Age 54. Epitomized by her final word "PRAY", she was a kindhearted, humorous, courageous, wise and gracious lady who touched the hearts and lives of all those blessed to know her. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. On Sunday, February 10, 2013, her favorite day of the week, she passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Lucinda was the beautiful wife of Curtis, her true love and best friend for 33 years. Their souls and spirits shall forever remain intertwined. Lucinda was the loving mother of three sons, Devin, Hunter and Westin, with whom she adored and cherished every precious moment. Lucinda is predeceased by her father, Capt. Frederick R. Koepke, US Air Force (ret) and survived by her mother, Lois, brother Rick, sisters Kimberly and Candace. Lucinda was born in Winter Haven, FL and grew up living at various Air Force bases, settling in Miami for her high school years. Lucinda had a zest for life with family and friends, and enjoyed entertaining, beading, jewelry, art, running, bicycling, tennis, golf, jet skiing, water skiing, snow skiing, hiking, and the wonders of nature. Lucinda graduated with a Liberal Arts degree from the University of Florida, where she met and married Curtis. Upon graduation, she enjoyed her career as a travel agent. Lucinda dedicated herself to her husband, sons, family, church, friends, schools and community. Lucinda volunteered eagerly as a Sunday School teacher and VBS leader at First Presbyterian Church in North Palm Beach, PTA at all schools the boys attended, PEO, Teen Moms, Hands Together, SunFest, Junior League, ArtiGras, and many other worthy causes. In 1987 on the golf driving range of North Palm Beach Country Club, Lucinda put together the inaugural Festival of the Arts, which flourished into ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival. A memorial service in celebration of Lucinda's life will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 10:30 AM at First Presbyterian Church in North Palm Beach, 717 Prosperity Farms Road, North Palm Beach, FL 33408. The family will be receiving all who wish to express their condolences at a reception in Fellowship Hall immediately following the service. Food and celebration will be provided. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making a donation to in memory of Lucinda. She accepted and loved all fortunate enough to meet her. Treasure your memories of Lucinda. "Bye for Now"
