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.
