Lucille and I worked together at One Source FCU after she retired from the phone company. She was one of the sweetest people I've ever known. Her spirit was bright and loving and touched all those she came into contact with. We didn't speak often after we each retired and I moved away, but just knowing her light still shined bright was one of the reasons that made El Paso home. We'll all miss Lucille, but we can take comfort knowing that she is well and safe in His arms.

I first met Lucille in the fall of 2018 when she was helping Darlene set up the library @ Oak Hill High School. We all shared a meal from the local barbeque place in the town where the school is. We talked & shared thoughts on our love of country music & Mickey Gilley. A little while after that Lucille sent me a "Gilley's" shot glass through Darlene. I will treasure it always!! I lost my mother earlier this year, so I especially am sending my condolences to Darlene, but I am praying for comfort for all of Lucille's family & friends.
