As a young girl, Lucille was a member of Chestnut A.M.E. Zion Church, and she attended Fair Promise A. M. E. Zion Church. During the early 70’s she joined Johnsonville A.M.E.

When she was not working in her church, she was in the kitchen making those famous candid yams, lemon meringue pie and blueberry cobbler, not to mention those cabbage.
