Lucille met and fell in love with William "Quentin" Wood in the spring of 1942 and they married October 3, 1942 in Memphis, Tennessee. They shared complete respect and love for each other for 75 years until Quentin's death in 2017.
She was completely devoted to her husband, children, grandchildren and her faith in God. She shared in growing and preserving the fruit and vegetables from our trees and garden but her true love was the flowers we grew for her.
