Lucille was a unique lady. She loved her grandchildren and was always eager to hear the latest news of their active lives. She was a caregiver, and devoted countless hours to caring for her ailing husbands Ed and Frank. She was also a caregiver to her Aunt Maybelle and husband.
She loved to travel and traveled extensively across the United States, Mexico and in later years to China and the Philippines.
Over the past few years her health has declined rapidly. She was in the caring hands of Guilford Health Care Center who provided the intensive care she required. The family is forever grateful.
She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Pleasant Grove, AL, where a tentative service of remembrance is planned on the 30th of September 2017. Further details to come.
