Lillie Marie Hartman was born to Acklin Joseph and Mary Alice Stinger- Hartman on September 26, 1939 in Beaumont, Texas. At an early childhood age, she acknowledged Jesus as her Lord and Savior. She united and was baptized at the Sunlight Missionary Baptist Church under the Pastorate of the late Reverend G.W. Daniels.
Lillie attended the Beaumont public schools, where she graduated from Charlton Pollard High School after being a part of the school "Bull Dogs" drill team. During this period, Lillie was very active and instrumental in the "Lunch Counter Sit-ins" (A Civil Rights Movement) - throughout the Beaumont area.
Lillie married her childhood sweetheart, soul mate, schoolmate and church mate, Mr. Theodis Daniel (nicknamed "Baby Boy") in November 13, 1956. His service in the United States Air Force carried them across the world. While her husband served at Chandler AFB in Higley, Arizona, Lillie gave birth to a bouncing baby girl that they named Pheena Marie. Three years later, while stationed in Biloxi, Mississippi, identical twin girls were born- Priscilla Lynn and Patricia Ann. Sadly, Priscilla preceded them in death, only after a few hours of life.
Other tours of duty included Kansas, Nevada and Tripoli, Libya. While in North Africa, Lillie continued to Serve People as Family Services Counselor, assisting in Spiritual, Financial and Educational support. She was also selected as Sunday School Teacher for the children who attended Church Services on the Base.
Upon returning to the States, Mrs. Lillie Daniel continued her education at the Austin Community College, where she studied Business Administration. She also became a member of the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church under Pastorate of Rev. G.V. Clark around September of 1979.
Later, Lillie became employed at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). There she continued to share her gifts and talents as a Tax Examiner, Trainer and Instructor. She also served with the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) as an Assistant and Counselor. During her tenure with the EEO Office, she organized and implemented the first Black History Month Observance and Activities at the Austin Campus of the IRS. Her efforts birth the idea of a Gospel Choir. This IRS Gospel Choir held yearly concerts for over 30 years. This Choir is still called, on at various occasions at the Austin IRS office, to sing praises unto God. Black History Observances are still being held, with Activities/Events for those IRS Employees.
Lillie often mentored and modeled Christian living to 5-6 year old children. She taught them the importance of Church etiquette and stewardship through Biblical application of worship, giving of tithes/offerings as well as Church decorum. Many of her students were those with "hidden talents", and more often from other areas, outside of the State of Texas.

Lillie Daniel was called upon many times as the Spiritual Guest Speaker for many local Churches.
In 1984, Lillie was recommended and approved to serve as the Mt. Zion M.B. Church Assistant Secretary. In 1985, when the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church was seeking a Church Secretary, Lillie Daniel was approved and asked to serve in that capacity. She faithfully and dutifully administered and served her Pastor, Church, St. John District and State/ National Conventions, until her health fail and she could no longer continue.

Sunday school Teacher
Leader for Young Christians in Action (YCA's)
