Ada Tillery was an unpretentious rich soul who embodied a wisdom that can only be granted by The Most High God and
His only begotten Son, Jesus, who is The Christ. She shared her love for the Lord with her family, which fulfilled the
promise of the Lord: Train up a child the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
KJV This has been a promise from God that Ada Tillery was blessed to see fulfilled. She witnessed this promise coming
into fruition in her offspring. She knew that undoubtedly God is faithful! She drew her last breath with her daughter,
granddaughter and her oldest grandson by her side. She departed this part of her eternal, everlasting journey, knowing,
feeling, and embracing the "unconditional" love that comes from The Lord. Oftentimes one could hear Ada openly and
unashamedly fellowshipping with the Lord. She removed all earthly boundaries and cried out to the Lord in song, dance,
praises and prayer. She was authentic. Her family rejoices in the assurance that she will hear these words from The Most
High God: "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many
things. Matthew 25:21 NKJV
Ada Tillery transitioned leaving to cherish her soul, her daughter Lois Waterhouse (Robert Waterhouse, Sr.), niece
whom she raised as a daughter, Gwendolyn Lucas (Peter Lucas), her three grandchildren: Minister Dyan Waterhouse,
Dr. Robert Waterhouse, Jr. (Maria Waterhouse), Dr. Carlton Waterhouse (Courtney Waterhouse), great nephew Kenneth
Lucas (Kesha Lucas), great niece Kimberly Guichard (Olando Guichard) Great grandchildren: Timothy Waterhouse (Ashante
Waterhouse), Robert Waterhouse III, Nia Waterhouse, Christine Waterhouse, Joshua Waterhouse, great nephews
Kyle Lucas, Kyree Lucas, Isaiah Lucas, Kamran Lucas, great niece Kairah Lucas and two great great grandchildren: Ali's
Waterhouse and Elijah Waterhouse. She is the last granddaughter of Irvin Corbett and was preceded in death by
Ada Boyd, her mother, Horace Boyd, her Father, Eliza Boyd her sister, and her brothers William Irvin Boyd and James
Thomas Boyd.
