Very sorry for your loss. Dave was my uncle, I am Frances Keys’ oldest daughter. I knew Dave very well and got to know Lucy much better through High School. She was my PhysEd teacher and class counselor. I loved their love they had for their dogs. I’m a dog lover too. Our families are rejoicing in Heaven because one more family member has joined them in Blessed Eternity.

Lucile was a wonderful friend and co-worker. I had the privilege to work along side of her for the first sixteen years of my teaching career at Winchester Community High School. She was a very kind and generous Christian lady. I will always remember and be thankful for her immense help and encouragement while I was a young educator. Everyone should be as fortunate as I was for knowing her and being her friend. The world is a little less better off without her presence. May she rest and rejoice peacefully in our Lord's presence.

How grievous to learn of Lucile's passing. My fond memories are of her as one of my teachers, our class sponsor, and decades-long colleague at the high school. I'll miss her special frienship and unforgettable laughter. God Bless✝️

We are sorry to hear about Lucille's passing. My spouse and I used to see her at the Winchester Cafe about supper time. She was a regular. Her spouse Dave, was a class ahead of mine at WHS.

Deepest condolences at the loss of Mrs. Parker. We got to know her outside of school when Dave sponsored my niece at Shriners Hospital. Very kind, caring people. Prayers for strength and peace.
