Lucille and Lee lived in Misere on the family farm while she began her teaching career at Gardner School in 1962 and then taught at Roosevelt School from 1962 to 1966 .

Lucille’s teaching career continued in Green Bay at Eisenhower Elementary School. While teaching there she earned her masters in Education through Lesley University. She taught for thirty five years at Eisenhower Elementary School and completed her final year of teaching at King Elementary in 2001. Lucille’s passion in life was her faith and family. She was a devout Catholic who attended daily mass with her husband and was a frequent participant at Relevant Radio. Their travels included several trips to Medjugorje where she enriched her beliefs of the Marian movement. They enjoyed their religious retreats on Chambers Island. She was very active in the Cursillo prayer group and was an inspiration to family, friends, and fellow parishoners. She provided community service with distribution of communion at Bellin Hospital. Our family is very grateful for the compassionate care the hospital provided to Lucille on the last day of her life. The family would like to thank Fr. Bob Rhyner, Chaplain Will Tabb, and Fr. Tim Shilcox for their support during Lucille’s hospitalization. Lucille loved her family dearly and instilled faith based values for three generations.
