Lillian Barnhart Fleeman (1907-2001)
Lillian was born in Austin, TX. She met and married Homer Fleeman, from Georgia, in 1932. They moved to Rogers in 1943 with their two sons, Leroy and Bill. She was a devoted wife and mother and was fortunate to be able to stay at home and raise their sons. Bill died May 1, 1999, Homer died November 3, 2000, and Lillian died 69 days later, which was also the number of years that they were married. Lillian was a life member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. She was always concerned for the welfare of those less fortunate than herself. She and Homer had a young friend (and former employee), who was a single parent of two boys, one of whom had serious medical problems. They often mentored and assisted that family in particular till the day she died.
