On the morning of Thanksgiving, Lucille Marie Beeler passed away peacefully at her daughter’s home.
Lucy graduated from Central High School in Sioux City, Iowa. She graduated from Pierce Junior College with her A.A. degree and received the first award of merit in art that the college had ever given. Lucy also got her B.A. from California State University, Northridge.
Lucy was an art teacher at Sepulveda Junior High School. She loved being an art teacher and was an amazing artist. Lucy loved spending time with her family and cherished all the holidays together. Lucy loved nature and enjoyed capturing it in her art pieces.
Lucy is survived by her son, Terry Beeler; daughter, Marsha Thomas; and grandchildren, David Beeler, Jennifer Burton, Carrie Phillips, and Dustin Thomas; great-grandchildren, Brittany Dougherty, Brooklyn Beeler, Blake Beeler, Ashley Burton, Alyssa Burton, Trent Phillips, Jake Phillips, and Caleb Thomas; and great-great-grandchild, Payten Dougherty.
Lucy loved to sparkle, and that she sure did. She left glitter in all that she touched. We will all miss her amazing smile and shoulder up grin.
