Myrtle Lucy Douglas

We celebrate the home going of Lucy Douglas on June 24, 2001, at 5:15 a.m.  Lucy was lead into the open arms of her husband and the Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 78.  Her husband of 60 years passed away in December of 1999.

Lucy guided her family in the Biblical way of Proverbs 31: 10-31 verse 28 “Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also and He praiseth her.”

Her decorating skills beginning with her sons cub scouting activities and continuing for many years at First Baptist Church functions were greatly appreciated.

Many months of 24 hour home care was provided by numerous wonderful caregivers.  This was provided by selfless sacrifice of her daughter and son-in-law, Jane and Jerry Smith of Scottsdale, AZ.  Lucy is survived, as well, by sons, Jerry Douglas of Everett, WA, Larry Douglas of Kennewick, WA, 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

Lucy will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Memorial services will be at First Baptist Church, 1107 Wright Avenue, Richland, WA on June 27, 2001 at 11:00 a.m.

Flowers may be sent to the church.

  • I have known Moma ‘D, as I came to call her, most of my life. I can’t even remember the first time I met her, it must have been before Jane and Jerry’s wedding. I was 15 when I met Larry, but of course you know that.

    Wow, all the holiday meals, shopping, advise, help, prayer, umpteen gifts with those wonderful little eyeballs on everything for the kids. She gave and gave and loved and was loved so much.

    She’s the one who taught me how mashed potatoes were suppose to be made, with an electric beater! And the nut cups, and little “just because” things she did because she HAD to give. What an angel in human form.

    I remember so clearly how we couldn’t go shopping without meeting 4 or 5 people she knew, and she seemed to know every clerk and saleslady in town!

    It was due to her and Harold’s advise that I looked up my own “real” father. And I’m so glad I did.

    She always remained a part of our lives, even after we were not offically a part of the family. She cared so much for the kids and it was so important for them, Tammy and Sarah needed that extended family so much when they were growing up.

    I continue to be you Sister In Love. . .

  • Grandma,

    I will miss you greatly. You were the best Grandma a girl could ask for, always making me feel important and loved. I will always remember Christmas and Thanksgiving at your house. I will fondly remember shopping endlessly with you as a child and changing the flowers that decorated the church each week. I will always remember the unconditional love you gave me and Steven and Sarah. Thank you. You will be missed.

    Love

  • I remember the best Easter Baskets any kid could ever ask for. Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner with mashed potatos that no one could make like Grandma. I remember her cookie key chain that brought so many laughs as children in stores would come up and try to bite it. I will forever have in my heart the unconditional love that could only came from my Grandma Douglas. To Grandma, I will keep my hands warm.
