    I am so very sorry I did not know this until today 7/9/2013. Alice was a very special lady to me and my mother especially. She worked closely with my mother at Dublin Garment and my Dad worked with Mr. Leffler at Pulaski Furniture and Coleman. I me Alice there as well. My Mother spoke of her often and they would run into them in town over the years. I saw her often when I lived in Pulaski. I live in Max Meadows now and did not see that she had passed. I used to see them in McDonalds sometime on Sat. or Sunday. She always had a smile when she saw me. I don’t know if anyone will see this but I just had to say something about these precious people. God Bless This Family. I know she is in heaven with my Mother and Dad.

    I am so saddened by the passing of Lucille. She was such a sweet, wonderful person. I never heard her say an unkind word to or about anyone. She was Sunday School teacher to 3 generations of my family, (me being the oldest), and I can still remember some of the lessons she taught and how little kids argued over who got to sit next to her at worship service after Sunday School. Things will not be the same without her. My heart goes out to Junior and the rest of her family. We were all privileged to know her all these years and I will miss her.

    My heart is heavy in learning of Lucy’s passing. I found out Monday morning. I am so sorry for the loss a such a wonderful friend and a genuine Lady. I have known her for 30 plus years and my life was all the better for it. Junior I am so sorry I missed being there at service.
    May our heavenly Father give you the much needed strength and faith to comfort you in days to come.
    She will not be forgotten!
    God bless,

    I just found out about Lucilles passing, I was so sorry to hear this. I came to know her when we worked together at Dublin Garment..she was such a sweet sweet lady. She would speak to everyone at work and always had a kind word to say. I lost track of Lucille through the years, but we were reuninted 20 years later when my parents, and then my family as well, started attending Memorial Christian Church in Draper..She and her huband were never blessed with children of their own and they welcomed all the youngsters in the church matter how crowded the pews were, Lucille woul “make room for one more”. She happily looked after and cared for her brother John..such a happy, close family. My condolences to the family.
