Lucille enjoyed spending time & chatting with her friends, dancing, playing cards and traveling. She once told her daughter that when she started her married life that she wasn’t a very good cook or baker. Over time, she perfected these skills. Lucille's potato salad, fried chicken and caramel rolls were especially great.. her family and friends loved them!
