Lillian G. O’Neal was Born on 3/31/1929 and was taken home by the Lord on 2/17/2006 in Rocklin, CA. She was surrounded by her loving family. True to her fighting nature, it took an army of illnesses to bring her down.

O’Neal Sr., her children Diana L.Marshall and Dianas’ children Darla Ramirez, Mark Fields Jr. and Brian Fields (deceased), Donald W. Marshall, James T. Marshall and James’ children Chrystelle and Steven,

Ronald A. Marshall and Ronalds’ three sons Ronald Jr., Robert, and Richard, Jarald E. O’Neal Jr. and Jaralds’ daughters Sarah and Rebecca, Lisa Ann Peggy O’Neal.

Predeceded by her son Daniel G. Marshall, father of Amber Star Marshall. Her great niece Brandy Bales and loving daughter-in-law Janette O’Neal.

Lillian was born in San Pedro, Ca. to James and Margaret Sumpter. Her siblings were sisters Inez Hayes and Esther Allen and brothers Dude Sumpter, Audie Sumpter and Bobby Sumpter. She is survived by brothers Dude and Bobby. She is also survived by the many relatives and friends who loved her dearly.

Lillian was a wonderful homemaker before her brood became too large, prompting her to take on her second career as the world’s greatest waitress. Her customers were fiercely loyal and were endeared to her through her motherly love and quick homespun wit. She often joked that she was the head waitress at the last supper. Her engaging smile, ready humor and gift of gab brightened up the day of anyone who ever knew her or to those who were lucky enough to run into her out and about in public. She took many family members and friends in throughout the years when they were down on their luck and needed some love and understanding. Above all was her unending love for her family who were the fortunate recipients of all of her many and wonderful qualities. Her memory will live on in a million remembered smiles and a billion bits of love. We love you ten, ten, ten Mom. We’ll catch up with you and the Lord later!

Memorial service will be held at Calvary Chapel Roseville – 801 Riverside Ave., Suite Z – Roseville, CA. On Friday Feb. 24th at 10am.
