Lilly Gregory Obituary

Lilly Pearl Gregory was born July 20, 1944, to the late Pearl Daisy Gregory. She 
quietly entered into eternal rest on December 23, 2023, at the age of 79 at the 
Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC.
Lilly was raised in Buckingham, VA and educated in the Buckingham County 
School system. She was baptized at Baptist Union Baptist Church at an early age 
and later moved to Richmond, VA where she did domestic work. Later in life she 
moved to Washington, DC where she resided until her passing. She was an 
active member of Mount Salvation Baptist Church in Arlington, VA until her 
health started to decline.
Lilly was known by many and she kept in touch with her family on a regular 
basis. She was our family tree. She had the memory of an elephant. She would 
often share stories from the past like it was yesterday. She was an avid Dallas 
Cowboy fan and had no problem making it known. Lilly loved baking. Her 7-
up, marble, and apple pound cakes were always requested by her family and 
friends. 
Lilly was preceded in death by her mother Pearl Gregory; four siblings, Howard 
Gregory, Dorothy Dabney, Floyd Gregory, and Allen Gregory. 
She leaves to cherish her sons Alton Gregory of Upper Marlboro, Md, and 
Raymal Gregory of Washington, DC. One granddaughter, Tiana Rollerson. Two 
sisters, Ruby Johnson (Andrew) and Alice Palmer, both of New Canton, VA; two 
sisters-in-laws, Helen Gregory of Washington, DC and Paulette Gregory of 
Elkin, NC. A host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who loved her dearly.
Lilly's presence will be missed throughout her family and friends; however, she 
leaves many fond memories.
