Her Hobbies were cooking, gardening, taking walks looking at flowers, and watching the birds. She was a firm believer in getting in your exercise. She was of the Pentecostal faith and loved reading her bible. She was a prayer warrior, believed in praying over everything, especially her children, and at least 10% of all firstfruits belonged to God. She was firm in her faith no matter what in life came at her, even until her last breath, she never wavered.
 
Lucille was a hard worker and she raised her family working on their dairy farm, milking cows, canning, and cooking. She was of old-fashioned beliefs and worked hard 365 days a year, every year to care for her loved ones. She worked many years at Conway Winters, Willow Care Nursing Home, and then volunteered for many years at Munch in Willow Springs.
 
She had a compassion and tenderness that she led her family with. You always knew where you stood with her. She was a spunky, joyful, oh so loving but oh so onery soul! She loved to laugh and to make others laugh. There was never a family get-together that there wasn’t laughter filling up her home. She had a survivor spirit that will live on through her family and the memories she leaves with them.  
 
Her favorite saying when you would leave her home was “Don’t let the bedbugs bite” or “Have a set down, “sit on your fist and rare back on your thumb” was the Grandkids favorite! You never left her without knowing how much she loved you.
 
She will be sadly missed.
