Lillie Mills Sorrell went to her heavenly home on Thursday morning, Dec. 10 at only two months of age.

This gentle soul was born in Wilmington on Oct. 6, 2015. Her parents, Adam and Katherine (Katie), welcomed this new addition with love and the anticipation of a full and happy life. Her big brother, Spencer Hayes, was excited to share in the responsibilities of caring for his little sister. She already had him wrapped around her little finger.

Lillie was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, Judith Sorrell. Lillie is survived by her paternal grandfather, Dan Sorrell, and her maternal grandparents Danny and (Carolyn) Maxine Mills Allen. Lillie’s aunts, uncles and cousins–Hannah (Steve) Alley and their children, Tyler Hobby and Cason; Mandy (Darren) Selvidge and their children, Tanner and Emily; Summer (Tom) Hilker and their children, Mckenzie and Davis; Phillip and Anne Sorrell; Danny Sorrell and his son, Danny–also mourn the loss of this sweet angel.

Our lives will be forever changed by the loss of this beloved baby. May these words from the gospel, “His Eye Is On the Sparrow,” resound in the hearts and minds of all of those mourning Lillie’s passing: “Let not your heart be troubled, His tender word I hear, And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears; Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see; His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.” We know He is watching Lillie Mills Sorrell until we meet her again.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Andrews Mortuary.
