Lucille E. Germaine (English) 98, Fargo, ND passed away peacefully December 21st at Rosewood Broadway nursing home.

Lucille was born March 14, 1917 in Steele, ND, the first child to O.B. (Bart) and Sophia English. She grew up in Steele, and graduated from Steele High School. In 1935 she married Aloysius Germaine. They lived in various places, including Steele, Bismarck and Escanaba, Michigan before settling in Fargo, where together they raised six children.

Lucille was a long time parishioner of St. Mary’s Cathedral, and for many years was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary and St. Mary’s Choir. She was also an active member of the Royal Neighbors Society. Lucille loved to stay busy—especially on election days. For many years she was put in long hours every Election Day as a poll worker. At home, when she wasn’t sewing, crocheting and upholstering furniture, she was up on a ladder painting or wallpapering. No job was too big for her to handle, but she would often admit her biggest job was raising her six children, in whom she took great pride.

Lucille is survived by her daughters Yvonne Larson, Dallas, TX, Betty Ann Vettel, Hillsboro, ND, Janice Dexter, Apache Junction, AZ; and sons Barton (Janis), San Clemente, CA, Steven (Judy) Moorhead, and Robert (Karla), Minneapolis, MN, as well as 15 grandchildren, and 16 greatgrandchildren.

She was preceded in death by husband Aloysius; sister, Dorothy Foote; brother, Loraine English; and sons-in-law, Alan Larson, George Vettel and Keith Dexter.

A Memorial Service will be held at Boulger Funeral Home on Saturday, December 26th, at 2:00, with visitation one hour prior to the service. A reception at Boulger will follow immediately after the service.

The family would like to acknowledge the wonderful staff at Rosewood on Broadway for their tireless commitment to the compassionate and loving care for Lucille. In lieu of flowers, Memorials preferred to Rosewood on Broadway Auxiliary.

    I just want to thank you all for allowing me to get to know Lucille. She was an amazing woman!!! I will miss her soo much. That smile of hers and the twinkle in her eye when she thought she was being sneaky.. I will miss crawling in her bed with her or hiding in her bed when she was coming back to her room. We had a lot of fun together. You guys were truly blessed with a wonderful mother… Thanks again for sharing her life with me..

    Read of your mom’s passing and wanted to express our sympathies. I remember your mom well from the old South Terrace days and I wondered where all you guys were at. Just wanted you to know you are all in our thoughts and prayers this Christmas. Take care and God bless.

    Dear Steve and Family, I was saddened by the news of your beloved Mom’s death! She was such a sweet and kind lady (even when her and my Dad plotted to “break us up” in the 9th grade!!). LOL!! She would remember me and always be glad to hear/see me, thru out the years! You were so blessed to have her in your life for so long! I wished that I could be there to celebrate her legacy with you and Family. Be at peace, my Friend and know that a whole bunch of love, thoughts and prayers are “flying” across the miles!!!

    Bart, thinking of you during one of life’s most difficult times. Losing a parent means we are the elders and we have a lot to measure up to. I am sure you are up to the job. Just remember they are always with us, looking over us. Jeanne

    Bart, sorry for your loss. I did not know of passing until 28th. Would have been to memorial, had I
    known earlier.
