She retired December 2, 1977. In 1995, Lucille and Ben moved from Mason City to Mesa, Arizona where they became involved with new friends and activities. In 2005, Lucille moved back to Mason City, where she enjoyed renewing acquaintances. She had a wonderful, active life. She was involved with her grandsons and all their activities, and watched her family expand as they married and had children. She often remarked what a blessing her family had been to her. Lucille was very healthy over the years until just weeks before her death, when she experienced kidney failure. She was able to be visited by all her family and many loved ones during this time. She looked toward her heavenly home with her Savior, Jesus Christ. Lucille’s family is very grateful to Dr. D. Timpe, Dr. Alscher, and the yellow Hospice of North Iowa team for their loving care of Lucille.
