In her later years, Lucille enjoyed the companionship of her loyal yellow Labrador, Kelli, who accompanied her on her daily walks.

Lucille was our loving mother and our rock. As our father always said, Lucy was our guiding compass and our north star. She allowed us to follow our own path wherever that would lead, and was always there to safely guide us back home. Lucille loved each of us unconditionally and we will miss her love and guidance every day. Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, February 4, 2020 at St. Anthony Catholic Church.

We are so sorry to hear of Lucille's passing. She and Dick were always such a dynamic, fun loving couple who always added to the wonderful get togethers at Grandma Koeppel's house. I always seeked Lucille out for gardening tips and suggestions. She was such a lovely, gracious person and I loved talking to her. Heaven is so happy now. She is reunited with all of her loved ones.........the celebration continues!

Lucy was a dear friend to my mother. They worked together at the 182nd Air National Guard for many years where their friendship began and lasted throughout the years. May both their memories be eternal.
