Lucille was a devoted and loving mother, sister, grandmother and friend. She loved her family like none other, always willing to go without so someone else could have. She looked forward to her family coming together any time that they possible could and once they were together you could always hear her famous saying when it was time to depart, “well, you ain’t got to be in such a big hurry”. She was the glue that kept the family together.
