My condolences and prayers are being offered to Lucille’s family. She was the best Mom to all of us who grew up at Isle of Hope. Unfortunately, I am out of town and won’t be able to make the funeral.

Lucille was in important part of my childhood as the mother of my very best friend. I remember the first time I met her, picking up Cindy. So many memories of her, tan in her swim suit managing the pool, pulling on her IOH fire fighter gear. Working at Jenkins. And raising an amazing family. I was in awe of her as a child. She was the Matriarch of the other side of the Island. She will be missed. And I am so happy she is no longer suffering, she will live in my heart how I remember her. Love and peace to all you Christiansens!

So sorry to hear that Ms. Christiansen passed away. I used to love sitting around Tom and Debi’s kitchen table listening to her stories about her children. We all knew she loved her kids so much! I am sure she will be looking down from heaven watching over the entire family. Heaven has gained another angel. Praying for the family during this hard time. Love y’all!!
