Lucille loved quilting and made lovely quilts for each of her children and grandchildren. She also loved to travel, play cards, dance, and spend time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Lucille and Dave traveled extensively with family, friends and OAK Towers tours, often being tour leaders. Lucille retired from the University of Missouri where she worked as Chief Transcript Clerk. She volunteered in the Medtique Shop at University of Missouri Hospital for 34 years, "retiring" after her 95th birthday. Lucille and Dave were long time, active members of Broadway Christian Church, joining in 1959 shortly after the family moved to Columbia from Brookfield, Missouri.
Lucille will be fondly remembered for her sense of humor, warm smile and willingness to help anyone in need. The family wishes to express their appreciation for the loving kindness and consideration shown by Candlelight Lodge, South Hampton Place, Preferred Hospice and the members of Broadway Christian Church and the ministers thereof, Tim Carson, Terry Overfelt and Rick Frost.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to Broadway Christian Church or the Central Missouri Humane Society as Lucille never met an animal she didn't love.
