Lila Mae Rolfe, 97, passed away September 22, 2019 surrounded by her family. She was born on August 3, 1922 to Sterling and Anabel Sights Sr. in Cairo, Kentucky.

Lila grew up on a farm with her family and she was the second oldest of 13 siblings. She worked at Republic Aviation during World War II. During her time there, she became a pen pal to a soldier at war. This soldier became her husband Kenneth. They were married when he returned home from World War II. Lila was a homemaker who loved to take care of and spend time with her ever growing family. She also was an Avon Lady for 23 years and won several awards. Lila was a devout Christian woman and a member of Calvary Temple for over 50 years. She travelled to the Holy Land three times back in the 70s.
