Hassel, Lucille E.

June 24, 1927 — December 6, 2021

Lucille E. Hassel, 94, passed away December 6, 2021.  Lucille attended Scarritt Elementary and Northeast Junior High. She graduated from Northeast High School in 1944. Lucy had a variety of jobs in her lifetime. One of Linda's memories was when her Mother told her of a summer where she and her friend Mary worked at a mail order catalogue called, National Bellas Hess. Linda recalls how both girls giggled at the absurdity of sorting through and matching pairs and piles of Hirachi sandals. In High School she worked at Western Union. Later in life she was a receptionist at H and R block and an order filler at Montgomery Ward. Lucy worked nineteen seasons at the IRS as a Data Transcriptionist. Lucy was an exceptional wife to Floyd and they were married for just shy of 50 years due to Floyd’s passing. They knew each other as children and became childhood sweethearts.

Lucy was a wonderful mother to Mike and Linda. She was always active in the PTA, she was a room mother and a den mother in Mike's Scout Troop. Linda recalls how her Mother held the pack meetings in her basement. Lucy cared for her Grandmother at their house on Jackson Avenue in her grandmother’s final years. Some of Lucy's happiest years were as a Grandmother spending time with her grand children and watching them grow into fine men and women. Lastly Lucy was a wonderful advocate for animals donating countless hard earned dollars to various non for profit organizations. Her grandchildren recall how the majority of their lives she had several dogs and cats whom were part of the family.

Lucy is survived by her Daughter Linda Marrs, her sons Michael and Jacob, with great grandchildren Tatianna, Joshua, Sam, Howard and Austin; her Son Michael Hassel and his daughters Lorie and Tammy with great grandchildren Kara and Justice.

What a wonderful woman. I’m sad to hear of her passing. Granted my time with her was brief, she left an impression on me as a kind and loving person. She always made me feel welcome in her home and treated me with kindness and respect.

I've known Lucy since I was 16 years old! She Always had a smile on her face and an infectious laugh! She treated me more like a daughter than a daughter-in-law! My mother told me many many years later, she unerstood why I loved Lucille (she loved Lucy also) as they became good friends and went out to eat lunch and shopped from time to time! Even after our divorce, I still went to visit her on occasion! She had also came to my house. One of my memories of her & Floyd is when he would pull her up off the couch and dance with her! She lived a very long & fulfilling life and loved by so many people! She will truly be missed! With Love, Ginny

Grandma’s house was always where I felt most at home. When I was growing up, I visited her home every other weekend. So many treasured memories of spending time there. Building couch forts, playing spies with my sister Lorie, being read to each night out of my favorite orange Childcraft book, camping out in the backyard, and making homemade ice cream! I was extremely fortunate to get to know my Grandma and Grandpa even more when I lived with them beginning the summer before my last year of high school. I know I sometimes drove my Grandma nuts with my normal teenage angst but she loved me dearly and somehow, we both managed to survive! Grandma was probably the best listener I’ve ever known. It takes a special person to listen as intently as she did. I always felt heard after a conversation with her. I will miss her dearly but am so happy she had such a long life filled with love, family, and friendships. Anyone that knew her couldn’t help but fall in love with her sweet and gentle spirit. Love you forever Grandma!

Dearest Hassel Family, what a sweet and caring person Aunt Lucy was. We always enjoyed seeing her at the Christmas parties. As she got older she would come and find a chair and everyone would take turns visiting with her. She always had a smile and a special sweetness about her. She will be missed but I take solace in knowing that her God, Uncle Floyd, Mike and Bill have welcomed her home. You have my heart, Leta

One of my fondest memories is our Christmas gathering two years ago. Aunt Lucy and I were having a ball talking and laughing uncontrollably. I will miss her dearly. Doug

What can a granddaughter say about such a lovely person inside and out. Everybody who loved my grandmother adored her. With good cause, she was one of those lights who walked into a room with a smile that could warm the coldest heart. I was lucky enough to know her my whole life thus far. I know she knows how loved she was, and I thank all of the Hassels side who brought our Christmas to her the weekend before she passed. I love the stories and notes we read as a family letting us know the special times they spent with my grandparents through the years. I will miss her dearly, but I have solace knowing how loved she as been.

We all loved Aunt Lucy so much. She was a big inspiration to me and I looked forward to staying with Aunt Lucy and Uncle Floyd every summer when I was at college. The holiday gatherings at their lovely home were always wonderful. They welcomed us all with open arms and created such a strong sense of home and family. Aunt Lucy was very musical too. When she was growing up in Northeast, her best friend was Mary Hassel. Aunt Lucy would play the piano while Mary danced and sang the classics. Every week, Lucy and Mary went to the dime store to pick out new sheet music together. There was always music and a great love of music in Aunt Lucy's home. Aunt Lucy was usually a blonde, but she did try out a black hairdo one time. Aunt Mary showed us the one picture she had of Lucy with the black hair. She looked lovely either way. Aunt Lucy truly cared about every member of the family whether they were children, grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews, the list goes on and on. We will always remember her loving heart and beautiful smile.
