Lucille was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and great
aunt. When not gainfully employed, she was a world-class volunteer, giving
copious amounts of her time to the American Red Cross, RNCV (an organization
for which she was volunteer nurse of the year so frequently that the organization
awarded her a lifetime honor), St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church and
many other worthy organizations. She was an exemplary Cub Scout den mother
and football mom to her sons. She was generous with both her assets and
her time, and many friends and family were beneficiaries of her remarkable
nursing skills, love and compassion. Lucille Musgrove was a true steel
magnolia in the finest sense of the word. She joins her husband Hal in
heaven so that they may resume their life-long love affair.
