I am so lucky to have been able to call Lucille Grandma. I loved going to her apartment and talking about music and crocheting and how much she loved Her family. it was a joy to spend time learning to play pinochle and share family stories. The thing that struck me the most was her unconditional love and acceptance that reflected Christ's love. I will miss seeing her and seeing her bright smile as we walked in the door. I am glad though, that instead of pain, she is in heaven rejoicing. I also want to say thank you for allowing me to call you Gramdma and giving me your love. Until we meet again!

I had only gotten to know Lucille over the last 4 years. What a wonderful "lady" she was.
When we would have our visits, I loved getting her to share her stories about her life. She loved to talk about her family. I enjoyed visiting with her, and especially liked it when I could get her to laugh.
She was a wonderful friend, and I will miss her dearly.

One of the first memories I had of Grandma was the whole coffee thing where she offered coffee in the afternoon and pulled coffee from the cupboard out of old thermos. Old stale coffee but she was never one to throw things away. She helped raise a beautiful young woman named Cindy and I will be forever grateful to her - for the way she loved and cared for those around her. She was a great example to those she loved. You will be be missed.

Grandma loved the color pink, playing her piano, listening to music, playing pinochle, BLT sandwiches, and her Lord. It is nice to remember, and see the things she loved and remember her through them. She was one of the most Christ like people and prayer warrior a grandson could ask for. I know the whole time I was in the Navy, Grandma was praying for me. I will miss her.

I am privileged to be the youngest grandchild of Lucille Anderson. She was one of the only people to ever be allowed to call me Becky. I will always remember the hours and hours that I was able to spend with her during my young childhood. Living next door to her until I was 14 allowed for many days together. She was always willing to have me over for a few hours or a few days. We spent many happy times together, baking cookies, eating popcorn and orange juice, watching Lawrence Welk, doing our exercises, reading books, working in the garden and just enjoying each other's company. I always knew that she loved me and that no matter what, that wouldn't change. She taught me so many things, how to bake, how to tie my shoes, how to garden.
When she moved to Cristwood, it was really hard to not see her every day. It was fun though to go visit and swim with her at the pool there. We had some special times together while I was in high school at Kings and able to go visit her after school.
Over the years we went on some fun trips together, California, Harrison Hot Springs, Hawaii, and New Orleans.
I will always be grateful for this last year with her. It was such a joy to watch her with my son. On days when the pain was unbearable, just seeing Wyatt would make her smile. Seeing them together is something I will always remember. His little face would light up when he saw her. He loved to go visit her and play with her doll, Sally Ann.
She was such a huge part of my daily life growing up and she will continue to be in my mind and heart forever.
