Lucille was born July 2, 1921 to the late Homer R. Massey and Altha V. Marsh. She is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Dent; two grandsons, James Andrew Drawhorn and Larry Steve Drawhorn; seven great grandchildren; and nine great great great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of sixty-three years, Clayton R. Dent; and granddaughter, Wendy Atkins.
Clayton and Lucille met at a movie theater in Paris, Tennessee, her home town near his army post, and were married six weeks later. Lucille enjoyed baking, working with ceramics and making her daughter’s (as a child) clothing. She was known by her family and friends for her pound cake, homemade vegetable soup and her biscuits. Lucille took pleasure in teaching her daughter her domestic skills. Cleanliness is next to Godliness and soap doesn’t cost much were two of her favorite sayings.
Born at home without hospital care and weighing in at one and a half pounds, she was a survivor, outliving all of her siblings.
The family of Liberty UMC brought much joy to her in her later years.
Lucille, her beloved “Darlin,” “Pooh” and all her family are reunited.
Hart’s Jones County Chapel, Hart's Mortuary and Cremation Center, 307 Pecan Lane, Gray, GA 31032 has charge of the arrangements.
