Born in Olton, June 17, 1920, to Guy and Alice (Kling) Willis, Lucille married Leo Ross Bryant on September 20, 1942. She worked as a bank clerk for Olton State Bank and a bookkeeper for Bryant, Giles Implement. She loved traveling with Leo Ross and they visited every state in the USA except Hawaii, Alaska, and Montana. In 1990, Lucille traveled to see the Passion Play in Germany. Lucille loved Olton and all the people in it. Olton was her favorite spot in the world and if something was happening in Olton she wanted to be involved. She was a member of the Olton Chamber of Commerce, Eastern Star, the Red Hat Society, and a Bunco Group. She was also a member of the First United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women.
An avid sports fan, she traveled countless miles with Shirlie Roberson and Donna Barnes to watch the Lady Raiders. A cheerleader in high school, Lucille continued to cheer for the Olton Mustangs, Red Raiders, Texas Rangers, and the Dallas Cowboys, keeping her fingers crossed during the games to help her team win. Over the years, Lucille won many awards in Olton, including Olton's Woman of the Year, Citizen Through the Years, Sandhills Queen, and Booster of the Year.
