She loved them all!

Lucille died peacefully at home in Taylorsville after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and Dementia. Thank you to the care givers from Signature home Health and Hospice for their wonderful care of Lucille and support for her family.

Lucille was a home maker. As her children got older she worked for the state of Utah, from which she retired, she did child care after retirement, (That’s where all of those non direct descendent grand children came from). She loved to sew until her hands wouldn’t allow it, then she started doing hook rugs, which she truly enjoyed.

Lucille was a life time member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; she served in the Primary as a teacher, in the Relief Society presidency, and as a Stake Missionary. She was busy with children of her own when serving in the primary. She frequently related how much she loved serving in the Relief Society, and as a Missionary.

A viewing will be held at McDougal Funeral Home in Taylorsville, Utah on Wednesday April 7, 2021 for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers please make a contribution to the charity of your choice.
