June 22, 2019 saw the passing of a great lady, Mathilde “Tilli” Grey.  She was born on November 8, 1926.  She was a devoted wife, mother and friend to many.  Tillie is survived by her loving husband, Ed, of 68 years; her daughter, Brigitte; and son, Ed, Jr.  Tillie enjoyed life so much and was very active.  She was a member of the Church of the Butte, participated in water aerobics every Monday, played Bunco two days a month at the American Legion and was a member of the local NARFE chapter.  During the summer months she went fishing every week with her son, Ed.  During her lifetime, Tilli saw many changes from her birthplace, Abtenau, Austria to Las Cruces, NM, to Albuquerque, NM, to Anchorage, Alaska, and back to Elephant Butte, NM.  She was always able to adapt and join in.  She will be missed by so many friends, but mostly by her family.  A Celebration of Life will be held later in July at the Church at the Butte.

    I have very fond memories of Tilli from when I was growing up. Since reconnecting in 2015, I enjoyed trading Christmas cards with her and catching up. Tilli was a special person and will be missed.

    So saddened to see this! It didn't take long for Ms Grey and I to become friends, when I began working at WSFCU in T or C. Everytime she came in it's like I knew her my whole life. She treated me with the most sincere love and greeting you could get. She would even wait in line allowing people to go in front of her, so she could come to my station and I could assist her. It didn't take long to learn what she wanted. She sent me the sweetest card on my college graduation and I'll never forget our talks!
