Lillie “Cookie” Fontenot

Lillie “Cookie” Fontenot, age 73 of Silsbee, TX, passed away on Saturday, July 7th, 2018. She was born to James and Madelyn Adair on September 1st, 1944 in Port Arthur, TX. Cookie was a Southeast Texan her entire life. She was a free spirit, loved by so many that crossed her path. Her giving nature was clearly seen by so many. As a clerk, Cookie made a great deal of acquaintances with people from all walks of life, yet her loving spirit-built bridges to all of them. Cookie’s faith in God brought her through all life’s tests, while she visited many churches throughout the years her faith could best be described as just being a Christian. Her loving attitude could be quickly lost if anyone had the audacity to mistreat her children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren. While Cookie loved fishing and had happily visited every pond in Silsbee, TX, the people who really knew her were aware of her favorite past-time, pennyslots at the casino.
