  1. I worked with Lucille for many years at Billings Clinic. Human Resources was just around the corner from her office. She was a special person with a distinct sense of humor. As a matter of fact, I was talking fondly about Lucille just last week. She had a sneeze that I stated you could hear in the next county and put my sneezes to shame! When Lucille sneezed, it was sure to send me 1-2 inches off of my chair!

    I want to sincerely send my condolences. I wish I could have seen her more once she retired.

  2. Lucy, I remember all the time spending with you and Howard fishing and camping and just staying over night with you. You took over when mom dies and helped me so much. Last summer when I was in Billings, Nicole and I came to see you and then went shopping for you. I helped feed you and reminded you that tables have turned as you fed me when I was a baby. You were a great part of my life and I love you. I had to find out you passed from a Karen which saddens me. May you rest in peace.

    Your niece,

  3. Aunt Lucy, I will forever remember all the time we spent together. Between camping, fishing, and going to lunch. You and Uncle Howard took me on my first fishing trip and I caught a rainbow trout. I remember staying with you when I was sick. I have so many fond memories of you both. I missed you both so much, after I moved away, and visited when I could. When I brought my girls to see you, Howard told me that was the most you had smiled in a long time. I’m thankful that you will now get to be with Howard. All my love, Jami
