Doris E. Lucas Obituary
DORIS E. LUCAS With family at her side, Doris Edna Lucas passed from this life around 3 a.m., March 22, 2016. She was ninety-four years old. Doris was born on May 21, 1921 in Chico, California, the fifth of six children of Elmer W. Peacher and Clara Spencer Peacher. She grew up attending Chico Schools, and shortly after graduating from Chico High, she met Jack Lucas. They were mar-ried on October 30, 1940. Their first son William ("Skip") was born while they lived in a home on Esquon Road in Durham, and Ray followed two years later. In 1961 Jack and Doris moved their family to 9785 MacAnar-lin Avenue in Durham. Jack passed away in 2006, and Doris con-tinued to live there, joined for several years by her son Skip, until about three years ago, when she moved to Roses and Ivy Eldercare in Chico. Doris had many friends and was an active volunteer in Durham for more than fifty years. In 1998 she was honored as Woman of the Year. She was an active member of the Durham Women's Club, and she and Jack were charter members of the Durham "Good Sams. Doris was a mem-ber of Durham Commun-ity Baptist Church, and for years worked as a receptionist for KHSL television, and later as secretary at the Durham Elementary School. Doris was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who will be cherished and deeply missed by family and friends. She is survived by her son Skip Lucas, of Chico; Ray and Sue Lucas of Durham; grandchildren Jennifer Gibbs and hus-band Eric of Vineyard, Utah; Loretta Miller of Sacramento; Larry Lucas of Merced; and Scott and Stacey Lucas of San Tan Valley, Az. Doris had seven great-grandchild-ren, and is also survived by Jack's step-sister and her husband, Dan and Rosalind McNair. Doris' family would like to express special thanks to Brian, Cindy, and all the staff of Roses and Ivy for their extra-ordinary loving care, and for making Doris feel truly like family while she was there. A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, March 29, at Glen Oaks Cemetery (Midway & Hegan Lane) at 11 a.m., with a viewing at Newton-Bracewell Funeral Home, Chico, on Monday the 28th, from 6 to 8 p.m. Condolences may also be sent to NewtonBracewell.com.
