Lucille Margaret Anderson
Heaven received another angel on Thursday, April 22, 2021 as Lucille (Luci) Anderson, 94, passed away peacefully with her family by her side.
Lucille was born December 1, 1926 to Euclide and Maude Rainville in Deer Lodge, Montana. After graduating from high school, Lucille and her Mother moved to Roy, Utah were she worked Civil Service at the Naval Base. Lucille met her partner and love of her life Mikel in Roy, Utah while he was stationed there with the USAF. They were married on December 9, 1953 and were married for 67 years.
During their years together they lived in the Netherlands (Holland) and took a trip to Germany and Paris. In 1964 Mikel was transferred to George AFB, where Lucille went back to work in Civil Service until she retired in 1970. She enjoyed traveling all across the United States exploring new adventures. She was very competitive in fishing, card games and scrabble. She loved being in her garden or sitting on her porch swing watching the hummingbirds and the trains go by. Wherever Lucille was, her cat "Lily" was always with her. She loved all the holidays and family get togethers and watching the grandkids and great-grandkids grow up and spread their wings. She loved to give hugs to everyone and always had a smile on her face. We all miss her dearly and she will be forever in our hearts and minds.
Lucille is survived by her husband Mikel (Andy) Anderson; daughters Sherry Odam, Valerie Lehmann-Frost and husband Jim Frost; grand-children Christopher Lehmann, Tamara (Dylan) Bradford, Ashley (Anthony) Castleberry, Eric Odam, James (Jimmy) Frost, Joey (Robin) Frost and Jacob Frost; great-grandson's Jack Bradford, Liam and Finley Castleberry and great- granddaughter Willow Frost; Sister-In-Law Mary Farrand and Louella Langdeaux; cousin Patty Tomulty; nieces Jami McKissick and Jill (Matt) Zuleg, nephew Rick (Alice Jo) Rainville and her cat "Lily". She is proceeded in death by her parents Euclide and Maude Rainville, brother Joseph Rainville, nieces Ronna Rainville and JoLynn Swantkowski, nephew Randy Rainville; and son-in-law James Lehmann, Jr.
