Spent so many hours with Lucille. We shared some of the hardest times in our lives with our friend Pat when our husbands were in Oak Hill. A very sweet lady that I will remember always as a dear friend. Loved you Lucille.

My deepest condolences. Your mom was a Rock Star with the patients at MO CO nursing home. I learned a lot from her. She was so kind and had a beautiful smile.

My sympathy to Lucille's family. Worked with her many years ago at Monroe County Nursing. She was an excellent CNA. Great sense of humor and pleasure to be around. May peace find its way into your hearts.
