Known as "Lucille" by her family and friends, she was born on October 27th, 1923 in Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii. She graduated from Roosevelt High School and worked at First Hawaiian Bank in Honolulu. After marrying the love of her life, James (also a Roosevelt graduate) in 1946, they devoted their time to raising four children. Having moved on from First Hawaiian Bank, Lucille utilized her accounting skills at Beerman's Grove School in Kailua, Oahu. While in Hawaii, she was active in Central Union Church, Daughters of Hawaii and Outrigger Canoe Club.
She and her husband retired to Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 1983 where she enjoyed a life that was rich with loving family and many, many friends.
Words cannot describe how special Lucille was. Truly loved by everyone who met her, she was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, mother in law and friend to many.
She will be deeply missed by all.
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
