Deborah Kay Lilley

Deborah Kay Lilley, 61, of La Porte was born on October 17, 1957 in Marietta, Georgia and passed away on Friday, August 2, 2019.  She was preceded in death by her father, Larry Autrey and sister, Phyllis Robinson.  Left to cherish her memory are her devoted husband, Gary Lilley; sons, Brian Lilley and wife, Hailey, and Todd Lilley; mother, Connie Ellis Autrey and grandchild, Beaux William Lilley as well as a host of other family and friends. 

Deborah was a lover of life and enjoyed spending time with her family.  She enjoyed sitting around her kitchen table having heart to heart “talks”.  Being at the ballpark and watching all her kids play ball was a pastime Deborah greatly enjoyed.  She loved going on cruises with family and friends.  She loved her new grandson, Beaux, more than anything in this world.  Deborah will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
