I think my lilies are ill. I bought 3 lilies. After planting, one lily had leaves turn yellow and then black. I cut off the stem, and it was black inside the stem also. I pulled the plant, bought another lily and planted it. Now one of the earlier lilies is having a similar problem with the leaves turning yellow and then black.

It does sound like a disease and I'm not sure why all of your lilies are affected. You may need to plant them in a different part of the garden, one that drains well, until you figure out where the disease is coming from. Hope it stops infecting your lilies!
