Lucy stayed at home to raise her daughters; she sewed all of their clothes when they were little. She loved gardening and flowers. She was a devoted grandma and she loved watching her grandkids do anything: softball, academic team, band, horse shows, choir, dog shows, soccer, and their drama performances. She made it her personal hobby to spoil them. Lucy worked at Arby’s for the last 25 years (since Greensburg Arby’s opened). Many people will remember her as the voice of the drive thru.
