She spent many years raising her family near Meyerland, where she attended Holy Ghost Catholic Church on Sundays and was a parishioner for over 50 years. She spent the last several years at University Place Retirement Community where she made many new friends during bingo, bridge games and other social activities.

During her 44 year marriage to Charlie, she met many interesting people and was able to travel to Europe accompanying him on business trips, as well as vacations visiting friends who were on work assignments there. She was an accomplished bridge player & was a social member of Brae Burn Country Club, where she regularly organized the Friday Bridge Club & Luncheon and the monthly duplicate bridge games. She volunteered annually at the Offshore Technology Conference during the period it was held at the Astrodome complex.

She was able to accompany her children and grandchildren on various memorable vacation trips to Canada, Louisiana, Arizona, Florida, Washington DC & a Gulf of Mexico cruise.

Lucy was a sweet, caring, friendly and generous lady her entire life and will be missed by everyone who knew her.

Funeral services are scheduled for 10:00 AM on Saturday Sept 9 at Holy Ghost Church, 6921 Chetwood in Bellaire and burial will follow at 11:30 at Forest Park Cemetery on Westheimer.
