Lucille was born February 22, 1917 to Louis and Maude (Beeche) Fischerat Wales, ND. She was raised in Wales and attended school there graduating with the class of 1935. Following graduation she spent time with her family before marrying Roland Meyer on November 23, 1939.
They made their home in Ipswich, SD where Roland worked with his brother-in-law at the Gambles Hardware Store. Roland and Lucille eventually purchased the store.
She was an active member of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Ipswich and served on the Altar Society and the St. Anne's Study Club. She also served the community as an eighteen year member of the Beebe Memorial Library Board. Lucille also belonged to the Jollyettes Extension Club and the Progress Club for many years.
She enjoyed playing Bridge, was an avid reader and spent time doing handiwork, cooking and watching birds.
As her health declined she moved to the Golden Living Center in Ipswich in 2001 where she remained until her death on Tuesday, September 30, 2008.
