I remember Lucille from my teenage years, hanging out with Doug, David, & Cindy. As I grew older, I remember her from church, Eastern Hills Church and Peace Christian Church. She was always there, ready to lend a hand.Sending prayers of comfort to the family.

Lucille was easy to be friends with. She seemed to love everyone unconditionally. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I knew Lucille for about 6 years. She and her husband, Howard, have been faithful members of Faith Baptist Church where they loved and encouraged everyone they came into contact with. I know that Howard and the rest of the family will miss this light that has gone out of their lives, and Lucille will be missed very much, but knowing that she is with our Lord even at this moment is a cause to celebrate. We will celebrate in joy with her someday.
