She married the love of her life whom she called “baby”, James H. Richardson on June 16, 1952. After losing James in 2007, Lucille would hold his picture close to her heart and say, “I want to see my baby”. She could not wait to join him in heaven.
Family was the most important thing in Lucille’s life. When she was younger, she was very active with the ladies auxiliary at church. Her favorite bible verse was Matthew 7:12 and her favorite gifts were flowers and “what knots” as she called them. She enjoyed garage selling, working with flowers, and collecting ceramic dolls.
