On August 19, 1949 and May 16, 1954, respectively, they welcomed their two sons John and Steven to the family. While Lucille worked occasionally at part-time work, she spent most of her years as a homemaker.
Lucille was active and athletic. She enjoyed boating, playing tennis, playing cards, and spending time outside. She enjoyed the years that she and Jack lived at the Waterways in Moriches, NY, where they were extremely active and had many friends. Lucille particularly enjoyed visits by her grandchildren and spending time with them on her boat. In her last years, Lucille looked forward to visits by her great-grandchildren at the Assisted Living Facility.
Lucille was a great mother and will be missed by her family and friends.
