Lucy attended Lincoln Jr. High and Albuquerque High School, returning to school and receiving her diploma in 1986, while attending continuing education classes at TVI.

Lucy also taught exercise classes, assisted with commodity distribution for the County and was a volunteer with the Department of Senior Affairs for many years. Her most cherished moments were spending time with and serving as a role model for the children involved in the Atrisco Environmental Learning Project as a Program Leader. She not only instructed the children on planting and growing vegetables but also making scarecrows and most important, life lessons. Her children can attest to her excellent cooking and baking skills and her professionally decorated cakes. We will miss our Mother dearly.
