After graduating high school in 1946, Lucille met her husband, Gerry, and together they enjoyed hosting family events at their home in Newington and traveling extensively.

She enjoyed reading, listening to music, sing-a-longs, word games, Scrabble, trivia, playing cards, and was on a bowling team. Lucille liked dogs and cherished her black poodle, Nanette.
