Preceded in death by her parents and several siblings.
She loved every type of gardening. From roses to marigolds to house plants, her green thumb never failed her. She enjoyed spending time with her grandkids, family and friends. Believing in the power of prayer and an unwavering faith, Lucia lived her daily life by her favorite verse Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
