She was born on Sept 4, 1922 in Gotebo, Oklahoma to her parents, David Hobart and Nellie Cecile (Smith) Pierce. She grew up in Gotebo, Oklahoma along with her parents and two sisters, Lena Mae and Faye until the age of 18 After graduating from Gotebo High School in 1939, Lucille attended college at Oklahoma College for Women in Chickasha for one year and then Central State College for one semester until 1941 when she married LaVern Greenlee at the age of 18. They had 50 happy years of marriage until his death in 1991. They moved to Van Neys, California in 1941 and then returned to Gotebo for a brief time until they moved to Wichita, Kansas where she worked for Southwestern Bell until LaVern left for the Coast Guard.

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort however, from the future promise recorded in Revelation 21:4 which says “he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” We have assurance from God’s word the Bible and we can be certain he will fulfill his words.

My sincere sympathies for the loss of your dear loved one. Precious memories are yours to keep. Stay close to friends and family for support and draw strength from prayer during this time - Acts 17:27.
