Mrs. Versie Lee Hilliard the sun rose on February 6, 1920, and set on September 29, 2018, in Ackerman, Mississippi for Versie Lee Hilliard. God came down and picked a beautiful Rose from His Garden. She was a vibrant woman of God, who loved her bright color suits and hats. She loved flowers, she was a lovable character, a person everyone chose to have as a friend and willing to be a friend to all. She was a neighbor and a very inspiring happy person that seems to enjoy every minute of her spirit-filled life and never happier than serving her Lord in her church.
She attended school in Choctaw County, she joined Mill Spring Baptist Church in Weir, MS at an early age. She later joined Christian Liberty Baptist Church in Kosciusko, MS and attended until moving to Jackson, MS, where she united with St, Luther Baptist Church, where she was faithful and present at service when she could. She returned to Weir, MS and to reunite Christian Liberty Baptist Church until she went home with her Heavenly Father.
Versie did not want us to mourn her passing, but to rejoice for her going home to a beautiful place than any we have ever known. We call heaven. A life lived as sister Hilliard's can not die, but will live on in the hearts and memories and ideas of all those who knew and loved her.
Public Viewing will be October 5, 2018, at Peoples Funeral Home located at 886 N. Farish Street Jackson, MS 39202, from 3-5 p.m.
Mrs. Hilliard will repose on Saturday, October 6, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at Christian Liberty Baptist Church located at 207 South Street - Kosciusko, MS, Funeral service will promptly follow at 11:00 a.m. Interment will follow at City Cemetery also in Kosciusko, MS.
Jesus said to Verise, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he was dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?" John 11: 25-26
