She carried memberships with the Rock City Senior Citizens where she served as past president and was a past secretary and member for many years with the DeCarlo – Staffo Post Auxiliary. Tillie loved her home, so close to her work at Benton Hall where the kids meant everything to her, a home always inviting to her friends and neighbors.
