On Thursday, April 30, 2020, while a patient at Sanford Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls, Lillie Raelynn Rowe went home to her Heavenly Father and Heaven gained a bright and beautiful new angel. She was 20 years old.
Lillie was born on August 31, 1999 in Mesa, Arizona and has been a joy to everyone fortunate enough to know her ever since. To know Lillie was to love her. She was a graduate of Scotland High School, Class of 2017.
Lillie had an extraordinary love for all animals, especially for her fur baby, Kota. She enjoyed horseback riding, reading, photography and doing makeup and nails.
Beautiful inside and out, Lillie was a gentle soul; kind, considerate, hopeful, courageous and altogether lovely. Her sweet goodness brought her many friends throughout her life and she was adored by her entire family. Lillie loved her Heavenly Father and her Savior, Jesus Christ and was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Lillie is survived by her fiancé, David Petrik; her parents, Allie and Robert Rowe; siblings Delaney, Jeremy, Ashley, Michael, Daniel, Desirae and Rachael; and by grandparents Richard Shenton, Velvett Bossio, Richard Moore, Nancy Moore, Ron Radmer and Teri Clem.
