Lucille Settlemoir
August 18, 1919-November 9, 2012

Lucille Settlemoir, 93, entered into rest on November 9, 2012 in Manteca. She was born on August 18, 1919 in Paragould, AK. She is preceded in death by her husband Elmo Settlemoir (married 43 years), son Dwight Settlemoir, her parents and her four siblings.

Lucille is survived by her children James Settlemoir (Pamela), Perry Settlemoir (LaDonna), and Brenda Roland. She was blessed by ten grandchildren and their spouses Lorenda (Brock), Shaniece (Robert), Randy, Ricky (Carla), Perry Jr. (Staci), Erin, Mason (Jennifer), Mathew (Kim), Stacy and April. She adored her 22 great-grandchildren  Matthew, Michael, Karin, Summer, Chelsea, Miranda, Nicole, Ashley, Colton, Perry III (Sarah), Samantha, Shawna, Nicholas, Terin (Kenny), Taylor, Tony, Trevor, Jene, Blake, Madison, Kyle and Joanne. She also had several great-great grandchildren. She has one surviving sister Helen Young and many nieces, nephews and cousins who she loved dearly.

Lucille was a homemaker the majority of her life. She loved making her home just perfect for her husband, children and grandchildren. She was heavily involved with the Brown Bag organization out of the Presbyterian Church in Manteca. She was a founder of the Widow’s group which she enjoyed their Thursday lunches talking and mingling. She found a sense of peace when crocheting blankets for each and every one of her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren which were made just special for each of them individually. She loved the challenge of a jig saw puzzle and found it more interesting when one of her grandchildren showed interest. She was extremely independent as she loved shopping with her dear niece Carolyn Tucker who was like a daughter to her.  She was a huge Giants fan. For her 93rd birthday she was able to cheer on her team to victory as she saw her name in lights “welcoming” her to the game. Among all of Lucille’s interests, her number one priority was her family. She enjoyed her weekly visits from her grandsons and her many family get-togethers where she enjoyed socializing with everyone present. Lucille’s zest for life and her love for her family will never be forgotten. She will be missed.
