Lucy spent most of her summers at the cottage and beach with her sisters. She is survived by her daughter Louann Yacawych-McGee of Kentucky and her sister Carmela Cliche of Bristol. She was an aunt to so many wonderful nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews. Lucy had a magical way of connecting with children.
