Carol E. Lucas, a lifelong resident of Port Washington, had an endless love for her family, helped others selflessly and made many people happy. All who came to visit her home were welcomed with open arms, a cheery hello, and a big smile. She loved to record all of life’s treasured moments with photos and videos, enjoyed her many flower gardens, and had a love for learning. She was patient, kind, and adored by many.
Carol was born on December 25, 1932 in Port Washington daughter of the late Alvin Thome and Lenore Hoeppner. She married George (Juner) Lucas on October 7, 1950 and was later blessed with three kids. Carol left us peacefully for heaven surrounded by family Wednesday, July 9, 2014.
Carol is survived by beloved husband of 63 years George, her kids Sharri Lucas, Debbie (Paul) Uhlig and Jeff (Jackie) Lucas, sister Shirley Parlow, sister-in-law Kris Lemke, eight grandkids and twelve great-grandkids. Following Carol’s wishes a private family service was held.
Carol was a cherished wife, amazing Mom, a wonderful Grama and an exceptional Gi Gi (Great – Grama) and will be deeply missed.
One of the most amazing women who has influenced me my entire life and helped me become who I am has gone home to be with the Lord. His garden has just become more beautiful. She made me laugh, held me when I cried and cried with me, was supportive and cheered me on, taught me I can do anything, was kind to everyone she met, had a beautiful smile and contagious laugh, was always complimentary to all and sought out new adventures, selflessly helped anyone she could and had a door that was always open. I will miss my Grama more then words can say and look forward to her meeting me with open arms (and the best hugs I have ever known) again. I love you Grama!
My memories of Carol was that she was a wonderful person. She was always kind, caring, and welcoming when I came to her and George’s place. It saddens me to find out of her passing. My sympathies to the Lucas family for a great loss.
I will always remember my Aunt Carol with the biggest smile on her face. My Mom use to say that it made people wonder what she was up to (in the nicest way). How true, because Aunt Carol was always helping others, constantly curious and looking for ways to connect with people and stay vivrant, That is how i will remember her.
