Mary and Reg, Jim and family, we are so sad to hear of your mom’s passing, she was such an amazing lady. She truly embraced life in all aspects; her work ethic, her sense of humor and quick wit, her story telling and so much more. The world is definitely a better place because of Lucy, she was a true leader. Her passion and zest for life inspired a contagious enthusiasm to anyone that had the pleasure of sharing a conversation with her. I am so glad that Mary(my sister) and I took Dad over to visit her and Jimmy last August. We had a wonderful visit and along with that, we were treated to a beautiful meal of corned beef and cabbage. Thinking of you, lots of love 🌹

It was like we were old friends & we had just met. I had a few visits with her after that initial one & she remembered me. A remarkable lady & a remarkable mind.

If anybody could exemplify a 'life well lived' is was Lucy - "A joy to know," to have played cards with her was a treat. Her 'bubbly' personality was infectious and warming. She lived life to the fullest and now she can "spread her wings" and she'll flap away with God as her guide.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
With sincere affection,
