While she was young, Lucy was academically gifted and had strong, athletic prowess. She could always be found with her nose in a book. But she excelled at many sports like basketball, volleyball, and running. She carried a great love for her grandparents and honored their memory by sharing the cultural teachings they taught her with the rest of her family.
Outside of work, she was a bon vivant, enjoying the finer things in life, making special trips for a five-star meal and a fine bottle of wine. She enjoyed the great outdoors while playing golf. She was known for teaching the game to novice players. And, she had a huge love for animals.
Lucy was very humble about her diligent fight for her community’s well-being. She was best known to the people of Wiikwemikoong for her work in the social assistance department at Ontario Works. Her passionate advocacy for her people touched the lives of many, young and old. She always went the additional mile for any Band member in need.
To honor her memory, she would want you to exemplify her favorite motto: Do what’s right, do what’s good. Be kind and help others.

The family will host a mass and a feast in her memory in Summer 2021.
