She was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, and three sisters.
Lucille was a waitress working at local restaurants in the area including Mona's in Toluca and Amigoni's and Bechtel's in Roanoke.
Lucille's greatest treasure in life was her family. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She enjoyed sewing, attending her families sporting events and just simply liked to sit with Coach and watch baseball and basketball on TV.
A celebration of life will be planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Roanoke Ambulance. Online condolences and tributes may be sent to the family at www.knappjohnsonharris.com.
