Lily Isabella Petree

December 14, 2004 — April 19, 2024

Tipton

"You'll always be someone who makes this world a better place to be - not just for those around you but for everyone who's lucky enough to know you" by an author unknown but no better words to describe the impact Lily had on those around. Lily Isabella Petree, born December 14, 2004, the first daughter of Jacob and Jenna Petree. Although her time was cut short, she achieved and touched more people's lives than she could have ever known. Lily's ability to take over the room with ease with her presence was one of her most undeniable and most notable traits. She loved with fierceness. She was quirky. She was goofy. She was bold. 

If you knew Lily from a young age, she wasn't always the force she became. She started off shy, a quiet little girl. She found a passion in horses and that passion lit a fire that could never be put out. Beginning with her love of horses opened up confidence that could never be stifled and a willingness and want to help and protect anyone whom she loved. She was stubborn yet kind. Her passions grew from animals to sports and most recently to caring and loving for the goats she insisted on starting a farm with. Lily's light began to touch all the hearts of the littles of all those who entrusted her with their children when she had the opportunity to work for the local daycare. Lily was a daughter, an amazing sister, a best friend, a role model; she was one of a kind. You could find her in the salon getting her lashes done one day and fishing with her dad or getting up at 5 a.m. for deer hunting. Music was a passion and she could rap battle an Eminem song like no other. She lived her life every day to the fullest. To know her was to love her, and if you were lucky enough to have that chance to meet her, loving her was the only option.
