Sister was a great teacher. She taught me and a few of my kids. They told me that they will always remember what they learned in her class room. She may have seemed a little strict but we retained what we learned. She loved children. Rest in peace.

I will always remember sister at recess she could hit farther kick farther and out run all of us even in her dress shoes! I remember running down the sideline of a field at bishop Carroll playing for Margaret Mary and looked over and there was sister running beside me step for step cheering me on priceless. she was a great teacher and role model , I'm surprised we didn't get some girls to become nuns from all the great role models we were blessed with.

Sr Lucille was a wonderful friend, confidant, and colleague of mine for many years. She gave me the confidence to take on new challenges, just as she herself did. I've always called her my "Church history guru" because she helped me begin teaching Church history when I knew very little. Because of her influence, I fell in love with that subject and continued to teach it to both middle schooler and adults for years to come. My children remember her as the "ice cream lady' because we would often go to the Dairy Queen together. I will miss her confident smile and strong sense of social in peace, my dear friend!

I have fond memories of Sister Lucille centered around baseball. During family get togethers at Grandma Loretta’s house, there would always be a conversation about baseball with her, Sister Remigia, and Aunt Marlene, with me in the middle. I really enjoyed those talks at a very young age and was always impressed with their knowledge. My favorite times were when the sisters and Uncle Walt would drive through Cimarron on one of their many summer adventures and stop and catch one of my games. I’m pretty sure I played my best when those 4 were in attendance. I had the best cheering section at the park!
