Lillie Cagle Obituary

Lillie Ruth Cagle, of Wills Point, TX, passed away on Monday,  November 27, 2023, in Tyler, Texas, at the age of 72. Her private graveside services will be held at White Rose Cemetery, with visitation scheduled for 6:00-8:00 PM on Friday, December 1, 2023, at Hiett’s LyBrand Funeral Home in Wills Point.

Lillie was born on February 17, 1951, in Robstown, TX, to Elmer Joseph Wall and Lula Lee Brown Wall. Raised in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, she graduated from high school and embarked on a life filled with love, family, and service.

In 1968, Lillie married her soulmate, James Austin Cagle, Sr., in Dallas. Their journey led them to Duncanville before settling in Wills Point in 1982. Lillie's impact on her community was profound, especially during her years as a dedicated teacher at the Little Children's Depot in Wills Point (now known as Country Meadow Day School). Her commitment to nurturing young minds was a testament to her compassionate spirit.

Lillie, a woman of Catholic faith, found joy in simple pleasures. She loved sewing, working on puzzles, and immersing herself in books. Her collection of dolls was a testament to her appreciation for craftsmanship and beauty. Lillie's favorite pastimes included watching John Wayne movies and indulging in love stories. Above all, she found fulfillment in cooking for her family and caring for her grandchildren.

Lillie is preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Lula Wall, her husband, James Austin Cagle, Sr., and her son, James Austin Cagle, Jr. She is survived by her son, Joey Cagle, and wife Sherry of Wills Point, TX; daughter, Angela Anette Cagle of Plano, TX; sister, Marie “Santos” Wall of Dallas, TX; grandchildren, Jed “Orbey” Cagle, Spencer “Dutch” Austin Cagle, Ryan Wagner, and Matthew Bunce, along with five great-grandchildren.
