Lucy met E. Norman Meska in 1952 at a YMCA dance in Dallas, Texas and would share 44 years together before his passing in 1997. Lucy loved reading, solving crossword puzzles, Sudoku, Scrabble, hand quilting, water aerobics classes, and making sure she got in her allotted steps for the day. She loved traveling and cherished spending time with friends and family. Lucy spent her life in Christian service, serving her community with her expertise in the accounting field and service at East Dayton Christian Church as treasurer, Sunday School teacher, youth leader, bible study teacher and mentor for many years.
