Lucille Edith Von Moos 2Lucille was born November 9, 1928, in rural Houston, Minnesota, the last of eight children born to Fred and Augusta (Huebner) Beckman. She graduated from Storer Valley Grade School and later Houston High School in 1946.

Lucille worked at Trane Company in La Crosse for two years before her marriage. Later in her life when her children were in school, she worked for the Ridgeway Creamery for 26 years as a bookkeeper. She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She always had many baked goods ready for visitors as well as ready to offer a meal before you left. She faithfully read the Bible daily until her vision began to decline.

After Lauren’s death, Lucille moved to Heritage Court Apartments in Houston, where she made many friends. She had been a resident of La Crescent Health Services since July of 2020.
