Lucille attended St. Augustine grammar school and Notre Dame High School in Fairfield. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She took great pride in raising her children and grandchildren and taking care of her family. Lucille worked in the Guidance office at Bullard Havens HS for 20 years until she retired in 1995. Lucille loved the outdoors, working in her garden, camping in their motorhome throughout many states. She had a passion for cooking, especially Italian. Her famous sauce and meatballs, eggplant parmesan and breaded chicken cutlets were always a favorite. She always made extra, for anyone who stopped by her kitchen and it was always open. The unconditional love she gave and the values she taught will forever live in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
