Toots was born October 16, 1925 in Ada, Oklahoma, to Amos and Ophelia Brandon. She attended school in Byng, Oklahoma. She was very active in sports. She played basketball under Coach Bertha Teague, and even played baseball on the boys team during the war.

After she completed school, Toots married Lowell Lillard, on October 30, 1943. To this beautiful union they added five children. Toots was never one to shy away from hard work. She had many different jobs throughout life, but her most important job always was their family. She also stayed active playing basketball on the Pink Panthers into her 50's. After they retired they trained and raced horses. Many memories came away from the Winners Circle. After horse racing Toots worked at Braums, and spent the rest of her time spoiling her ever growing family. Toots wasnt much for words, but you knew if you received baked goods out of her phenomenal kitchen you were loved.

Toots was preceded in death by her husband Lowell, her parents, sisters Lanell Mace and Laverne Dutch Clark, brothers Leroy Brandon and Leonard Brandon.
