Lucy was born November 11, 1953 in Corrigan to Bernard and Lois Marie (Brooks) Skinner and passed away on Saturday, July 18, 2020 in Lufkin.
Lucy was born and raised in Corrigan, a place she called home. She graduated from Corrigan-Camden High School in 1973. Shortly after graduation, she began working at Hughes Petroleum in the accounts receivable department. During her tenure, she held several positions, retiring after 30 plus years of service.
Being a dedicated Christian, Lucy was a longtime member of First Baptist Church in Corrigan, working in the nursery and spoiling the children every chance she got. One of the many she spoiled was Matthew Moody, who was special to her heart. During her residence at Corrigan LTC, he would stop by to say hello and get a hug; it always put a smile on her face and brightened her day. She would also play bingo with the residents and visit with friends she made there. She was known as a “social butterfly”, never meeting a stranger.
Lucy found great solace in reading and writing poems. She also enjoyed the many old movies and shows on the western channel, especially Gunsmoke. Besides spending time with her family, Lucy had a passion for painting. She took painting lessons and could just about paint anything you put in front of her.
There are not enough words that could describe her gentleness, sweet character and her absolute love for her family. Lucy will be remembered for many things, but her love and devotion to her family will stay closest to those she loved the most.
She is preceded in death by her parents; Bernard and Lois Skinner; grandparents, James Monroe and Geogie Skinner; and sister, Patsy Skinner.
Lucy is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Tim and Jennifer Skinner of Corrigan; sister and brother-in-law, Beverly and Norris Nelson of Corrigan; aunt, Vera Stricklind of Corrigan; niece, Shalana Hyde and husband Kelly of Hudson; nephew, Trenton Nelson of Cypress; great nephews, Weston and Hayden Hyde of Hudson; grandchildren, Justin Hudspeth and wife Lexi and Katie Hudspeth; great grandchildren, Addi and Lily; cousins, Melissa Stricklind and Sarah Brooks; special friends, Janice Knoks, LaVina Bullock, Jamie Bullock, Billie Hughes, Mary Baker, and Loy Nell Smelley.
