Nobody else held me so tight

No one's eyes shined so bright with love
As my mom, who is now high above.

Lucy was no stranger to anyone she met. After five minutes with her, she knew everything about you, including where you were born, where you live and even your favorite color.

Lucy was truly a friend to everyone and a mom to many. She cared deeply for her family and neighbors. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was. She was always the first to offer help. If it was your birthday, holiday or just to be neighborly, she would bake a cake, cookies, or a pie. Lucy always did the best for you. Lucy had an amazing sense of humor and a beautiful laugh!  She always kept you on your toes. Always had a joke to share.

Lucy took pleasure in many pastimes and fun activities. She loved to bowl and was on a women’s bowling league for many years. She loved to walk with friends and neighbors during the summer months around Roswell High School and her neighborhood.

Some of Lucy’s favorite memories include the time she spent with kids, grandkids, and great grandkids.
