Born August 24, 1929 in Schoolfield, VA, Lucy moved to California with her husband, Tom, in 1955. They first lived in southern California where she focused on being a full time mother to her two children, supporting them in their Campfire Girls & YMCA youth program. Lucy and Tom moved to Salinas in 1973. While living in Salinas, Lucy worked for the Monterey County Municipal Court and the County Election Department, retiring in 1985.
Lucy is survived by her high school sweetheart and loving husband of 63 years, Tom Cole, of Hollister. She is also survived by her daughter, Vickie Cole of Concord and her son, David (Debra) Cole of Salinas; and was proud of her grandchildren, Will, Matt and Allie Cole. Lucy has one surviving sister, Mary (George) Conner of San Antonio, TX and numerous nieces and nephews.
Over the years, Lucy enjoyed hosting a great party so in her honor a Celebration of Life will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, February 2, 2013 at her son's house.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the donor's favorite charity.
