Lucy Julia Bedrosian Gregory, age 89 of Athens, passed away peacefully on March 25, 2020 with her loving family at her side.

A native of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Lucy was born on October 17, 1930 and was the daughter of the late Asie and Mattie Lou (Gordon) Bedrosian.

Lucy was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was also a member of St. Gregory the Great Episcopal Church in Athens, where she served in many capacities from singing in the choir (as a trained soloist) to serving on the vestry and as senior warden. In Wisconsin, Lucy was the president of the Kenosha Junior Women’s Club, the Kenosha Public Schools Orchestra Boosters, and the Racine Big Sisters Organization (before its United Way affiliation).

Lucy is survived by her son, Dr. Robert (Jennifer Cook) Gregory of DeWitt, Iowa, her daughter, Cynthia (Ray) Hoover of Athens, and her three granddaughters, Rachel, Julia, and Abigail Hoover, all of Athens.

Along with her husband and her parents, Lucy is predeceased by her sisters, Edna Thomey, Geraldine Gann, and Esther Hamsing, and her brothers, Oscar Bedrosian and Gordon Bedrosian.

In light of the current health crisis, services will be announced at a later date when friends and loved ones will be able to gather in celebration of Lucy’s beautiful life.

Lucy was not just my Mother in Law. She was my friend. After Gordon passed, she and I would often meet for lunch, and sit and talk for hours. At the end, after she became too ill to go out, she was here with us, and we had the privilege of being at her side at the end. I know she’s happy now. She talked often of how she was looking forward to seeing her family, and especially Dad again. I feel no sorrow for her, I’m just sorry for us. I took great pleasure in calling this woman “Mom” and I will miss her immensely. Fair Winds and Following Seas.
