Lucille was my supervisor when I worked at Wellco. She was engaged to Gil at the time, while checking on my machine, she left that beautiful diamond laying on my machine! I put it in my pocket and waited!! You should have seen her frantically looking for it. I call her over and ask, “Is this what you are looking for”?? She hugged and hugged me!! We laughed a lot about that!! I loved her, she was precious! Heaven is sweeter!!!

Michael and I have such wonderful memories of Lucille during our time at Faith UMC. She was always such a pleasure, always had a smile on her face. We are so glad that we got to know her and will miss her sweet face. May God's blessings be upon her.

To the Wright Family:

What a legacy Lucille lived to be 100 years of age. My Mother and her were good friends at Faith United Methodist Church. They sang in the choir, women's group and both help to found the church.
May Lucille live in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
