The following is her story put together by Polly Horn.
|Dorothy's 7th Grade
Teacher J. W. Strawn
Dorothy Lucile Kendrick was born October 27, 1909, in Mt. Sterling, OH, the third child of farmer William H. and Dora (Merrill) Kendrick. Her sister Hazel was born in 1894 and her brother Ralph born in 1898.
Between 1910 and 1916, the family settled on a farm near Berkshire. In 1913, Hazel married Ralph Williams and did not move to Delaware County with the family. So I am guessing between 1913 and 1916, the family settled on a farm near Berkshire.
Dorothyís brother Ralph was 19 when he married Evalyn K. Wigton, daughter of Charles and Eva Wigton, in 1917 in Delaware. On the 1920 census, Hazelís 5 year old son Paul C. Williams is living with Lucille and her parents in Berkshire Township, in Delaware County.
|Following high school,
Lucille (changed spelling of name) went to business school and lived
in a womanís boarding house in Columbus.
Upon completion of her education she worked as a bookkeeper
in the banking industry. On July 19, 1936 she married Doyle Devere
Lucas in Franklin County. Although they were married almost 50 years
they had no children.
