Sorry for your loss. Lucille was a lovely lady and will be missed. I didn't see the Obituary until it was too late to come to the funeral, but please know that I was thinking of you all and you are in my thoughts and prayers. It is so hard to say goodbye to our loved ones, Thank heavens for the gospel and the plan of salvation and the knowledge we have. God Bless

Dear family of Lucille (especially Dean), I met your mom when I worked at Ben Lomond Drug. She immediately became one of my dearest friends. We shared such happy times. After we both left BLD, I saw her occasionally at K mart and the temple. She was a great influence and role model for me. I adored her!! Sincerely, Kathy Lowe Archibald

I remember Grandma sitting on my arms pinning me down to the ground as a child because I was being naughty. She was a tough old bird and will be missed. Love you Gma
