Lucille is named for Great Aunty Lou, a smart, spirited woman who dressed to the nines, sang to the rafters and savored her Manhattan cocktails. She was the dame of ditties, always ready with a catchy saying or song, no matter the occasion. Her natural exuberance made even the most mundane moments seem festive. And, she was the real-life sister-in-law of Frances.
A true maker, Lucille was a lifelong seamstress and a later-in-life artist. She sewed her own clothing, often brightly colored and tailored to perfection, both reflective of her energetic, lively personality. When not
adventuring abroad, Lucille painted in watercolor, with a focus on the Arizona desert landscape.
Lucille, like her namesake, has energy and flair to spare. And she
follows the motto of “Work hard, play hard, and let’s celebrate.”
