Margaret Lucille Brick, age 99 ½ passed away peacefully on March 17, 2014 surrounded by her family. Margaret was 100% Irish and loved celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, so it was a special day to celebrate her life. She was born on September 22, 1914 in Seaforth, MN to Humphrey James Sullivan and Mary Margaret Dooner. In 1940, she married James Robert Brick (deceased) of Green Isle, MN. They had 4 children, Mary (Jim) Ziemer, Patricia (Alan, deceased) Berg, Robert (Anne) Brick and Michael (Nancy) Brick. She was blessed with 11 grandchildren, Colleen, Patrick, Briana, Molly, Erin, Kari, Ryan, Philip, Kayla, Shannon and Amber, and 5 great grandchildren Sarah, Bryce, Braden, Tanner and Emmet. Margaret’s first love was teaching. She received her teaching degree from Mankato State College in 1933 and received her B.S. in Elementary Education from Mankato State College in 1971. In addition to her husband James, she is preceded in death by her parents, her brothers James, Francis and Vincent, her grandson John Paul, and many extended family members. The family extends their gratitude to the many friends and family members who supported her throughout the years and particularly in the last two years when she experienced many changes in her health. A special thank you to the staff at Jones Harrison Care Center for their kindness and care of our dear mother and grandmother. We celebrate her life, her legacy and the inspiration she was to so many. Visitation on Sun., 3/23, 5-7PM at Wulff Woodbury Funeral Home, 2195 Woodlane Dr., Woodbury.

To Lucille's family -
I am so sorry to hear of Lucille's passing. We were neighbors on York Drive, and she was a wonderful neighbor to talk with. I remember she had a Christmas cactus that I could see blooming from my house across the street. She was so proud of her Irish heritage - how ironic that she passed on St. Patrick's Day. My deepest sympathies to Lucille's family.

Pat, sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I remember her, and your dad at their grocery store in B.I. I am sure you will miss her. As I was reading your mother's obituary I thought it said that Alan was deceased. Did I read it correctly, are you a widow? Love Ya, Carol Norris

Please accept my condolences on the death of Lucille. You and she are in my prayers.

I am so blessed to have known Margaret and to call her my friend! I looked forward to her smile and her laugh, each morning, at Adventure Connection. What a wonder-FULL life she lived. The world needs more people like Margaret. She will be dearly missed!

She was a great teacher at St. John Vianney in South St. Paul. What a great lady and role model.

I remember both your Dad and Mom working in their grocery store in Bird Island. Your mom was always so nice to us when we came in. I did speak with my mom today about your mom and she asked if I could include her condolenses along with mine to you. My mother is 88 and in pretty good health. Pat, I know losing your mom is one of the hardest things you will ever go through. I am sorry but your mom will only be remembered kindly and with love by all who knew her. She was a good person to everyone that met her. I only wish you and your family the best given that she has passed on. God Bless You..
