Lucile Ming Quebedeaux passed away December 16, 2008. Many who knew her might be surprised to learn that Lucile Quebedeaux was an accomplished horsewoman. Born December 3, 1919, she was the third of four children of cattleman, Thaddius "Bud" Ming and Ivy Mae Hoopes Ming. Mrs. Quebedeaux grew up in the vicinity of Ray, Arizona. Ranch life taught her such values as thrift, self reliance and common sense. Following graduation from Ray High School, Mrs. Quebedeaux moved to Phoenix where she attended secretarial school. She worked at radio station KTAR, and then at Phoenix Motors, where she met her future husband, John Quebedeaux. In 1961 the Quebedeaux family moved to Tucson, where Mr. Quebedeaux owned and managed Quebedeaux Pontiac until his retirement in 1984. Mr. Quebedeaux died in July, 1996. Quebedeaux Pontiac-GMC is now owned and managed by son, Tom Quebedeaux. In addition to raising her family and working as a full time homemaker, Mrs. Quebedeaux was an avid gardener, bridge player and golfer. She volunteered countless hours for numerous organizations including Meals on Wheels, the American Cancer Society, the Arizona Heart Association, Assistance League of Tucson, and Alpha Phi Mothers' Club. She was known as a devoted wife and mother, a kind and sensitive friend, and a gracious hostess. Her intelligence, generosity, good humor and gentle temperament will be missed. Survivors include her brother, Dan H. Ming who resides in Texas; daughter, Loraine Whitmore and her husband, Phillip of Portland, Oregon; son, Tom Quebedeaux and his wife, Joanne and her son, Patrick Morris of Tucson; daughter, Ann Quebedeaux and her husband, Richard Cone, of Cardiff, California; grandchildren, Rachel, John Michael (Sarah), and Christian Quebedeaux and their mother, Nancy Faulkner of Tucson; great-grandchildren, Ysabelle Arguidas and Michael Thomas Quebedeaux; niece, Helen Cooper of Tucson and nephew, Lewis Taylor of Kearney. No services will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests remembrances to the Alzheimer's Association or the Humane Society.
