, Cheryl Ann Tillman, and Michele Irene Tillman who she loved fiercely. She was the story teller of family history and gave her children that love as well.
In 1976, the family moved to Glencoe, Oklahoma. Nancy worked as substitute teacher at Glencoe Public School, Brown’s Tire Distributing, and went back to school in her 60’s for a Bachelor of Science to become a Drug and Alcohol Counselor. Her greatest joy was when she was helping other people and was always generous with others. She would carry spare coats in the winter or buy one for someone if they needed one, and dropped off water to her favorite thrift store workers in the summer.
Nancy was known for her quick wit and humor. She loved her time as a Drug and Alcohol Counselor even though she came to it later in life. So in honor of her life if you must raise a glass please make sure it’s non-alcoholic.
Nancy is proceeded in the death by her father, James Arthur Melton, mother, Emma Amelia Verrue Melton, sister Eve Martha Watson, and sister Phyllis Meade.
Nancy is survived by her husband, Lee Roy Tillman, sister, Sylvia Mabrey, brother James Alvin Melton, daughters, Carol Lee Hall, Cheryl Ann Tillman, and Michele Irene Tillman, grandchildren Samantha Lee Hall Hillock and Samuel Garrett Hall, and great granddaughter Aspen Renee Hillock.
