Lucille grew up working at a produce market during the depression. Her life was centered around her family. She was an excellent baker and her family and friends loved her pies, cookies and other desserts. She and friends made “tons of” Christmas candy for several years. Lucille was a talented knitter, quilter and made beautiful handcrafts. She leaves behind enough afghans “to cover her entire family”. She loved working in her garden and grew beautiful flowers. She and her husband traveled to Florida for many years where she enjoyed shelling and square dancing. They also traveled around the country in a RV creating wonderful memories.
Lucille is survived by her children, Marilyn Doub, Judy (Robert) Scheer, Ron (Joyce) Sanderson; grandchildren, Tom (CeCe), Mike (Brittney); and great-children, Jackson, Lucy, Millie, MacKenzie and Sadie. She was preceded in death by her parents and husband.
