Lucille Emelia Fischer George
1921-2014 DALTON Lucille Emelia Fischer George died at Columbia Memorial Hospital June 12, 2014 from a brief illness. Her friends knew her as Ciel. She died the exact same day that her beloved husband predeceased her by 38 years. She had a vision shortly after his death where he came to her during the night and asked her to come with him. She said she couldn't go as she had some obligations she wanted to see her children married and her grandchildren born. Her husband said he'd be back, but it would be in a long time. On her death bed, surrounded by friends and family, she talked and acted as if her husband were present. She died at an age of 92. She will be missed by all who ever met her as her spirit was contagious. She loved nature and animals and found God's beauty everywhere. Being a devout Christian, she was in constant prayer with God and praised him frequently.
