Lucille married Jack Baker on December 26, 1952. He died January 21, 2000.

Lucille graduated from Abilene High School and attended Hardin-Simmons University. Lucille worked at Thornton's Department store for 40 years. She and Jack, her husband, enjoyed their lives together for 49 years. They had many fishing and hunting trips with friends. They loved to have fish fry's and have family and friends over.

Lucille was an outdoor person; she loved working in her yard and enjoyed her garden. She loved taking walks and loved sitting out at night and gazing into the sky.

She attended University Baptist Church and was an active member in the Ruth Sunday School Class. She thoroughly loved the ladies that she attended with.

She moved to University Place in February 2007. Lucille was very active in all of the activities there. She loved her family at the Place.

Lucille loved her family; but above all, her God. She was a "trooper" and lots of fun to be around. She could always make you laugh. She had a lot of determination and will power to always be the best she could be no matter what she might be enduring.

She will be missed by all who knew her. She lived a remarkable 95 years and was ready to meet her Lord when the day arrived.

She had two amazing doctors who cared for her, not only as a patient but as a friend, and a great big thank you to Dr. Cavuoti and Staff and Dr. Nick Patel and Staff. And also, a big thank you to the Outreach Health Nurses.

Preceding her in death were her husband and parents; sisters, Rowena Collins and Elizabeth Marshall; brother, B.A. Young, Jr.; and two nephews, William Thomas Young and Jerry Marshall.

Surviving her are niece, Pat Williams and husband, Roger, of Tahoka; two nephews, Joe Young and wife, Nedra, of Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico and Don Young and wife, Jeanette, of Plains, TX; four great-nephews, four great-nieces, eleven great-great nieces, and a great-great nephew; and Makayla Carroll, Mika Mayo and Thelma Elmore, who were wonderful and amazing caregivers to her.

Memorials may be sent to Ben Richey Boys Ranch, P.O. Box 6839, Abilene, Texas 79608 or the Abilene Fire Department, 1250 EN 16th, Station 5, Abilene, Texas 79601.
