Lucile Verna Monteer 92, was born August 6, 1924 in Ogden, Utah and was called home to our Lord on May 16, 2017. Lucile was preceeded in death by her husband of 62 years, Harold, in 2008. She is survived by sons David (Martha), Charles, Robert (Jacqueline) and daughter Margo (Gary) Carmichael. And loving grandmother to 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Whether it was dressing as a clown at her children’s birthdays, listening intently to a grandchild’s story or visiting with a friend Lucile always was kind, gracious and loving.
Lucile was a lifelong devout Mormon and member of Relief Society. One of Luciles passions and gifts was that of being an accomplished artist. Many of her oil paintings have won awards and have been displayed publicly. Some of her works were exhibited at the Mission Viejo Library for all to enjoy. In addition to her painting she loved music and played the organ.
Lucile will be missed by so very many people as she was a woman filled with compassion, loyalty and spirit. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, cousin and aunt. And a friend for life for those lucky enough to have met her.
Viewing will be on Thursday June 1, 3 to 5 pm at O’Connor Mortuary, 25301 Alicia Parkway, Laguna Hills with a small graveside service on June 2nd at 11am at El Toro Memorial Park, 2571 Trabuco Road, Lake Forest. A luncheon provided by Relief Society in Lucile’s honor will follow at the Latter Day Saints church.
