    My deepest sympathies to her family. I met Lucy during a karaoke night at Animal House and later at the Avenue. She would always request for me to sing a song for her. I found out that l worked with her daughter and her grandson! I dearly loved Miss Lucy and really enjoyed her company. She always closed the night with “Goodnight Sweetheart”!!! Well “Goodnight Sweetheart”” l love you and I’ll see you again someday!!!

    I enjoyed Lucy and danced with her a few times. She did have a friendly smile. May her family find peace in their wonderful memories of her.

    My condolences to the family for your great loss. Like so many others, I knew Lucy to be a kind & happy soul. I’d like to share a fun memory of how I met her. I first met Lucy in my late 20s while visiting the Avenue bar on Washington Ave. She would be sitting at the bar playing Texas Holdem on one of the machines. She would order buttery n***** shots for herself and others. She would dance with us later on the dance floor to many classic rock songs. I can still see her dancing in my mind. Her smile was infectious. It was a pleasure to see someone so full of life enjoying their later years. It was a big lesson to me at that time and still is. I still want to be like Lucy in my twilight years – soaking up life in all crevices. I only wish I knew her longer. Again, I send my condolences to her family. May you find comfort in all memories of this unique woman.

    We lived next door to the Kemmerer’s on Outer Drive. They use to play cards with my parents and I bought my first car from them. Lucy and Bill were so much fun. Have fondest memories.

    So sorry to hear about Lucy. So enjoyed dancing and laughing with her. Even at Walmart, always time for a hug! She had a heart of gold! One song always comes to mind when I think of her….”Mustang Sally”. The bands loved playing that for her! RIP Lucy!
