Lilly Warren, Age 17, passed away surrounded by her family October 26, 2022 as a result of an accident on Canyon Road in Springville, Utah. She was born March 8, 2005, to Sam and Holly (Robertson) Warren in American Fork, Utah.

She is survived by her parents and younger brothers Atticus and Johnny Redd, her grandparents Liza (Chris) Carter, Kent Robertson, Suzanne Robertson, Great Grandmother Juel Belmont, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and the numberless “adopted” members of Lilly’s family circle that she accumulated over her life. Those who knew Lilly best called her by a long list of nicknames including, Too loud Lilly, Lillyputt, Queen of the Lilliputains, Darling Lilly, Putter, Gigi, Lills, Idia, Willy, and Lilly Bug. Lilly was passionate and daring enough to try anything. From high school wrestling, to running heavy equipment with her dad, to begging to join the boys football team. She flew an airplane, wanted to skydive at 5-years-old, rode roller coasters with her brother Atticus and played any game conceived by Johnny Redd’s brilliant mind. Lilly’s creations were impressive from putting countless sharpie tattoos on her brothers, to traditional artwork with watercolors, to welding projects that her teachers displayed on the “table of champions” as an example for other students. She loved old music had awesome lashes and fingernails, and wore beautiful cowboy boots, and belt buckles, although she did not own a horse.

She was strong and fierce. Her Bio on Instagram read, “I have a degree in smart-ass, a black belt in sarcasm and just a few credits short of being a b####”. She loved any small fuzzy animals and would bring them home with an explanation that she had decided to ask forgiveness and not permission. She loved Dr. Pepper but only if poured correctly by her dad from a fountain, had an endless list of movie quotes, and could name any song from just the first few notes. She drove more miles in her dads Cobra, and while riding motorcycles with her mother to work at La Casita, than any other girl with no driver’s license and only a learner’s permit.

One of the ultimate highlights of Lilly’s 17 years was seeing her parents married last year after a 19-year courtship that she orchestrated with her two younger brothers. She loved as fiercely as she lived, and she described time with her boyfriend Dylan as some of the happiest moments of her life. She lived two lifetimes in her short years.

We are so grateful to all the witnesses, first responders, bystanders, and Utah Valley Hospital staff who rendered lifesaving care to Lilly and helped her to survive one more day so that we could all be gathered around her and let her know how much she is loved before she passed. A special thank you to Patriarch Neil Strong who assisted by giving Lilly her Patriarchal Blessing at the hospital. We had an amazing day. Lilly will live on through organ donation and will bless the lives of other families who have waited for their own miracles.
