She was a member of St. Martin’s Catholic Church, a past member of St. Joseph Cathedral and was active in many parish prayer lines.
LucyAnn enjoyed cooking for her family and they still enjoy her recipes! Most of all, she cherished time with her family, especially her children. She spent many hours with her children’s spelling list at the end of her ironing board as she took in ironings to supplement the family income. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
