Lucille was an accounting clerk for Cummins Diesel and retired after more than 25 years of dedicated service to the company. She worked until age 75, and she never missed a day at the office, and she didn’t want to retire either.
Lucille loved to play bingo and take bus tours to Tunica to play as well. She enjoyed reading, especially romance comedies and mysteries, Nora Roberts was one of her favorite authors. In her younger years, she was a wonderful dancer and enjoyed ballroom dancing with her friend, Lou, at Casa Loma Ballroom.
Above all, family was most important to Lucille, and she loved spending time with her kids and grandkids. She always looked forward to family get-togethers and dinners on Saturdays at Kelly’s.
Lucille was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Memorial contributions may be made in Lucille's name to Five Acres Animal Shelter.
