June 18, 1918 - April 23, 2011
Lucille Roberts, age 92, passed away on April 23, 2011, at Mother Joseph Care Center in Olympia.
Lucille was born in Woodward, Okla., on June 18, 1918, to Carl and Florence Jinkens. She was raised in Woodward, but moved as a young woman to Cushing, Okla., where she met and married Harold Roberts in
1936. They were parents of four children.
Surviving Lucille are her two daughters, Janice Welker of Olympia and Cheryl Coats of Dixon, Calif. She was the grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of 10. Two sons, Darrell and Larry, preceded her in death.
When Harold passed away in 2009, Lucille moved to Olympia to be near her daughter. Family will always remember Lucille for her skill at card games. She was hard to beat. She was also known as an excellent seamstress and did beautiful crocheting. She is best
remembered, however, for her kind and gentle spirit. She was loved by all who knew her.
Her daughters are especially grateful for the way she taught us to be good citizens. She raised us to be far more than we could have been without her. Goodbye, mother. Rest in peace, and we will be together again one day, Your loving family.
