  1. Lucy, AKA Mama to me and many others, was a wonderful woman who was a huge part of my family growing up. She and Lawrence were a cute couple who spread love and laughter everywhere they went. I have so many wonderful memories that I will forever cherish. In remembrance of her, I have made a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association. Love you Lucy and I hope you are resting in peace now. With love, Beverly


    Lucy Maddux and her husband Lawrence were dear friends of ours. We had and shared many good times together. They both enjoyed the simple things in life that many people take for granted and they loved helping others along the way. Lucy was a person that gave and shared much joy in the lives of others around her. We extend our sincere love to Lucy’s family at this most difficult time and may the memories we all share be with joy and hope that we all will be together some day in our heavenly home with God.
