Lucille spent her early years in Los Angeles, California where she baptized on June 15, 1960 at the Peace Pursuing District Assembly of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She briefly lived in Arkansas before returning home to DeRidder to rear her children with family and friends. She had a strong love for Jehovah and faith in his future kingdom promises.

She used those skills to design and alter garments for businesses and private clients throughout Louisiana, Texas, and California. Lucille also worked as a teacher assistant for the Beauregard Parish School District at Pinewood Elementary School and also worked at the Beauregard Memorial Hospital in the Janitorial Services Department.


Over the years, her many hobbies included making jewelry, cooking, canning and gardening.

Anyone who knew Lucille knows that she was a very vibrant, kind and caring woman who was always willing to help by giving of her time and the use of her resources whenever there was a need. She will be missed dearly, but we look forward to seeing her during the promised resurrection. (Acts 24:15)
