Lillie Roland Salmons, age 75, a lifelong resident of Marion, passed away peacefully at Mountain Ridge Wellness Center on Monday, July 24, 2017 following a brief period of declining health.  Lillie was a daughter of the late Arnold Roland and Maggie Ratcliff Roland of Marion and was born on February 15, 1942.  She delivered the McDowell News for many years.  A trusted mother, grandmother and friend, she was loyal to those she loved and could be counted on to stand by her loved ones through thick and thin.  She had a special place in her heart for her children and especially her grandchildren.  Lillie loved to travel, was an excellent cook and enjoyed listening to Country and Bluegrass music.  A truly special lady, she will be deeply missed by those whose lives she touched.  A sister, Elizabeth Moore, and a brother, Horace Roland, preceded her in death.

 

Surviving, in addition to her mother, are her daughter, Martha Ann Hardy and husband Ron Compton, and her son, Carl Roland and wife Joyce, all of Marion; a brother, J. D. Roland of Marion; two sisters, Mary Byrd and husband Ed of Marion and Betty Phillips and husband Jimmy of Bakersville; six grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.
