Leila Lyons was born to the late Homer Lyons and Rosie Clements
Lyons on January 10, 1937 in Meriwether County. She attended
Meriwether County public schools. She joined Arbor Chapel United
Methodist Church at an early age and was a member of the senior
choir until she became ill. She was affectionately known as Polly.
She enjoyed socializing at the Greenville Senior Citizen Center. Her
hobbies included drawing, singing, and dancing. She had a fondness
for baby dolls and had a collection of them. Polly also enjoyed good
conversations with family and friends. She called her relatives daily to
check on them and to say “hey.” She was very fun to be around. She
loved to laugh and to tell jokes. One of her favorite times of the year
was Christmas because she loved the decorations and lights.
She leaves to cherish her memory: two sisters, Mrs. Jimmie Hudson
and Mrs. Annie B. Hardnett; nieces Mrs. Minnie (James) Miller, Mrs.
Rosa Hayes, Ms. Nicole Lyons, and Ms. Angela Lyons; nephews Mr.
Willie Floyd (Elaine) Lyons, Mr. Homer (Armanda) Hudson, Mr.
Dewayne Lyons, Mr. Emmett Hardnett, Mr. Randolph Lyons, and Mr.
Travis Lyons and a host of other relatives. She had grown especially
fond of her great nieces Geraldine Means and DeOtha Means and
great nephew David Means.
