ELBA, Ala. (WDHN) — 51-year-old Lillian Renea Moulton died in a motorcycle accident Thursday night and her best friends are left reeling.
“Very shocked because I had just talked to her about a week ago on Facebook and I was like what could have happened because she was just having so much fun at Thunder Beach,” Kimberly Burks said.
Moulton was driving her 2000 Yamaha V-star motorcycle on Highway 84, six miles east of Opp, when she lost control and crashed into a guardrail.
She was heading home from one of her best friend Cristi Allen’s house.
“They left going straight home and I was sitting under my carport when somebody called me and said there’s been an accident,” Allen said. “I didn’t believe it and I didn’t accept it until I saw her daughter sitting in the road.”
Moulton is known in the western part of the Wiregrass — she was a registered nurse and manager at Enterprise Medical Center before transitioning to home health services.
Her friends said to know her was to love her.
“She was loud and country but she was fun she cared about her staff,” Burks, who worked closely with her, said.
“She would never fuss or complain, very blunt, she would tell you something whether you want to hear it or not,” Allen said.
Outside of work, she had a true love for singing in the Levee Road Band and riding motorcycles with her family and friends, especially with Christi — although they will never get to ride again, a piece of Moulton will always be with her.
“I don’t wear it because it’s Harley or have anything to do with riding I wear it because she made it for me,” Allen said emotionally.
Moulton leaves behind a husband, children, and grandchildren. Her friends are asking for prayers for the family during a difficult time.
