Also surviving is her granddaughter, Saraya, daughter of Lewis and Rhonda who also resides in West Ocean City with her three sons, Rayden, Alden and Oden. Her grandson Chris, son of Sharon Albert-Kirkey resides in Merritt Island, FL. Her late son, Larry, has 2 children, Lori and Wade, who reside in Linden, VA and in Columbia, MD where their children, grandchildren also reside. She also has many nieces, nephews of her deceased siblings who reside in Strasburg and Woodstock, VA, North Carolina and Colorado.
Lucille worked for Postal Telegraph in Washington, DC, Hot Shoppes in Northern VA, and was employed by Safeway in the Meat Department (wrapper and weighed meat) where she retired after 26 years.
She loved spending time with her immediate and extended family as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved cooking for her family and anyone who knew her knew how wonderful of a cook she was! A typical trait of all her sisters. She was very fond of dancing and loved going to dances up the country, especially at New Year's. She also enjoyed bowling and was a league member for a number of years. She enjoyed going to NASCAR races in person and always watched every race she could not attend on tv. Her favorite driver was Mark Martin. She loved to travel, most of the time with her sister Peggy and Viola. Over the years she has had many opportunities to travel to Florida with her sister Viola; a car trip to Colorado with her grandson, Chris, and her 2 daughters. On several occasions she traveled with her sister, Peggy, to Colorado and other mid-western states across the country. She took many chartered bus trips, especially those in which her brother, Junior, was the driver. She also made a special car trip with her grandson, Chris, to Maine to meet his relatives for the first time (on his father's side). She LOVED country and bluegrass music, as well as attending concerts and festivals of both music genres. Her favorite singer was George Strait. In her 97 years, Lucille has been a beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Cousin, Aunt and Friend.
She will be forever loved and dearly missed. She now is at peace in GOD'S heavenly kingdom, reunited with all her family and friends who passed before her. That must be some PARTY!
Lucille will be forever LOVED and dearly MISSED by her immediate surviving family. Linda, who lived with her as well as being her 24/7 caregiver, now finds a void and a quiet in our home that never existed before and now is hard to bear.
