She was born on Nov. 19, 1919 in Linton, the first-born of John Branson Tucker and Nellie Talley Tucker.
Lucille was preceded in death by her husband, Karl Keller; brothers, Harry, Robert and Gene Tucker; two grandchildren, Elizabeth and Daniel Trinkle; and her parents.
Serving proudly as a volunteer of the Ladies' Auxiliary as a Pink Lady at Greene County General Hospital, she truly enjoyed offering assistance and a smile to everyone she met. Her sharp wit and wisdom for life endeared her to the many friends and admirers that she touched over the years. Her 90th birthday celebration last November in Linton was a testament to the legacy that Lucille created in the hearts and lives of the numbers of friends and family members influenced by her abundant life of kindness, love and generosity.
"With bushels and bushels of love," Lucille adored her family and is survived by all of her "favorite" four children and their spouses, Jim and Marilyn Trinkle of Burleson, Texas, Ron and Anna Trinkle of Mims, Fla., Mike and Ria Trinkle of Bedford Hills, N.Y., and Marsha and John Lawson of Arlington, Texas; as well as 12 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and one great, great-grandchild. She is also survived by sisters, Wilma Lee Barnard of Bloomington and Brancenia Clayton and her husband Bill of Indianapolis; and brother J.D. Tucker and his wife, Colleen of Arlington, Texas; along with many nieces and nephews.
