Oh what happy memories I have of Lucille. She was a role model for each and every member of the Bougger family and will be missed. The opportunity to grow up with her in my life was so very special. Her talents in baking and sewing are ones that I admire to this day. She could bake the best kolaches ever! In fact, I use her bread recipe when baking rolls for my family when we gather for special events! Doing so will always keep her close in my thoughts, heart and prayers. She was truly a beautiful lady, inside and out. The kindness she showed to each and every individual who crossed her path, including that of my mother, will never be forgotten. May she now feel peace, comfort and happiness in the loving arms of God and her beloved husband, Otto. Hugs from across the miles. Mary (Ellen)

It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart I acknowledge the passing of Lucille, truly a beautiful and lovely lady. You could not help but feel loved by Lucy, her warmth and heart over flowing with caring and kindness when you were in her presence was her trademark. It never ceased to impress me how she lived a life of excellence, to her attention to details in everything she did and her dedication to her family was extraordinary. A woman, the quality of Lucille will not walk this way again, she was truly an amazing person and it was a privilege and honor to have known and loved her. Many blessings Lucille on your journey home till you see the face of our Lord and take the hand of Otto once again. With Love, Liz
