Lucia was an avid adventurer in her younger years and loved to take her grand children just about anywhere she could drive her pickup truck. She was the most generous soul always willing to help those in need and was known to have canned food behind the seat of her truck just in case someone was in need.
She was a woman who knew what she wanted and how she was going to get it never taking no for an answer. She also knew that her way was always the right way and you didn't dare argue with her. She loved to read romance novels, watch HGTV, loved animals of all kinds and loved her sweets! Lucia was also known to have candy bars stashed EVERYWHERE and at the ready to send home with her great grands after a visit.
Lucia had been determined to make it to her 95th Birthday and meet her new great great grandson and in true Grandma fashion she did just that!
Donations can be made in lieu of flowers to the Hospice of Dayton for the phenomenal care they provided to Lucia and her family over the last few months.
Arrangements will be with Littleton Funeral Home of Sabina. There will be a short viewing for immediate family held at Littletons. A visitation at Bartons Funeral Home in Adairsville, GA will be on Wednesday August 2, 2023 from 11 A.M. until noon when Lucia will be laid to rest in Adairsville beside her husband and daughter at Hayes Cemetary in Adairsville.
