Lucy was the matriarch of a large, loving family. The mother of many, the guardian angel of all. She was a quiet woman with an infectious laugh, who loved jokes even though she couldn't tell one to save her life. She was a very strong woman who never stopped giving it her all.

She will be so deeply missed.
