Lucretia Board(1927 - 2015)

photoLucretia Walton Board - A Quiet Rebel, Born December 29th, 1927 in Richmond, Indiana as the 12th child out of 14 children to Mattie Mae (Edwards-McGathy) and John Robert Walton, Lucretia decided early that by achieving a higher education, she could push back against the typecast roles that were meant to keep Black women 'in their place'. Lucretia made her transition on May 14th, 2015. She was the 'Last Walton Standing' out of a family of close-knit brothers and sisters. Children Carol Ann, Dorothea Lynne and James Bailey survive Lucretia. Lucretia gave her utmost to each of her responsibilities as Sister, Collegian, Wife, Socialite, Mother, Teacher, Activist and Caregiver. The Memorial will be held Saturday, May 30th, 2015 at 11:00 AM at the Guy and Allen Funeral Directors, Inc., 2959 West 11th Avenue, Gary, IN 46404.
