Lucille was a loving mother and grandmother, as one granddaughter quoted Grandma was a calming person to talk to, if you had a problem, Grandma would listen and give great advice. Even though Lucille was not a member of a church she was a devoted Christian lady who read her bible and lived by what she read. Lucille, when she was able to see, loved to work crossword puzzles and read, crocheted beautiful pieces, and loved watching Molly B on TV. But most of all she loved her kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved all her Meadowbrook Apartment Family and all her Greene County Home Health Care Family, and most recently her Kindred Hospice Family. Her face would light-up when anyone would come to visit or call.
