Maybelline's final Matriarch.

Tom Lyle and his sister Eva Williams-Haines, were the last remaining siblings out of the original six Williams Children.  Here is a letter from TL, to Eva, one year exactly, before his death in 1976.


TL and Eva, 10 years before his death.


Thomas Lyle Williams
900 Airole Way, Bel Air
Los Angeles, California, 90034
September 27, 1975

Dear Sneeve:





Notice the cute nick names TL and Eva, have for each other, and the way he signs his name, Tommy Lyle.  TL, remained devoted to his family until the end of his life. 

Eva carried on the Williams family tradition, as the final Maybelline Matriarch, and was a close confidant of mine, during my quest, to write The Maybelline Story.

Read more about Eva, TL and the rest of the Williams family in The Maybelline Story and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind It.  Get your signed copy of The Maybelline Story at www.maybellinestory.com for the Holiday's.
