LUCILLE IRENE MORELAND Saturday, September 17, 1927 - Monday, August 21, 2017
Mrs. Lucille Irene Moreland, age 89, of Clever, Missouri, passed away on Monday, August 21, 2017, in her home. She was born September 17, 1927 in Vandalia, Illinois, the daughter of Louis and Irene (Metcalf) Knabe.
Lucille was united in marriage to Kenneth James Moreland, Sr. on November 5, 1945. Soon after Kenneth’s retirement in 1986, they moved to Republic, Missouri, and then had finally made their home near Clever for the past 17 years. Kenneth and Lucille enjoyed nearly 67 years of marriage before Kenneth’s death on June 7, 2012, and were blessed with nine children.
Lucille was known as a frequent visitor to the first Wal-Mart in Republic, so much so that she and her friends from Clever even had their own “table” to sit at inside of the Wal-Mart at the Radio-Grill. On Lucille’s front door was a sign… “If I’m not at home, I’m at Wal-Mart.” Others who preceded Lucille in death were their son, James Allen; their daughter, Jeanne; two grandchildren; and her parents.
She is survived by seven children, Joyce Henderson, Janet Moreland, Kenneth James Moreland, Jr., Terry (Yvonne) Moreland, Roger Moreland, Leslie Fiedler, and Teresa (Eddie) Farmer; 22 grandchildren; and several great and great-great grandchildren.
There was a private family viewing Monday, August 21, 2017, in Meadors Funeral Home, Republic. No other services are planned at this time. Family and friends may share online condolences on this website at www.meadorsfuneralhome.com
