C. Lucille Cloud

C. Lucille Cloud, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, joined her Lord and Saviour on June 12, 2003 surrounded by her husband and two youngest children.

Lucille was born Catherine Lucille Storms on May 20, 1922 in Miles City, MT to Willis Porter and Bessie Cora Pack Storms. She was raised in Miles City, graduating from Custer County High School in 1940. She married Jack Roy Cloud on October 28, 1945. She and Jack raised six children in Miles City. Lucille was a stay at home Mom until their youngest daughter started school. She then worked at Aloha's Boutique and then later for the Miles City school district in the Administration office. In November 1972, Lucille and Jack moved to Richland, WA. Lucille was employed with J. A. Jones Construction Co as a clerk in the automotive department until her retirement in 1987.

One of Lucille's greatest joys in life, besides being a loving wife and mother, was becoming a grandmother to her 7 grandchildren.

While living in Miles City, she was a member of the First United Methodist Church and upon moving to Richland, became a member of Central United Protestant Church. She and Jack were members of the Rambling Rovers and enjoyed many wonderful trips and times traveling together with that group.

Lucille's happiest moments ever were always when her kids and grandkids were around.

Lucille was preceded in death by her mother and step-father, Bessie and William S. Cole; her baby sister, Norma Cole; her brothers, Cecil, Hershel, Loren Todd, Donald Donny, Gerald Judd, Orval Storms and Patrick Cole. Lucille is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Jack, her son and daughter-in-law Jack and Carol of Las Vegas, NV; her son and daughter-in-law Thomas Tom and Debbie of Arvada, CO; son William Bill of Helena, MT; her daughter and son-in-law Catherine Cathy and Geoff of Aberdeen, SD, son Richard Dick of Kennewick, WA and daughter Caroline of Richland, WA. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren Melissa, Jennifer, Justin and Michael Cloud of Arvada, CO; Lucy and Katy Durst of Aberdeen, SD and Taylor Cloud of Las Vegas, NV.

She is also survived by a sister-in-law and her husband, Kay and Ben Thompson of Gig Harbor, WA and by Jack’s aunt and uncle, Opal and Frank DeVine of Richland, WA.

Lucille was very thankful for all the visits, love and prayers of her family and so many friends during her illness.

Christian burial will be Monday, June 16, 2003 at 10:00 AM at Sunset Memorial Gardens in Richland followed by memorial services at Central United Protestant Church in Richland at 11 :00 AM.

Visitation will be at Einan’s Funeral Home from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday.

PUBLIC ENTRY

  • You both were very good to us as neighbors and we grew very fond of both Jack and Lucille. We were 2100+ miles from our home in Austin, Texas and we took a big chance moving to Washington without really knowing anyone. The people are what we remember the most and Lucille will always be in our fondest memories. Thank you Dick and Jack for letting us know. May you and your family take comfort in knowing that Lucille is truly an Angel in Heaven. We will keep you all in our prayers and in our hearts. P.S. Ziggy misses not playing with Taylor and Jack.

  • We will never forget the kindness and hospitality from Jack and Lucille while staying with them in Miles City and expecting our babies some 40 years ago. Lucille and I would stay up half the night doing manicures & Jack was a nervous wreck anticipating that I wouldn’t make it to the hospital in time! You are both special people to us in our very fondest memories. Love to the “kids” and thanks so much Dick, for calling.

  • I worked with Lucille at JA Jones in the automotive department. She was one of the nicest and kindest people I’ve ever met. She was extremely good at her job and we really missed when she retired. I know she was very proud of her husband and her sons. I saw her a few years later when she was volunteering at a gift shop in Richland and her great personality and love of life still shown through. Our lives have been richer for knowing her and we will sincerely miss her. Our condolences to the family.

  • Our love and prayers are with you Uncle Jack and the rest of the family at the loss of your loving and wonderful Lucille. I only met her once but the love and compassion and how she made me feel like one of the family – well, it was very special and I will always hold that in my heart as to the wonderful lady that she was. I’ve wished many times that we lived closer and could be more close with all of Mike’s cousins. Again, our love and prayers are with you all at this time.

    Love, Michael and Jae Storms

  • Dear Mom —

    I just have a feeling that up in Heaven somewhere, there must be “email” and that you will somehow get this message. It’s been a year now that you left us and I miss you now just as I did when you left us. I know you are looking down on all of us and when I think of that, it comforts me. Don’t ask me what made me even think about “writing” to you thru this website – I do, at times though, go to this website at work — it comforts me to see your picture. I miss you more than words can express but couldn’t wish you back becuz I know you are experiencing a peace far beyond what we here can imagine and that makes me happy to know that. The love and devotion that you and Dad had for each other and also for us kids, is one of the many, many things I am grateful for each and every day when I think of you. You are truly admired for the Mom that you were! Well, Mom, as crazy as this seems for me to be writing to you, I know you’ll understand why coming from me anyway! hehe May you always be in God’s loving arms and someday, we will all be together again. I love you Mom!

    Your son,

    Dick
