Lillie Ruth Head, 91, of Pryor, passed away on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at her home. She was born on October 10, 1929 in Farris, Oklahoma; the daughter of Jess and Doll (Hall) Storie. She graduated from Atoka High School and has lived in the Mayes County area for 20 years, coming from Antlers, Oklahoma. She was lovingly known as “Granny” to all who knew and loved her. Granny loved to go dancing in her early years and enjoyed being active. She was a dedicated and hard worker throughout her life. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, and loved to take her grandkids swimming at the lake, so that she would also have a chance to fish. She was a lady of many talents and worked as a carpenter for her own home. Granny tore down walls to refurbish her house and framed in and built a huge rock patio. In her later years, she painted, embroidered and crocheted. Granny still loved to cook for her grandkids and spend time with them when she could. Granny loved her Lord, her children, grandchildren, and family. She leaves behind so many wonderful memories for her family to cherish.
