|Lily Potter née Evans|
30 January, 1960
31 October, 1980
Even at an extremely young age, Lily exhibited signs of magic such as jumping across very wide rivers and opening and closing a flower's petals with her fingers flat and the flower sitting in her open palm.
The Evans family lived in Cokeworth, as did Severus, Eileen and Tobias Snape. Severus was the one who explained to Lily that she was a witch, and taught her nearly everything she knew of the wizarding world.
Lily and James agreed to meet up with her sister and brother-in-law, Petunia and Vernon Dursley, sometime throughout the Dursleys' engagement at a restaurant. This did not go well, James being amused by Vernon and Vernon trying (and failing) to humiliate James. The end result was that the Dursleys stormed angrily out, while Lily cried and James, ashamed, promised to make things up at the next opportunity.
Although Lily was invited to her sister's wedding, she was refused the position of bridesmaid, which hurt her feelings badly. Indeed, the Dursleys refused to attend James and Lily's wedding and the last piece of correspondence between the sisters was the letter announcing Harry's birth.
