Lucy Manuel, age 77, of Lake Charles, Louisiana joined her husband in Heaven on Saturday, February 20, 2021. Lucy was born October 14, 1943 in Mamou, Louisiana.

She was a faithful member of St. Margaret’s Catholic Church for all of her life. Lucy took exceptional care of her family, a devoted wife and mother to her two children as well as to many children that she took into her home to raise. She adored cooking and baking for her family; her family will miss her fig cakes the most. Lucy was a talented seamstress that would sew clothes for her children, taking extra care to include two pockets for her son’s shirts. She would always look forward to spending a girl’s night with her friends and sharing her contagious laughter. Lucy taught her family to be loyal and devoted to their family and faith. She was a loyal, devoted, and adoring mother, wife, and friend to many that is already deeply missed.

Lucy leaves behind her daughter, Katina McCoy; son, Toby Manuel; grandchildren, Joshua McCoy and wife Michele, Jennifer Marshall and husband Cory, Jacob McCoy and wife Emma, and Toby James Manuel; great-grandchildren, Grace Marshall, Graham McCoy, Camden McCoy, and Layla Marshall; sister, Jeanette Manuel; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 44 loving years, Vernal Manuel; brother, Randyl Guillory; as well as her parents, Isom and Luther Guillory.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Harbor Hospice for their exceptional care of Ms. Lucy.

Mama Lucy

I am glad I had the pleasure of meeting you. It was a honor to fight for a new refrigerator because the one they gave you was not working
properly and it was giving you problems. I will always keep you close to my heart and will love you always. You will be missed....

Tina, Toby, and all,
You're all in my thoughts as you prepare to say goodbye this side of Heaven to Mrs. Lucy. She was always so pleasant, and I enjoyed getting to know her over the years.

Praying for God's grace to comfort and give each of you peace. I know you'll miss her, but we have the promise as Christians that we'll meet again.
