Lilly Renee Teixeira
Age 24, recently of Hillsboro, Missouri departed this life unexpectantly too soon in April 2022. Lilly was born on June 3rd, 1997, and grew up in Atwater, California. In 2010, Lilly moved to Missouri with her family and attended Hillsboro High School where she graduated in 2015. Lilly was a very giving and free-spirited soul. She was extremely artistic and saw beauty in everyday life. She was always looking for an adventure and if you were lucky enough to know her you felt her positive spirit. Her art was created with joy and radiance just like her personality. If she were not drawing pictures for someone she loved she could be found watching her favorite episodes of SpongeBob, and most likely reciting every word, followed by her infectious laughter.
She was lovingly given the nickname Bug at age 3 and it has always been a part of who she is and always will be, our beautiful Lilly Bug--
Growing up Lilly played many sports but her all-time favorite was soccer. In high school, she played varsity as a freshman and loved her Hillsboro soccer family very much. Lilly loved hiking and camping(mostly for the smores). As a young girl, she enjoyed girl scouts & 4H. Her true love was for animals, she LOVED the St Louis Zoo and her favorite animal was definitely the sloths!
Lilly is survived by her “mama”, Jeri Teixeira and 7 siblings, Myles, Jordan, Jasmine, Marissa, Lilianna, Tanner, and Evan. Her pride and joys were her nephews & niece! She is also survived by her grandparents Mary (Beth) & Mario Moreno of Atwater, California. Her aunts Tina Leon and Michele (Chel-Chel) Broussard both of California. Numerous loving cousins and amazing friends.
She was preceded in death by her great grandparents John & Ann Rodrigs.
