Luci was born October 27, 1927 to George and Pauline (Ziegler) Knaub in Butte, SD. The family later moved to the Valley and she attended several area schools, graduating from Scottsbluff High School in 1945. She married Ray Haun, the man she adored, on September 29, 1946, and they made their first home in Terrytown. Ray then built their dream home in Gering where they spent the rest of their married life. Lucille worked at JC Penneys for several years before she went to work for the Gering Public Schools as a secretary at the high school. While she worked there, she kept her own children as well as her grandchildren in line when they attended high school, and even kept the teachers in line. She retired from the school in 1994. After her retirement, Luci spent her spare time in the summer perfecting her golf game, recording three holes-in-one during her golf career. In the winter, she worked on her bowling skills, participating in the Nebraska State Bowling Tournament for 52 years, and also participating in several National Bowling Tournaments. The highlight of her trips to the state tournament was getting to go out to eat and have lobster. Besides golfing and bowling, Luci enjoyed spending time with her family and especially enjoyed watching her grandchildren in their many activities. She was also blessed to be able to watch some of her great-grandchildren in their activities. They were always excited to have "Grandma Great" show up for their performances. Lucille is survived by her daughters Karen Bolzer, Sandi (Don) Gable, and Joy (Kirk) Arnold; son Allen (Mary Kay Haun); nine grandchildren; and twenty great-grandchildren. Lucille was preceded in death by her husband, parents, two sisters (Mildred and Elnora), a brother (Elwood), a son-in-law (Ron Bolzer), and a great-grandson (Toren Gable).
