Lila was one the kindest ladies that I ever worked with at Sumter County Dept. f Social Services. She always work to help folks needing help with services offered. She always listened to understand them and help to apply for services or refer them where they needed to go to get help they needed. She was a Christian Mother, who loved helping her family, friends and co-workers. Se will be sadly missed by all. She was the kindest person and most caring. My condolences to her husband, children and other family members. Her memories you have of her; she will be with always wishing the best.
