Lucy was born in Zabno, Poland on June 28, 1941. Although her family struggled with poverty after the Second World War, Lucy often spoke fondly of her childhood and cherished the many life skills her parents taught her. At the young age of 16, Lucy bravely immigrated to Canada with the help of her sister Helen and Aunt Mary in search of a better life. On her 18th birthday, Lucy met the love of her life Steve, whom she married in 1961. They created a beautiful life together and raised two wonderful daughters, Kathy and Barb. While raising a family, Lucy also enjoyed working at Seven Oaks Daycare and remained close with many co-workers after retirement. Lucy's grandchildren held a very special place in her heart as she was very proud and supportive of all their aspirations and achievements. Lucy was also a member of Holy Ghost Parish where she served as a lector and Catechism teacher for many years. Faith was a very important part of her life, especially in this past year when she faced many health challenges.
