Margaret Elizabeth Gambrell (Sister)

Published 12:00 am Thursday, December 9, 2004

God blessed Amos and Irene Tillery with a daughter name Margaret on November 28, 1942. God shed light on Margaret’s battle with cancer on December 5, 2004, when he called her home to be with Him. She died surrounded by her daughter and family members.

She was a resident of Suffolk, before and after travels to Brooklyn, New York and Baltimore, Maryland. Margaret was a faithful member of Macedonia AME Church under the leadership of Pastor Charles Harvin.

She was a dedicated employee of Lipton Tea for 18 years before retiring; she was a phenomenal woman to her family and soldier for the Lord. She was one of the matriarchs of her family even during her illness.
