They later bought a farm southwest of Sutton where their three children were raised. She started working at the Sutton Community Home in Sutton when it first opened in 1964 and worked until she retired in 1995.

I had the opportunity to met Lucille at Perkins 400 while she was recuperating from knee surgery and I was recuperating from hip surgery. We had all of our meals together every day and I cherish the time that we had together. She was a wonderful person that I had the privilege to get to know. I know that you all will miss her terribly. It sounds like she had a full like and I know that she loved each and every one of you.
