BELLVILLE: The constant smile on Lucille Spoon’s face wasn’t because she had a perfect life; it was reflective of the joy in heart, her appreciation of blessings in her life, and the unmerited grace she enjoyed in the Lord. For decades she served as greeter with her church family, welcoming worshipers with a grin that only the Savior could inspire.
Lucille passed away peacefully Saturday morning October 21, 2017 in her daughter’s rural Mansfield home. She was 90.
Born Lucille Dorothy Stogner, January 18, 1927 at Sandy Hook, Mississippi to John F. and Emma S. Stogner, she had been an area resident since 1948.
Remembered as a regal woman of dignity, she was a 62-year member of Pleasant Grove Community Church. Lucille had worked as assistant head cashier with the former Frank’s Super Valu Foods in Lexington, and enjoyed gardening: large vegetable gardens in years past, and more recently flowers. An avid reader, Lucille enjoyed mysteries and Christian fiction, working crossword puzzles and cherished time with her family.
Surviving are her sons James Spoon of Bellville and Charles (Delinda) Spoon of Fredericktown; her daughter Linda (Dan) Wittmer of Mansfield; grandchildren James (Brandy) Spoon, Cari (Matt Smith) Spoon, Brian (Randi) Spoon, Jason (Meredith) Spoon, Danny (Melissa) Wittmer, Luke (Brittany) Wittmer and Jacob Wittmer; great grandchildren Taylor, Kagan, Dallas and Charlie Smith, Landon and Gavin Spoon, Nicholas, Elliott and Molly Lucille Spoon, Alexis Diehl, Olivia and Gabriel Wittmer; and Addelynn, Lucas and Lane Wittmer.
She was preceded in death by her husband Paul James Spoon; and 11 brothers and sisters.
The Spoon family will receive friends Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home. Her funeral service will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. in Pleasant Grove Community Church, 5471 State Route 546, Bellville. Pastor Ken Kinley will officiate. Burial will follow in Oak Grove Memorial Park, Lexington.
