March 29, 1937 - January 2, 2021

It is with deep sadness and great hope that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who passed peacefully at home in her sleep on January 2, 2021. She lived bravely and determinedly over the past months as her body weakened. Through it all she continued to find joy in her family and each sunrise and sunset.
Left to mourn her passing are her husband Henry, son Greg (Janet), daughter Kelly Ireland (David), grandsons, Jeff Armstrong (Debra), Paul Armstrong (Leticia), Eric Ireland, Tim Ireland and Kevin Ireland. Lucille also recently became a great-grandmother of her namesake, Lucy Armstrong. Lucille was predeceased by her parents, Louis and Alma, and her brother Pete Vieville. She is survived by her sister Vivien Skyba and brother Roger Vieville (Mary Ann), as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Lucille will be remembered for her enduring love and commitment to her family. Married at the tender age of 17, she raised two wonderful children throughout her 66 year marriage. She is fondly remembered by her loved ones for her quick wit, charm, excellent taste and one of a kind personality. Lucille was unapologetically herself and instilled in her family the importance of being true to who you are. She was a wonderful cook, excellent card player, and could light up a room with her sense of humour. Lucille, Toots, Mom, Nan, will be deeply missed and always remembered.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Lucille was always so lovely, gracious, and kind. Both she and Henry have been wonderful neighbours to my parents. I enjoyed our few roadside chats and really appreciated her quick wit and sharp discernment of character. I will always remember how easily Henry, as well as her grandchildren would make her laugh. My thoughts and prayers go to Henry and family as I know her passing has left a sizeable void in all their lives. - Posted by: Linda Guest (Former neighbour ) on: Apr 08, 2021

  • I remember first meeting Lucille down in Palm Springs where she and Henry vacationed annually. I was vacationing too and we met up. Henry took us for lunch and showed me the town. After that I went to their home. Lucille had, by then started to feel the effects of her disease, yet the family, being so close and united had so much hope. I will remember her smile, her colorful garden and her warm nature. - Posted by: Laurie Anne Marie Gyde (friend of the family) on: Apr 03, 2021
