“Lucy” was a fun, outgoing woman who loved family and friends like no other. You would rarely see her without a smile on her face, and she was always eager to extend a helpful hand to friends and neighbors. She loved meeting people and worked most of her career in retail clothing, including over fifteen years at Sears and Roebuck. On February 22, 1975, she married Marvin Menzel of Thorndale, Texas. Lucille spent the next 42 years of her married life in Shallowater Texas with Marvin. She was active in their church, Redeemer Lutheran Church. She also blessed many shut-ins through her years of hospitality with the Meals on Wheels program.

After her husband’s passing in 2017, Lucille moved to Ft. Worth to be closer to family. She was a devoted and godly wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and neighbor. She will be missed tremendously by her family and friends.

Lucille was preceded in death by her husband, Marvin Menzel; parents, Edwin and Emily Voss; brothers, Elmer, Vanner, and Erwin Voss; and sister, Bertha Dorner.
