H. Carroll Theological Institute, 301 S. Center St., Suite 100, Arlington, Texas 76010. Lucille was born in Bronson, Texas, on September 21, 1918, although the exact year of her birth remains a family mystery. The loss of both parents and difficult circumstances in a large family instilled in her a determination and will that survived to the end. Her life reached stable ground when she married Ray Boulware in 1938, remaining his faithful wife over forty years. They made their home in Beaumont, Texas, and raised tw0 daughters, Linda and Barbara. Lucille was a loving and supportive mother who deeply cared for her home and family. A great joy in her life was to host many family events where she served her specialty -chicken gumbo-and graciously opened her home for parties and showers. Lucille was blessed with a servant's heart. She was an active member of Calvary Baptist Church, Beaumont, over fifty years. Her devotion to Christ led her to minister as church hostess, children's Sunday School teacher, and greeter for worship services. She exhibited a quick wit, kind spirit, and generous outlook. She was faithful in support of her church and Christian work at large, especially B. H. Carroll Theological Institute. Lucille moved to Ft. Worth in 2003 to be near her family and managed to live independently into her 90s with the help of her daughters. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ray Boulware, and beloved sisters and brothers in the Boulware and Keller families. She is survived by her brother, Leroy Keller and wife, Patsy, of Jasper, Texas; her daughter, Linda and husband, Dr. Bruce Corley, of Fort Worth; her daughter Barbara and husband, Rev. Earl Sprague, of North Richland Hills; her six grandchildren and spouses, Dana Corley Holland and husband, Bryan, of Colleyville, Kerri Corley Ingham and husband, Bill, of Denver, Scott Corley and wife, Caren, of Fort Worth, Elizabeth Corley, of Dallas, and Micah Sprague and wife, Julia, of Hurst; eight great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
