She was the oldest of three children. Lucille was a devoted homemaker and mother. She also helped her husband, Sam Gillipsie, with bookkeeping for his masonry business. Lucille was a talented pianist. Lucille’s musical talent was God given, as she never took music lessons. She brought joy to many in the community, playing for various events and church services. Lucille loved to dance and enjoyed country music. She was also known for her fashion sense. Lucille was always laughing and knew how to have a good time. As her grandchildren would say, “She’s too cool to be called grandma, that’s why she’s Mema.” Along with her parents, Lucille was preceded in death by her daughter, Cheryl Ann Gillispie. Survivors include her husband, Sam Gillipsie; son, Todd Gillispie; brother, Michael Wesley Bolejack; sister, Janet Bolejack Williams; grandchildren, Blake Gillispie and Erica Welling; great-grandchild, Sebastian; niece and nephew, Nicholas Bolejack and Lindsey Bolejack, and numerous cousins.
